Yes, i'm experiencing also a boot time around 35sec untill the windows login screen appears. The largest time took the UEFI besides i've switched off a lot of internal mobo resources already in BIOS like especially this additional SATA controller for eSATA, internal soundcard and so on. I would say it's about 30 sec overhere, too.
Maybe one can spare some more time with leaving out as much "AUTO" settings inside the BIOS as possible?

What is the option on our motherboard called for CPU Current Compatibility? I am being told to change it but I am unable to find it.
post #2334 of 7108
Interesting, I can't find it in the M4GZ BIOS anywhere. It must come from a different 'board/BIOS system. If you want to explore what it is, I did find some reference to "CPU Current Compatibility" in regards to an ASUS P8P67 Pro Motherboard at this thread though:

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...king-tips.html

It won't help you much with finding where it is in regards to the M4GZ though. Maybe your reference isn't familiar with the M4GZ and is thinking of a P67-based motherboard BIOS setting? Maybe you need to go back to the reference source that told you to change it for further explaination?

Hey, let us know what you learn! Maybe we are all missing something...

Someone who has a 2500k with a Gene-Z should post their step by step settings seeing as how we are the only ones with our motherboards and all of the other guides go out the window.

I run 4.6 air cooling and idle in the low 40 and in the 70 at load which is well below max spec. H60 will give better than this so up to you if you really want to go bigger or save.

CPU Level Up to 4.6
Internal PLL Overvoltage to Disable
Ai Overclock Tuner to X.M.P.

That's it!

Just follow any p67 Asus oc guide. There is nothing super special about this board to make it any different when overclocking.

That's it!
To hit clocks above 4.5 you normally want to turn PLL overvoltage on.

It is missing a setting the "CPU Current Compatibility" which should be set to 140%. I am unable to locate it in the Gene-Z motherboard bios.
