ok i made the changes like you said and it seems to boot a bit faster but now my read write speeds have dropped. it was at 528 read for seq now it is maxed at 494, 512k was 394mb now 364mb and 4k was 31 read and 124write read now 29mb and 88 write

This can be caused by benchmarking too many times in one day. It should go back up.

Gotcha but I only ran it twice today? I did go back and reset the XMP profile and set C1E with offset voltage they way another member suggested. It seemed to help with the second bench test but still lower than my best. Thanks for all your help. I am learning though.

Wait, so are you saying that sometime during the past 2 hours you switched to using an Offset Voltage? Does this mean that you also disabled both CPU C3 Report and CPU C6 Report?

I actually didnt switch to offset voltage it was already enabled with a + sign. I was told by another member that because my CPU was pegged at 3.8ghz all the time when I had the xmp profile for my RAM whichs it never did before. I think C3 and C6 is disabled but I will go check. Now with XMP enabled for the ram to run 1600mhz the CPU idle will step down to 1600mhz.

Also I timed the restart and it seems to be around 32sec.

32 seconds is awesome. You're all good now.

So why did you mention C1E before? Did you disable it or something? If so, then enable it.

No I never disabled it but the only thing I can think of is it was reset after the BIOS update. I just checked and C3 and C6 are set to auto should they be enabled? Now the only screen I see on startup is the megatrends spalsh screen that is set for 5 seconds. SHould I set that as low as I can get it to shave some more time off? I also did disable steam, CCC and logitech programs for starting up as well as some services like bluetooth, parental controls, disk defrag, fax, homeg gorup listener and provider. There are som many services listed there and I have no idea what most of them are or which ones I can turn off.

Not when using an Offset because then the voltage will dip too low while idling which results in a BSOD. Auto or Disabled is best.

Absolutely. I have mine at 1 second.

Thanks for the link and I will adjust that screen to 1 sec. Again thanks for all your help. I am currently trying to download Black ops on steam again since I do not want ot mess with steam mover or junction since I really do not understand it well enough. I am getting some bad download speeds on steam right now. Usually get 2.4mb/sec. Is it because of the warhammer free weekend? and the THQ sale? This seems to happen everytime they do something like this. They never beef up the servers to handle the load. Steam is not good with customer service at all. They say "here have a free trial of this game that everone will download, but because we do not want to beef up servers it will take you almost the entire weekend to download it! YAYYYY FOR US!"
