Swapped my fully functioning 3090 TUF OC, 9900K, Z390 Gigabyte Designare setup for a brand new Z690 and 12900K rig.

After swapping all components over to the Gaming Wifi MOBO and 12900k combo, install WIN 11 and I get thousands of WHEA errors for ven_8086&dev_ 460d&SUBSYS_86941043&REV_02

Swapping hardware back to the old MOBO and CPU results in zero issues so it isn't a hardware failure on my end.

When on the ASUS Z690 Gaming WIFI board and 12900K I get random hangups, BSODS, and straight crashes.

Another Reddit user with a 3080 is experiencing the exact same thing with a different ASUS Z690 board but because he isn't water cooled is able to trouble shoot easier. Turns out swapping the GPU to the gen3 PCIE slot solves the issue. Also removing the GPU completely and running off the iGPU solves it. Manually changing the speed of the first slot in BIOS doesn't solve the issue.

Why would plugging the GPU into the top slot GEN 5 PCIE result in this error? Is it an Intel CHIPSET driver issue with how it is communicating over that lane?

Seems to be a somewhat common occurrence now and using the 2nd GEN 3 PCIE slot appears to be the only solution at this time. So far neither Intel, NVIDIA, or MOBO manufacturers what to recognize it.

are you using a PCIE riser? My friend had this issue with his itx system and the other guy that is posting is also having a riser issue @ gen 4. (if he set it to gen 3 he would fix his issue as well).

If not just manually set the top PCIE slot to gen3. Should solve the issue. Maybe a bios bug - it's not an overall 690 chipset issue-- my 3080 is running with no whea errors and @ pcie-4.0 without issues.

For now I would set it to Gen 3 and issue a support ticket to ASUS.

Yeah it's a mobo bug. Set it to x3 and forget about it for a month, then update bios.

Fixed. I had to disable native power management and ASPM in BIOS. Then I had to disable link state power management in power settings on desktop.
GPU is now running as it should on GEN 4 with no errors.

Update: nope, getting new crashes and artifacts with those settings disabled even though the WHEA 17 error went away.

I put all those settings back for ASPM and Native Power Management. Now back to running at PCIE 3 no errors.

Only thing that works to rid of WHEA 17 error is putting it to gen 3 or turning off native power management. ASPM has no impact on the WHEA 17 error, only Native Power Management turned to disabled. However, turning off native power management in BIOS results in artifacting and lower gpu performance...absolutely crushes GPU performance in 3dmark.

Very frustrating.

Trying MSI board tomorrow.
