PCie 4.0 WHEA

Level 7


I noticed that after connecting the RTX 3070 GAMING OC and set rigidly Pcie 4.0, the OCCT program and Furmark rog edition report WHEA errors.

After verification by HWinfo, the HWEA errors are confirmed.

As soon as I set Pcie 3.0, the errors disappear.
GPU-Z correctly identifies whether it is now version 3.0 or 4.0

After trying to replace the card with a 6700XT, the problem is still the same.

Tried using Windows live, running from a flash drive but the problem still occurs.
The cards WORK CORRECTLY on other computers, the problem is clearly with the motherboard.

RAM swap did not change the situation, bios downgrade from 3210 to 3206, 3010 and even 2802 did not help and was just a waste of time.

With Riser Pcie there is an identical problem, so it does not matter if it is connected THROUGH the riser or without.


Anybody knows what's the fix?

Are there whea errors in the event viewer? Don’t know if this is the same thing, but look at this bios tweak in this thread. Not sure if it’s the same issue.
