Absolutely the same as it happens to me.
The buzz sound can be heard here.
Related, see my post on the link.
Psylor Do you use your onboard audio? Do you have it enabled in BIOS? Do you have anything "electrically conductive" connected to it (e.g. analog headphones on the FP, or active...
Hmm, this makes me wonder if maybe the onboard audio has something to do with it?
This part of the mobo is "crowded" with capacitors.
Also as I recall someone mentioned that when the issue occurs, there is come buzzing/whining sound coming from the area "under the GPU".
I heard that also on my...
I personally had issues with my external USB 3.2 SSD when using if from Front Panel (Phanteks Evolv X) and I've disconnected the USB-C cable from the mobo on my last cold boot brick issue (6 weeks ago).
I thought that my FP USB-C cable is faulty and I even RMA-d it and still waiting for the...
5+ weeks without cold boot brick thing, and counting...
BIOS updates F12g -> F20 -> F21
ErP = ON, Single BIOS = ON, Windows 10 2004 sleep turned off*.
(*There is a theory that mobo somehow corrupts it's power components logic states during the sleep when XMP profile is active)
I use APC SmartUPS SMT750I with pure sine wave output on battery. Happened 3 times so far.
Now that I think of it, there is (big) possibility that first time when it happened (after aprox. 6 months of flawless performance) was after the PC was sleeping during the night.
Since we opt out the DualBios as the culprit, it is clear now that the issue always happens on shutdown process (during or immediately after).
hypothesis: during the shutdown process for some reason motherboard powers down before HDD's fully spin down their plates.
While plates are still...
Sadly, probability is very high that this IS the case.
But we will not give up until all the options are exhausted. 💪
And if we do to no avail, we will probably all play the lottery and RMA our boards.
Maybe revision 1.2 is our solution after all.
