I have a Sabertooth Z77 and it has been fine for 2 weeks, yesterday it started taking 1-2 minutes just to boot the UEFI.
(With logo disabled) Power on, blank screen for 1-2 minutes then it all kicks into life.
(With logo enabled) Power on, logo shows for 1-2 minutes then again it all kicks into life.
I have the latest 1403 BIOS.
Anyone with any ideas?
Thanks

@Pedro or anyone else, Did you ever figure out this issue? I can't am not sure why it takes so long to get to the windows screen and I am not sure about the settings in the BIOS that I should change. I am going to try the logo disabled but was worried how to get back in but read another post that you just hit delete at start up with it disabled. Mine seems to flash the Logo three times before windows starts to load. Any ideas would be great.

Have any of you solved the slow POST/BOOT on the sabertooth z77s? It feels like an eternity booting from sabertooth compared to z77 Pro
The new Bios fixed it, the 1059 bios had the wierd double Post screen, the newer bios flashes once then goes straight to OS. Its so quick I have to be mighty fast on the old "del" button to get to the bios screen

I have seen this post before but back a few months ago in an early bios revision.. I am not sure which Bios you are using? 1504 is very fast to boot for me.. sometimes to fast .. tongue.gif

I know these programs stress things to the max but normally you wont even be close to it.. I normally dont even clock this high.. I save an OC profile in the tools menu in the bios for when I am feelin Frisky.. and normal operations for me are pretty stock settings.. I have to work off this thing.. I have given you some good Tools to start with now its time for your own journey to begin with the hardware you have.. should be fun for you.. wheee.gif
as i mentioned before..sometimes throwing more volts at it will not be Fruitful smile.gif

Reporting back for duty!



I did it! Results speak for themselves. Got the Dominator Platinums to 2400MHz pass OCCT, Prime95 and IBT. Did a run of BF3 for about an hour or so and we are golden.



Here are my BIOS settings to achieve high frequency memory stability.

I think you are right! For some reason I thought I was on the latest when I booted up but will need to double check. Doing other updates right now but looks like I have 1015 if CPU-Z is accurate in telling that information.

So, I ended up getting the wrong memory for my system (I needed to have an i7 cpu, rather than i5).

This is the memory I got:

http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=516&c1=&c2=

The cpu I got is the i5-3570K.

Before I took the memory out of its case, I called up GSkill and asked if it would work with the Sabertooth / i5 combo I have, and the tech said nope, not at 2400. He said I could manually downclock the memory to 2133 / 1600 and it would work, but I am a total newb when it comes to manually setting such timings / voltage. I was hoping to just enable XMP and be done with it.

I have no plans to over-clock the system at present, so would anyone here happen to know the correct settings I could use in the BIOS to bring down this memory to a setting that will work with my cpu? Would downclocking be stable, or should I just get new memory?

Also, I spoke with Newegg and got an RMA for the memory, no hassle at all. So I can send it back, get a refund, and then buy the proper memory. It would just take a couple weeks for it all to worked out, while at the moment a half-built system is just sitting in my closet.

If you were keeping that memory you would make your Memory Frequency change as shown in this pic .. That setting is totally adjustable to run at whatever you want.. Man i would at least try it.. but thats me

Currently running large FFT for 4 hrs+ with 72-81 C, I have hyper threading disabled right now as I prob won't do much of graphic design and video work on this machine (other wise it'll probably peak close to 90 C I bet) Does this temperature look okay for this test?

Anyway, big thanks to Hanoverfist for teaching me this far tongue.gif

What should I do now to OC the RAM? wink.gif
