I am running a Windows 11 Professional build with a 12700K CPU and 64 GB of GSKILL F4-3600C16Q-16GTZR memory on the STRIX Z690-A board. This memory ran fine on my Maximus Hero XII Z490 board on XMP settings. I am running the latest 0807 BIOS and have had the same issue on the prior two BIOS versions. If I try either XMP 1 or XMP 2 windows fails to boot and collects error messages to send to Microsoft. I have also tried this with the CPU Overclock jumper set to both on and off. Also I noticed that setting XMP II, but setting the DRAM to 3400 allows Windows to boot and run fine, but anything higher will crash windows.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. First time I am running into this issue after years of building on ASUS boards.
I have exactly same issues.
BIOS 0707 and BIOS 0807 have loads of instability issues, bsod and crashes.
Running i9-12900k @ stock, 4x 8GB GSkill Trident (Samsung) @ 3200MHz CL14 (XMP1), Rog Strix Z690-A Gaming Wifi D4
I have reverted back to 0605, which I found to be most stable bios (didn't have any crashes or bsods on it at all)
Not sure what is going on with newer bioses 😕
I found this article after another forum poster stated the official speed is 4000 if all ram slots are populated https://www.anandtech.com/show/16959/intel-innovation-alder-lake-november-4th/4 <--- This makes sense, this is why XMP is not working for most of us
