Sleep/resume issues with brand new Z590 Gaming Carbon WiFi when overclocking

I am NOT using the extra PCI 6 pin power connector at the bottom of the board because the only things using PCI-E power are the 2 M.2 drives and the 3090 Kingpin. I cannot see how this would make a difference to sleep/resume esp when it works fine @ stock settings and this extra power has nothing to do with the CPU or overclocking. Is this a bug in the BIOS or am I missing some setting that needs to be enabled when overclocking to make resume work correctly?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
Have you tried using the extra 6 pin anyway to see if it makes any difference?

I haven't tested the PCI power nor the iGPU yet. I will be transferring my system out of my TT View 71 Snow case and into a LL 001 DW once all my LL UNI fan AL120s arrive. I was planning to do those tests at that time, but maybe this new BIOS will resolve it first and I won't have to.

Fair enough, when the fault happens, what post code is shown on the motherboard debug led?

No code because it doesn't crash. The debug LED still tracks the temp of my CPU like normal as if the system was awake. USB seems to be dead no RBG lights on mouse or keyboard but if I unplug and plug them they light up. My Acer Predator X34 monitor wakes up but with a dark grey screen then after some time goes back to sleep. All I can do at that point is hold in the power button to power off as the reset button stops working and one touching the power button doesn't put it back to sleep like it normally does either.

The debug led also tracks sleep states, but the fact its not showing anything is interesting. Do you have fast start up turned off in windows?

Just tried the new version 1.4 BIOS:
It improved it, but didn't fix it to the point of being useable. Now the behavior is exactly the same EXCEPT after my monitor wakes up, goes back to sleep, it then wakes up again and I can see the Windows lock screen but USB doesn't come back online for another 5-10 seconds after that. So resuming from sleep takes around 30 seconds instead of being nearly instant (~1 second) when not overclocked.
Seems like this behavior change from 1.2/1.3 to 1.4 shows the issue is directly related to the BIOS, but unfortunately not fully fixed yet. Wonder how many months it will take for the next BIOS revision to fix it.

@jimmywsjensen please let us know how you make out with 1.4 and the resume issue.

@laurence1211 behavior is the same fast start on or off

Exactly the same for me with the new bios update. It finally awakes from sleep but after around 20-30 seconds instead of instantly when no OC.

Thanks Jimmy.

Could you please confirm if you are using (or not using) the additional PCIE 6 pin power connector at the bottom of the motherboard?

I'm not using the extra 6pin power connector. I'm only using one graphics card as well. Hopefully a BIOS issue and an update will fix it eventually.

Guess you didn't read the thread or even a few posts above yours...
Actually I did read the thread and the posts above. Those posts were not about the z590 ace so I posted about my experience on that instead of creating a new thread on just the z590 ace in case anyone on that motherboard or other z590 boards have the same issue. But if it makes you feel any better I will delete my post or even better make a new thread (which I consider pointless).

As it is currently written your original post reads like it is telling Z590 Gaming Carbon owners to update their BIOS to the latest (1.4) which does not fix it to an acceptable/usable level just because it fixed the issue on your Z590 ACE. Perhaps if you just edited some specifics into that post it would make it clear that you are only speaking to the Z590 ACE even though the rest of the thread is about the Z590 Gaming Carbon. :biggthumbsup:

I stated that a recent update to the bios on my motherboard fixed my issue. I stated that if you have that issue to see if there is an update available. I never stated that only if you have the z590 GC to do the update because it fixed it. Other people with similar boards might get on to see if any solutions are available and might not consider updating if the only thing they read is "update didn't fix it." So my post was meant for everyone else besides your board. I personally don't like cluttering the forums with posts about the same issue on similar hardware, but I'll make an exception this time. Won't take up any more of your precious real estate on this thread.
