    Hi Lee. Thanks for working this. I can confirm that the memory slot error issue with CPU-Z has been fixed. However, the "fixes turbo ratio" part of version 1.14 does not seem to have made any impact. My 12900K is still seeing a max of 4.9 GHz for the P-cores and 3.7 GHz for the E-cores. As with 1.12, the cores will boost higher if I disable the C1 state in the BIOS. But oddly enough, I'm not seeing any core boost above 5.1 GHz with C1 disabled using 1.14, whereas at least two would boost to 5.2 GHz using 1.12 with C1 disabled.

    Edit: I should note that I’m using a Z690 Classified.

    A quick fix could be disabling cpu C states all together. Higher idle power draw but should fix the boosting problem.

    C1 is the only C state with an option in the BIOS, and disabling it does allow the cores to boost. Although, C1 is usually on by default for most motherboards, so I’m not sure why having it on with the Classified inhibits stock functionality of a 12900K.

    I installed 1.14 and also saw max boost of 4.9GHz on my 12900k at default settings. Also, I am currently trying to figure out if it's my cpu (as I'm getting regular 71 post code hangs), but I am crashing when trying to launch cpu-z when it gets to the spd loading step and also crashing in Intel xtu when it tries to read the V/F curve at default settings.

    6Q6CPFHPBPCU691 is a discount code anyone can use.

    Ha! I’m not laughing at you but at the <insert expletive> show that is Z690 & DDR5. I’ve had crashes when loading CPU-Z or Aida64 when it attempts to read DDR5 memory, specifically SPD. Heck, even 3DMark has crashed on me when loading at the “Scanning SystemInfo” stage. I’ve experienced that across several Z690 motherboards including the Z690 Classified. Even EX1 crashes every time I click “Default.” I can’t say I’ve landed on POST code 71 though, only 7F and 04. 7F is from when I was troubleshooting my RAM when I thought yet another stick was dying, and attempted to troubleshoot by inserting a single stick into slot 1 before I read the manual. It states that slot 2 needs to be populated foremost. 04 is a bit of a mystery, as it’s only presented itself when trying to OC my 12900K and the system restarts after it crashes.

    @EVGATech_LeeM
    Unfortunately I found the next bug - as soon as you activate the OC for the memory (e.g. XMP1) we have the same situation as with BIOS 1.12 -  the CPU does not clock higher than 4900/3700 MHz. As soon as the memory set to AUTO you will get higher clock rates like 5200/3900 MHz.

    Could you please check this?
     
    Many thanks in advance.

    Using 1.14, could you try XMP1 enabled, C1 disabled, and tell me what your core frequencies look like? I had to switch back over to 1.12 because with 1.14, I noticed that P-cores 0-2 boost up to 5.1, and the same goes for core 4. Core 3 is the only one that reached 5.2, and cores 5-7 never went above 5.0. All E-cores boosted to 3.9.

    It’s seems like 1.14’s auto setting for the cores has a per-core OC setting for the P-cores, but still requires the C1 state to be disabled to reach it. For the time being, I’ll continue 1.12 with C1 disabled since that’s the only configuration that allows for my 12900K to run at its rated spec.

    I'm using 1.14 on 12900T and so far everything is as it was, but I've yet to see 4.9 GHz, since I've seen only 4.8 GHz, but on 1.12 I've also seen 4.9 GHz.

    I'll report back within 24 - 48 hours as whether I have the clock, whether my average clock increased, or decreased, etc.

    Btw. nice to see them new updates rolling out!

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

    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.

    @ObscureEmpyre ,
     
    this is my 1st EVGA MOBO too...
     
    i understand “CMOS checksum error”. (because i read the manual multiple times before and after assembling and have tried following as much as possible, on the z690 forum threads.)
     
    in case other(s), nubs like me, want to know; Page -50- of the manual says,
     

    First Boot

    BIOS Update

    When you power on the system for the first time
    (or after a BIOS update/reset) it may take a little
    longer than expected, and follow with a warning
    message on the screen reading “BIOS checksum
    error”. This is completely normal.
     
     
    But "new CPU installed/found" is showing up more than one time for some after updating BIOS and how frequently?

    Thanks for pointing that out. But yes, the new CPU found or memory changed message has popped up a few times for me during the short time I was using 1.14, and it seems others have experienced the same.

    @ObscureEmpyre,
     
    k ty
     
    v.1.14 fixed CPU-Z issue. so that's a plus. with wat ppl are posting, v1.15 should be a worth trying for me...  especially if my cores boost beyond 4.9GHz too.

    @ObscureEmpyre,
     
    k ty
     
    v.1.14 fixed CPU-Z issue. so that's a plus. with wat ppl are posting, v1.15 should be a worth trying for me...  especially if my cores boost beyond 4.9GHz too.
     

    Fixing the CPU-Z misread is definitely a plus, but I’m more interested in seeing a fix for the incorrect frequency boosting of the P/E-cores, so I’m also looking forward to 1.15 if that addresses this issue. For now, try disabling C1. Although, I’m still not sure why disabling it is a must for correct boosting. I’ve always disabled it for manual overclocking, but I’ve never had to for a chip to work at its non-overclocked rated spec.

    I can't even open CPU-z without it crashing the system at the SPD reading step. Also, if I open Intel XTU and click the button to have it read the V/F curve, BSOD instantly. BIOS has CPU at default settings. I just put a ticket in with EVGA to see if they have any ideas or suggestions and bought a g6900 to do some further testing with the classy to try and get some +/- data for CPU vs mobo. I don't know right at the moment if my CPU is failing or the motherboard is failing after hearing so many of you having about half the same problems I am. The only one I have that I can't find anybody else having is the POST code 71 issues.

    Honestly, I think it’s DDR5 on the whole that causes a system to crash when attempting to read SPD using something like CPU-Z. A crash from that is something I’ve encountered across multiple motherboards and DIMMs. Sometimes CPU-Z, Aida64, etc., will load successfully, but it’s a crapshoot. I’ve been saying this whole time that upgrading to the Z690 platform has been one of the worst headaches I’ve endured in my 25~ years of PC building.

    If that was the only issue I had, I'd probably just not open those things. They're just easy to reproduce issues that happen literally every single time now. I can't overclock at all and it isn't even stable at stock settings. I don't want to completely derail this thread so I'll leave it there, but I agree that z690 has been incredibly frustrating so far.

    It's called C States under the advanced CPU menu.

    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.

    "CPU C States" (i thought that was it. i took a pic of it on my phone.)
     
    so after i disable will there be several options?
     
    if so which should i choose?

    Enhanced C1, otherwise known as C1E, is the only C state with an option for on/off with the Z690 Classified. The CPU C States option of Auto seems to have it on by default. Otherwise, you can enable C state control solely to disable C1 since that’s the only C state option this board/BIOS seems to offer. I imagine changing the CPU C States option from Auto to Disabled has the same effect.

    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

    @ObscureEmpyre ,
     
    ty great explanation! ty!
     
    @EVGATech_LeeM,
     
    i luv permutations. ty!
     
    so to get to what i've been using... but with boost on P-Cores 5.3GHz 5.2GHz... option one ("C-State Enable + Enhanced C1 Enable") sounds logical for me (v1.03 BIOS).
     
    i'll report back asap.
     
    Edit: so far so good. Just booted back in and P-Cores are all approaching 5.2GHz. i'll play a game for 45 min and bb.
