BOOT error WHEA on idle, 12700KF

Hi,

I've been getting WHEA errors that WinDbg is telling me are BOOT errors. Strangely enough, this only happens while the system is idling - I've never had this happen while using the system. Every error has been accompanied by the system being unresponsive - no bugchecks or anything weird, the screen is just completely frozen.

The issue started happening after I installed new RAM (DDR4, XMP profile 4000mhz 19-19-19-39, ran in Gear1 CR2).

The CPU is overclocked a little bit (so it hits 5 allcore, I can provide detailed info if needed) but that shouldn't matter on idle, correct (using the Balanced power profile on Windows 11)?

My motherboard is a MSI PRO Z690-A DDR4 and the RAM model is Patriot PVS416G400C9K.

Here's the WinDbg output for the latest crash dump:

At this point I'm beginning to think it's the PSU being faulty (Fractal Design Newton R3 800W) - I've been having complete system shutdowns in heavy CPU+GPU workloads with no bugchecks/whatnot.

 

Attached is the System Support Utility log.

Hello a999,


Thank you for posting on the Intel communities. In order to have a better understanding of the issue, please share with us the following information: 


  1. Have you tested a different RAM?
  2. Have you tested a different motherboard?
  3. Have you tested using only 1 DIMM of RAM?



Regards,

Hi,

I've tried different RAM and didn't have the issue - the current RAM shouldn't be defective, I've tested it using TestMem5 several times. Haven't tried a different motherboard/using 1 RAM stick.

Hello a999,


Thank you for the information provided, in this case, please try testing the RAM modules in another system and check if the issue persists. 


Also, please try using only 1 DIMM of RAM and check if the issue persists.

Hi,

 

tested the DIMMs in another PC - no signs of such instability. Haven't tested with 1 DIMM, though.

Hello a999,


Thank you for the information provided, please also test using 1 DIMM and let us know if the issue persists. 


Also, please share with us the model of the RAM that works fine with the system.

Hi,

The memory that worked fine was the Corsair Vengeance Pro 3600mhz CL18-22-22-42. Could the tighter timings/higher clocks of the new memory be the issue?

Hello a999,


Thank you for the information provided, in this case, it is important for you to know that the maximum DDR4 memory speed supported by the processor is 3200 MT/s, please try setting the RAM to that speed and test the system.

Hello a999,


We have not heard back from you, so we will close this thread. In case the issue persists, our recommendation is to check compatibility between the RAM with the other components of the system since this could affect its proper functioning, for this, please contact the ram manufacturer and check with them for any compatibility issues. 


 If you need any additional information, please submit a new question as this thread will no longer be monitored.
