PC maker offers a potential fix for crashing Intel CPUs

From PC World: Boutique PC maker Falcon Northwest on Wednesday night offered a potential stopgap fix to address reported random instability issues with some Intel 13th- and 14th-gen Intel Core CPUs, such as the Core i7-14700K and the Core i9-13900K.

The mysterious problem has vexed an unknown number of PC gamers for months now, with no seeming rhyme or reason as to the cause, but Falcon has some suggestions that may help some impacted users. The company posted the BIOS adjustments advice to its X.com account here.

“As you know Intel is investigating reports of 13th/14th gen CPUs causing crashes,” said Falcon Northwest owner Kelt Reeves in an email sent to media outlets. “This is a real issue and Intel is aggressively working the problem, but it’s complex and is taking longer than we hoped.”

Intel previously confirmed with PCWorld it has been investigating the situation but as of this week, still had no insight to share as to what the root cause is.
