Brain29 for the ZE I very cheaply dipped a sensor into my water and tapped two to the sides of my chip and would use those for temp controls for all my fans set in bios - most of my issues went away

-- since there are so many temp sensors on the thread-ripper chip for some reason every other uefi seems to grab there own node or fail to see a node

im now playing with the corsair commander pro for all my fans as a controller (it was on sale for $20 bucks) they both have there faults software wise but the icue seems more constant but with less options

pretty sad how buggy the bells and whistles have been on this board since there the same stuff on all the other boards I like paying for things that don't work

I've owned C6H/C7H/ZE/ZEA, all the boards have controlled fans/pumps, all use the same Super IO chip; ITE8665E. I do a lot of testing of length, various loads and rePOSTing board, etc.

OP contains information as to why this happens. Besides monitoring tools even apps like Aura access Super IO chip from what I can tell, for example it has a temperature based profile which can only work if it's gaining the data from sensors which the SIO accesses. So I'd say can't back on SW and see which is the one causing these issues. Prior to even ASUS WMI coming out on all boards mentioned I had no issues as didn't use SW which could send SIO whack.

I also have not had the ZEA get stuck at Q-Code: 00. Yesterday I spent virtually whole day entering UEFI tweaking settings to gain 3400MHz C14 1T. Only issue I had was Kahru RAM Test failing, I had no POST issues/fan issues, etc. As stated in ZEA thread perhaps share data on config of FW/HW/SW used, you may gain a better insight.

AllenG No misunderstanding, the problem stems back to the pwm controller going into whack mode whenever it wants. Everyone tries to say it's triggered by different things, which is bs. It just does what it wants, when it wants. I've seen problems from cold boot (getting stuck in different portions of the init), sometimes it would persist for periods of time. It's very random. The board wants to know that its not overheating, so it needs to know something is spinning. When that pwm controller doesn't initialize properly it doesn't know what to do. Sometimes the temp sensors even get stuck because of the issue, which really causes havoc especially if the sensor got stuck at a high temp... Happened most often on the VRMS, would cause stuck in init issue trying to "cool" itself down.

BTW, the only way i found to get it out of stupid mode is to pull the power all together and let it drain off, then pull the battery too for a few. I will say this gets annoying though, especially if your board decides to do this often.

Hopefully this helps. Pardon my french, i don't care if i get reprimanded for it... but 110% **** ASUS. If you can still return board and aren't locked into waterblocks or something i'd seriously advise to go with an Asrock or MSI board, even if they are less superior in certain aspects.
hey sorry i think you misunderstood... my fans are working fine when board is working. It's when the board is "stuck" on 00 sometimes on initial boot everything works on max speed .. all fans, pumps, vrm fans etc.

gupsterg I did not make that change on either board, my settings for that are as they would be for UEFI defaults.
