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.
They are NOT going to mention it anywhere since they're claiming that there are no known issues.
I'm afraid that if the percentage of us having the issue is within the normal RMA claim rate (5-9%) they are NOT going to bother dealing with it!
We can just hope that some of our RMA returned boards...
I see that you are on Windows 10 Pro 2004.
I had lots of similar issues (freezing, huge audio delays, etc) when forced update to 2004.
I would suggest going back to 1909.
On second thought, ALL of my issues started after update to 2004 (cold misboot as the most nauseating of them) but this...
Nothing is being wiped with his procedure. You just preventing some first order software on the motherboard making decisions for you which bios to use.
So shut-down and power off the machine, flip the first [SB] switch to upper position, and leave second [BIOS_SW] in lower position.
Think of it (DualBIOS) as some crude software that sits above the actual BIOS which runs like some watchdog counting default (main) BIOS boot failures.
If this failures adds up this software decides to do hard reset and switch to backup BIOS, which should then load with optimized...
cold_steel and all other guys with Master board, are you all using the motherboard in default dual bios mode?
Or to be precise, does anyone experiencing the issue while in SINGLE BIOS mode?
Mine switches are at defaults:
SB: position 1 (lower) - Dual Bios
BIOS_SW: position 1 (lower) - Main BIOS...
Any response from the Stephen Burke (Gamers Nexus)?
Maybe we should try to contact Buildzoid too.
The guy is expert in electronics specialized in PC hardware.
He is regularly getting new motherboards from Gigabyte for his "breakdowns".
Last one was B550 Aorus Master a week ago.
This effectively means that Gigabyte BIOS department is actively working on X570 (and B550) BIOS-es until mid. of July, which leaves us aprox. one week to try to be loud and bomb the GB support with tickets related to our issue.
I'm writing the one as we speak, with concrete questions like:
X670 is probably going to be outsourced to ASMedia (an Asus subsidiary) so I most probably going back to my old and reliable ROG brand ....
Shame we don't have EVGA in AMD ecosystem...
just found out that ROG Crosshair motherboards have 32MB BIOS ROM chip across the X570 range. Same goes...
Mine is CM V1000 which has Seasonic guts for sure!
But my machine is rock stable under any kind of load, rendering, gaming, large files compression, synthetics ...
Also first thing I do when installing fresh OS is disabling Hibernate (and "Fast Startup" indirectly)...
Thanks, are these your modules?
Ripjaws V 32GB 3600MHz CL16 1.35V
Planning to get rid of mine Trident Z RGB, same spec.
I have a hunch that overhead (signalling, electronics, LED power usage...) brought by added RGB electronics on the memory modules are somehow causing all this.
Hi, you should move on to F20b which is now official and resolves lot of weirdos with F20a.
Also suggestion is to flash bios using EfiFlash utility (provided with the bios) from FreeDos and use /C command flag to ClearDMI data.
And report back afterwards please.
So they fixed nothing with rev. 1.1, and I have a fear that rev. 1.2 is the same story.
Out of curiosity, what type of memory modules are you using?
Have a hunch that they are G.Skill Trident Z Neo RGB.
Heads up for all of you planning to update to F20a,
Gigabyte has pulled it out from the support site, obviously something wrong with this release.
Or maybe they are replacing it with new beta F20b?
