Question Can an old bios allow a I7 13700k to work for a bit but then cause crashing?

Hi everyone

Intel I7 13700K
Asus Z690-P Wifi LGA 1700
DDR5 Corsair Vengence 6000mhz
Corsair HX1000i PSU
2x Samsung 980 pros
Zotac RTX 3080 OC
Windows 11

I installed a 13700k onto a fresh mobo without any bios flashing. It posted and worked normally for a bit but while under heavy loads, my pc froze and I had to hold the power button to restart. This would fix my issue for about 30 minutes then do it all over again. I tried reseating my ram, reseating cpu, clearing cmos, and reseating cmos battery. After many attempts, the computer ceased to post. I tried a different GPU then tried the integrated graphics, no posting.

I read that someone had an issue but it was their bios. COULD THE BIOS ALLOW FOR SOME GAMEPLAY THEN BECOME AN ISSUE LATER? My computer did work without having to do a bios flash in the beginning.
