From our MB team, they say that enabling XMP will disable C-State (also if you set a manual ratio) to improve stability.  If you don't need the OC, you can enable C-State with the XMP.
 
These configurations should work for default Turbo of 5.2GhZ (based on 12900):
  1. C-State Enable + Enhanced C1 Enable
  2. C-State Enable + Enhanced C1 Disable


Thanks, Lee. I verified what you said, but I find it an odd implementation. Or rather, it's one I'm not accustomed to when using an XMP profile. Although, I did find out through my testing that leaving C1 enabled makes my 12900K have some wicked coil whine that's quite audible especially when moving the mouse. I saw someone else mention that in a different thread, so I guess that one's on Intel. Neither of my 12700K have that issue. Anyway, thanks again.

I'm going back to using C-State=Auto because I have 500+ hours of stable game-play that way. And I know that HWiNFO64 can run at boot and remain running. And CPU-Z's SPD Tab will work fine one time per session.
 
But with "C-State Enable + Enhanced C1 Enable", I discovered the CPU-Z's SPD Tab bug is directly related to HWiNFO64 running. Meaning if you don't start CPU-Z after booting into windows with HWiNFO64 auto starting, then close HWiNFO64 before starting CPU-Z, CPU-Z's SPD Tab will work fine. You can exit CPU-Z, then start HWiNFO64, etc. Bottom line, don't run both at the same time.
 
Therefore, I wonder if the Classy would prefer it be built and never runs CPU-Z and/or HWiNFO64. But that's an impossibility for me. I'm addicted to them both! Can't imagine not having them installed.
 
PS don't misconstrue ^^ plz. i LUV how EVGATech_LeeM explained,
  1. C-State Enable + Enhanced C1 Enable
  2. C-State Enable + Enhanced C1 Disable

So, today when I booted I've had the "new CPU installed/found" and "VMD thingie" and I've gotten to the BiOS/UEFi pre-screen, on 1.14. The rest of my system is in my signature [pending]

I’ve come across that with 1.14, but just a handful of times. Now, I’m not terribly familiar with EVGA motherboards, as the Z690 Classified is my first. However, I do find it odd that rather than a simple message along the lines of, “the BIOS has been successfully updated,” being displayed after an update, I’m typically greeted with a “CMOS checksum error” message along with being told the CPU and memory has changed. The checksum error seems to only occur after an update, but the CPU has changed message has come up randomly when booting with 1.14.
Exactomundo, but I've yet to see it another time since the time it showed, so...

And TBT, the issues I've had with Apex, Extreme and Glacial were much worse than occasional entering of BiOS so I'm good with this

you can edit the cpu-z ini file to disable SPD reading. Just change SPD=1 to SPD=0, save and restart cpu-z (common in xoc community for getting screenshots with systems right on the edge of stability, where opening cpu-z can lock the system at high frequencies)

cool. glad u added that to this thread.
 
but if i did disable SPD reading, when i go to the SPD Tab can i manually select a slot and it will display then?

QXEEE
This bios looks great, but will you guys add support for Renesas PMIC to go above 1.435V?

Try after enabling Extreme Voltage Mode.

If you disable spd it doesn’t attempt to read it. So if you need this info then I wouldn’t disable it. If the goal is to get cpu-z to open quickly without locking up the system then you have these configuration options

Brilliant! seriously. ty for the reply.
 
yes. i tried it yesterday. i have endless experience with Game config files, so it was easy, thanks to u. 
 
i went ahead and re-enabled it, and again, just can't run it more than one time per session.
 
can't wait for v1.15.

I’m not sure a fix is plausible for EVGA Z690 boards. After all, systems crashing when reading the SPD when loading an app like CPU-Z isn’t an issue that’s limited solely to EVGA motherboards.

That's really interesting as I have hwinfo on startup as I use a stream deck with the hwinfo plugin to give stats.

When you hard lock does everything freeze, the temp on the q code keeps reading for a few seconds, then it reboots, like no bsod or anything? I'm trying to figure out if my issue is the bios update or my new GPU as I did both at the same time which is when I started experiencing the hard locks.

My associates code is O1RWT3TOQ5NNXP8 if you wanna help !e get my EVGA score up :)

nah, for frequency ceiling cases it's usually up around 6.5-7.3 GHz depending on container temps and in many cases the benches complete but it is getting the CPU-z tabs open to get a screenshot for submissions that causes the crash. For this, CPU-Z specifically has an XOC mode in the ini file, but turning off SPD reading helps loading quite a bit, especially on cold mem where things may or may not be stable enough to run for a screenshot. At the highest frequencies it's common to grab the screenshot, clock down w Eleet/PX1, and paste in to paint to avoid an explorer or paint crash chalking the sub. this is all maybe beyond the scope of what normal users may experience, but the cpu-z configuration stuff is useful for everyone!

That’s exactly the type of crash I experience sometimes when loading CPU-Z, so it’s likely not your GPU or even the BIOS since the SPD crash isn’t limited to EVGA motherboards. If you’re not loading something that reads the SPD and you’re experiencing that kind of crash, then you may have another issue.

I get that same freeze with CPU-z loading SPD. No BSOD, just everything freezes. I also had HWiNFO64 loading at startup, so I could try to turn that off before opening CPUz to see if that makes a difference. I hadn't noticed this behavior until I updated to 1.12 or 1.14, but it came along with some other issues I haven't had time to look into yet. I'm wondering if they're all different issues with different solutions in my case. I've been chasing car issues all week with the wife's car so I haven't even tried to turn my computer on since Friday lol. I should have a second CPU I can run some tests with Monday, so hopefully I can narrow down what issues are CPU and what issues are motherboard/BIOS for me at that point. I just wanted to confirm you're not alone with the cpu-z freeze issue you've described.

Edit: what does cause a BSOD every time is if I open Intel XTU (even with BIOS on default/no-OC) and then ask it to read/scan the V/F curve. Just read it...BSOD. Every time.

I hadn't noticed this behavior until I updated to 1.12 or 1.14, but it came along with some other issues I haven't had time to look into yet. I'm wondering if they're all different issues with different solutions in my case. I've been chasing car issues all week with the wife's car so I haven't even tried to turn my computer on since Friday lol. I should have a second CPU I can run some tests with Monday, so hopefully I can narrow down what issues are CPU and what issues are motherboard/BIOS for me at that point. I just wanted to confirm you're not alone with the cpu-z freeze issue you've described.

Edit: what does cause a BSOD every time is if I open Intel XTU (even with BIOS on default/no-OC) and then ask it to read/scan the V/F curve. Just read it...BSOD. Every time.

I appreciate it, makes me feel better. So far I haven't had tried cpuz but I have had a ton of lock ups during 3dmark loading and occt loading, but I imagine both of those are pulling information from the spd.

Another weird issue I was having with 1.12/1.14 was the ram voltages all reporting 3.825v. So far no issues with that on 1.10 either.

My associates code is O1RWT3TOQ5NNXP8 if you wanna help !e get my EVGA score up :)

Replacement For Any Need For CPU-Z SPD Tab:
 
System Information Viewer, Current Release (Version 5.65 released on 14-Jul-2022), Changes include:
 
"Resolved issue with some Intel Alder Lake-S systems that only have DIMMs on Channel B."
 
I just tested it and it works. Works repeatedly. Works with HWiNFO running from Start-up. But, I'm still running BIOS v1.03 + Optimal Defaults + XPM. (And note I make a Full/Incremental Backups Images of my OS's drive everyday. So experienced ppl only plz.)
 
System Information Viewer Home Page
 
So, if it works for others (BIOS versions) and ppl want to have access to other options in CPU-Z's, just  follow Zippytek's advice and edit the CPU-Z's .ini file and set "SPD=0".
 
That way (with "SPD=0" in CPU-Z's .ini) u can always open CPU-Z like -- i luv to too. And say, run a stress test. Or check all the little stuff u don't like to bother memorizing. Or just open it to open it. Plus with System Information Viewer, u can always quickly check if ur XMP profile is properly loaded.
 
In order to check if ur XPM is properly loaded in SIV (System Information Viewer):
(Note: SIV (MUST BE Version 5.65.))
 
A. Manually Install SIV. (After DL from SIV Home Page and unzipping "siv_v5.65.zip".)
B. Make a Desktop Shortcut that points to "SIV64X.exe" in the install folder.
C. Launch SIV from Desktop Shortcut.
D. Close the Initial Info Page (it won't open again. Maybe deselect update option -- i did.)
E. At the Top of Main Page, in the middle, second row down, click on the square button; mine reads, "5.60GHz Quad DDR5 RAM".
F. Scroll down to the bottom where it reads, "SPWD Enabled".
 
 
 
If there's a Box next to "SPWD Enabled", with a Grey Check-mark then XMP is loaded on ur PC. Feel free to click on the check mark. It's Greyed-out. So u can't deselect it.
 
Edit:
And if u go to the [SPD Details] page and scroll most of the way down, u'll see:

SPD Field Description                               #    DIMM #0                         DIMM #1
Profile 1 String Name                               654  Lv1-5600C36                     Lv1-5600C36
Profile 2 String Name                               670                                             
Profile 3 String Name                               686                                            

 
Profile 1 is loaded!

@tresnugget,
 
but are u running HWiNFO at startup?

Just saw this, yeah, hwinfo is running at startup


i remember having many probs specifically with 3DMark loading. (u mentioned in Post #44.)
 
i thought it was related to 3DMark being nurfed by new owners of the software. it could have been due to a bad SATA cable i diagnosed a few weeks into my Classy build six months ago. Maybe probs were caused by permissions (or lack there of) on my drives. and they were all properly corrected.
 
i believe the probs with 3DMark starting still existed though.
 
But, i ran 3DMark just the other day and no probs whatsoever with it starting.
 
(i was comparing my 3DMark scores to the current world record... but see they were on previous Gen Intel. so i was curious.)
 
i think the solution is: i run HWiNFO64 at startup but never open CPU-Z or software similar to it.
 
i'm going to go run it now and double check. brb
 
Edit: Ran 3DMark Port Royal perfectly including Demo at start. It loaded fast (normal). Valid result.
See: http://www.3dmark.com/pr/1683879

I don't think it's a SATA issue, definitely not in my case, as I have no SATA drives and actually have the SATA controller disabled in the bios most of the time. It always freezes during the collecting hardware info screen and given that others are having issues while opening the SPD tab on CPUZ (I very rarely open CPUZ) it's probably an issue with HWINFO running while 3DMark checks the memory information. I also just noticed (while writing this) that since I have had HWINFO running at startup, none of my saved runs display my memory specs. It only displays that it was 32gb of memory but doesn't display that it's 2 16gb gskill sticks running at 6400 mhz.

cool, cool.
 
 
i was only suggestion MY probs HAD possibly been related to my bad SATA cable and nothing to do with u; and my cable was replaced after i diagnosed it. it's hard to remember specifics after six months without documentation.
 
And the freezes when 3DMArk starts, as it displays on the splash-screen:
"Scanning Ststeminfo............."
 
^^that's exactly wat i was double checking today.
 
but i especially wanted to focus on software similar to CPU-Z (anything that scans system) while HWiNFO is also running from start-up or at the same time.
 
before ur post just now ^^, i even ran 3DMark again -- very successfully -- but with one difference... ran it with the only software i know has addressed the scan issue and the makers of that utility fixed it... so i threw it in the mix. 
 
Here's how:
 
A. I kept HWiNFO running as before on previous post.
B. Started SIV (System Information Viewer) and minimized it to the Systray (running in background.)
C. And still no probs with 3DMark loading, completing including Demo at start and receiving a Valid score.
 
i think with ur PC, tresnugget, "occt loading" + HWiNF running should be considered a possible explanation for problems with 3DMark.
 
And until a PC is restarted, the multiple utilities scan problem may persist. At least, that's wat i have experienced. And see the start of Post #47. The issue they resolved stood out to me last night as i researched a replacement for CPU-Z. And if the SIV utility developers diagnosed and fixed it why haven't others?

New DDR5 (6400 CL32) has just arrived  and I was planning on updating the BIOS during the 'upgrade' (current memory going to another RIG). 
 
Will post any problems here with the 1.14 version... 
 
[EDIT]: everything good so far! :-)

Load the BIOS, go to Advanced Configuration (top left option), Advanced, CPU Configuration, CPU C States. Change from Auto to Enabled, then change Enhanced C1 state from Enabled to Disabled.


Soooooo.... sh*t!!  This just fixed the issue I was having with booting the system after making ANY change to the CPU settings. And I mean... ANY!!

Once I changed the C1 State to disabled, I went to change the OC to what was stable using ELEET which is 5.2 all P's / 4.1 all E's / Vcore set to 1.3 override.  I tried setting the Ring clock to 40 as well but that would only cause a post code 71 again.  I can set that in ELEET and it will stick until a reboot, but I cannot set that in the BIOS and post.  I will try more later, but I'm STOKED to have found this one post that I somehow missed while troubleshooting over the last month.  Kind of feel stupid, but... it's working multiple boots.  Hopefully it sticks for good and no reflash, or worse, RMA.
