I load always optimized defaults from BIOS. I haven't flipped the BIOS switch at all (if such exists on this board, I havent checked) and tried 0601 and 0802. 0601 freezes in splash screen sometimes and almost immediately in Windows. But when I loaded XMP again the board ran fine for 45 minutes and then I went to sleep...
Don't know what to do as everything kind of works but not together on the R6E. Might have to start RMAing the CPU. If it's a BIOS issue I guess the channels to contact ASUS to try replicate this are nil?

I have the exact same issue happening here - but on the I9-7900. Random freezes on windows and even on the bios screen when at safe settings. Changing CPU options does not helped. This got much better after changing the dram timings / voltage to manufacturer suggested settings - 19/19/19/39 with 1.4V. I still get random freezes though, usually after days with the computer on without any issue. Not sure yet the cause but guessing it continues being memory. Possibly because I am running two (same SKU/manufacturer) 16gb kits to get to 32gb of memory, on a quad channel config. Tried to increase DRAM voltage but has not helped. Will try to increase the timings next to see if it gets better. If it is not memory, then things will get really complex.

Try a single kit. Need the full part number of the kit, and also the full system config - everything you have plugged in.

Thank you Raja ! Any help you can give is most welcomed.
Memory Kit: F4-4266C19D-16GTZR - DDR4-4266 PC-34100 8mbx2 - CL 19-19-19-39 1.4V

Intel I9 7900x (delidded) , cooled with a Kraken x62
2 kits of the aforementioned memory (total 32gb)
2 samsungs 960 Pro 1tb in the DIMM2 with EKWB heatsinks (DIMM2@CPU, running in software raid)

ISSUE: at safe settings, computer freezes constantly and frequently, at random times, even in BIOS. At optimized settings , it works for days on - but ultimately freezes randomly too.
