Sounds likely!

It's why anyone who builds PC's, who are worth their salt, don't leave anything set to 'auto'.

And if you do, always add the minimum + voltage to the auto.

 

(Auto +0.05v)

To be honest, I didnt think BIOS voltage settings were IN a crash memory dump?

I highly doubt they are and even then the layout and location would likely vary enormously from one Bios to another, even for the same board.

 

More likely "dump analysis" and "hey, update the Bios!" are 2 unrelated events.

It's possible the BIOS update fixed an issue with the recent Spectre Intel CPU glitch with Windows.

I think it more likely there may have been an under voltage at low usage issue (no idea why it took so long to manifest unless a Windows update automatically triggered it.  An updated BIOS may have side stepped the issue by raising an auto / default voltage for the detected CPU.

 

Still watching the stability but so far so good!
