I have an 11900K / Maximus 13 Hero & this issue has persisted through several bios versions! I use Adaptive OC method for all overclocking
If anyone from Asus sees this please respond, Im curious if you are aware of this issue. Last night I flashed from Bios 1601 to the new 1701 & immediately performed a basic 52x All Core OC & set all the necessary Bios settings. I did Everything correctly even made sure to set optimized defaults before & after I flashed the Bios.
I SPECIFICALLY MADE SURE TO SET "PCI EXPRESS NATIVE POWER MANAGEMENT" & "NATIVE ASPM" TO DISABLED! & EVEN DOUBLE CHECKED RIGHT BEFORE I SAVED THE PROFILE IN BIOS & MADE SURE TO SAVE & EXIT TO WINDOWS.
I powered down my PC & went to bed & when I just now powered on my PC tonight I noticed once again that HWINFO64 had hundreds of WHEA ERRORS & the event viewer also shows a ton of WHEA LOGGER EVENT ID 17 Errors! Please see my screenshot below?
The thing is I have had this same exact issue in at least the last 3 Bios Versions 1402 (maybe even earlier), 1601 & finally 1701! Each time hoping the new bios would fix the issue but it still persists. As I said I have to always keep HWINFO64 open on my secondary monitor cause I never know when ASPM will automatically enable itself & produce hundreds of WHEA errors! It happens at random. Im not even sure why it produces errors when its enabled? My overclocks are 100% stable.
I got this definition from ROG.ASUS DOT COM in an Asus written overclocking guide:
"PCI-Express Power Management
Advanced\ Platform Misc Configuration\ PCI Express Native Power Management is recommended to be DISABLED to prevent PCI Express devices from entering standby state to enhance both the device compatibility and performance as not all desktop based PCI Express devices support ASPM specification."
According to the definition the above 2 settings should be disabled but why are they causing windows errors? And why would they randomly automatically enable after being disabled & saving the bios before exiting?
BTW I do a clean install of windows every 6-12 months & just performed a clean install literally 3 days ago. Thanks!
