[Official] ASUS X99-E WS Owner's thread - Page 220

post #2191 of 4083
I have the Samsung 950 Pro 512GB installed in the M.2 lot. On motherboard BIOS 1301, and now also 1302, I have been unable to boot from the 950 Pro; the drive does not appear in the boot options,. The Advanced BIOS tab for NVME does not let me configure anything. Note that Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit can see the drive and I can use it as any other normal storage device.

Hi!

I'm unable to be a fan of my X99-E WS.
G.Skill insists that setting XMP profile shouldn't change any other settings, but I've assured G.Skill that after changing it to XMP, many other settings change, and whether I change them back or not my system fails to boot.

I am defeated.
EZMode manages to boost the ram to about 2430, but it isn't right.

I have the manual, and the internet at my fat fingertips. I can't find an adequate resource to use as a proper guide. I'm not even sure if my CPU is set right in the BIOS.

Where do you guys find your info?

5930K 3.5GHz
X99-E WS 3.1USB
32GB DDR4-3000 (at 2133)
NVidia Poseidon GTX 980 ti 6GB
Samsung EVO 850 250GB
Samsung EVO 850 500GB
Hyperkit Intel 750 2.5" SSD 400GB
Corsair 1200w

Losin my mind.

An XMP profile will often make numerous config changes, and personally I find it more trouble than it's worth. Auto-config OC utilities also make some odd choices. I've always found it easier to do everything manually. It definitely takes longer, but it's simpler, problems are easier to diagnose, and the results are usually better. If you're methodical, and change one setting at a time a little at a time, you will know which change caused a problem.

I've had excellent OC results with this board. The default settings are very conservative, but remember it's marketed for workstation duty. It has all of the power regulation and overclocking options you need to make your system run very well, and it handles heat better than most. It's a great board imho. Seriously, XMP and EZ-OC profiles are probably causing you grief, not the board.

WARNING: I'm getting SLOW transfer speeds with the Samsung SM951 (AHCI) and 950 Pro (NVME) when using PCIe->M.2 adapter cards, even ones that are PCIe 3.0 x4 compliant.
Whereas, they work at full speed using the motherboard m.2 slot. And Intel 750 cards also run at expected speed.
I'm using the latest 1302 BIOS.

This is exactly the same problem described here:
https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?70996-Problems-with-SM951-Addonics-adapter-on-X99-E-WS

The two adapter cards I used were:
Lycom DT-120
Bplus M2P4A

Here are the nerfed transfer speeds:
post #2195 of 4083
JUNK. I installed the 950 Pro in the M.2 slot and I'm also getting SLOW transfer rates!!!



To compare, this was the SM951 AHCI 500GB in the M.2 mobo slot:


Update: I suspect that the 950 Pro is heat throttling. If I start the ATTO benchmark at 4MB and up, I get full speed. Will report back.

Thank you.

I can't get my 3000 ram to run at anything other than 2133, or EZMode's 24xx -- because I do not know how, and I'm trying to find a resource to learn from. I've attempted both with and without EZ-OC methods, and have no intention of ever using EZ-OC again. I've reversed every change XMP settings made save for the ram settings itself and attempted that. I've tried to do this through deductive reasoning and have made zero progress, and ran out of ideas.

MB manual removed, There has to be a better resource to learn how to configure 5930K and DDR4-3000 ram in Asus UEFI BIOS version 2.16.1242. Something. Anything.

Ok. I may have a solution regarding this issue. A while back I was having what sounds like the exact same issue. It got to a point where I couldn't open any programs on my SM951 and my system would freeze. I reinstalled my drivers and RST software. This did not fix my problem. Now your results may be different, but my problem started while I was in the process of sending one of my 980's back to EVGA for upgrading. I just removed the card and didn't think to reinstall the GPU drivers for the 2 that were remaining. A few days later after I was about ready to stop using my 951, I updated the Nvidia drivers and surprise surprise, my 951 started working again.

So just one more thing you'all might try is reinstalling your GPU drivers. I have frequently noticed that whenever I have a particular hardware issue, the GPU drivers are often the reason why. A clean removal and reinstall wouldn't hurt.

Update again: Okay, problem solved. It was heat throttling. I leaned up a small fan on top of the 950 Pro and re-ran ATTO. Not too shabby.

I have a basic guide for you, and anyone else interested. I would recommend flashing BIOS 1302 first if you haven't already (assuming you have the older non-USB 3.1 board). 1302 has been good to me.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Start by re-setting your UEFI settings to the factory defaults under "Exit" in the main menu "Load Optimized Defaults". Next, make sure the board's TPU and EPU switches are off (far left position). Don't use TPU/EPU if you're making manual adjustments.

Boot:
Fast Boot: Enabled
Setup Mode: Advanced Mode
Option ROM Messages: Keep Current
Change the CSM (compatibility support module) setting from the default Auto to Enabled.
Set the Boot Device Control to UEFI and Legacy OpROM (default).
Change devices to UEFI Driver First (default is Legacy OpROM first).
Set your boot disk as the first boot device; you can change this later. You'll be rebooting a lot now and this shaves off a few seconds each time.

AI Tweaker:
Work on the CPU and cache first, the RAM later. Keep CPU Strap and BCLK at 100. This enables Adaptive VCore, which is best for 24/7 OC. Do increase CPU Input Voltage to 1.925 V (up to a Max of 2.050 V). The default (1.800 V) is far too conservative for a good OC.

*** Don't assume that higher voltage is the answer to everything. High voltage can introduce instability on its own ***

AI Overclock Tuner: Manual
CPU Strap: 100 MHz
Source Clock Tuner: 6 Ohm
PLL Selection: LC PLL
Filter PLL: Low BCLK Mode
BCLK Frequency: 100.0
Initial BCLK Frequency: Auto
Asus Multicore Enhancement: Disabled
CPU Core Ratio: Sync All Cores
Core Ratio Limit: Start with 42 here and increase one step at a time. When the boot fails, add a little more + VCore offset. When modest VCore increases don't let you boot, you've found your limit. Back down one step.
Minimum CPU Cache Ratio: Auto (leave on Auto or cache freq will not throttle normally)
Maximum CPU Cache Ratio: Ignore this for now; deal with core first. Once that's done, start with 38 here and increase one step at a time as above, adding voltage a little at a time. Don't expect to get this as high as core: 200-400 MHz lower is normal.
Internal PLL Overvoltage: Disabled
BCLK Frequency / DRAM Frequency Ratio: Auto

CPU Cache Voltage: Offset Mode (not adaptive -- adaptive is good for core, not for cache)
Offset Mode Sign: +
CPU Cache Voltage Offset: Start with 0.250 V up to a maximum of 0.275 V as you increase the maximum cache frequency
CPU System Agent Mode Sign: +
CPU System Agent Voltage Offset: Leave on Auto for now. You *will* have to adjust this when you OC your RAM. When you OC RAM, start with + 0.080 V here; go up or down in 10-15 MV steps depending on your RAM. Usually more is better, sometimes less is better. It depends on the RAM kit. SA voltage is important but tricky; be patient with it.

Once you have CPU core and cache done, try to OC your RAM. But first, apply these settings in DRAM Timing Control:

DRAM Timing Control
All timings Auto (for now)
DRAM Eventual Voltage (CHA, CHB): 1.350 V Max
DRAM Eventual Voltage (CHC, CHD): 1.350 V Max
DRAM CLK Period: Auto
Memory Optimize Control: Enabled
Enhanced Training (ALL): Enabled
MemTest: Disabled
Attempt Fast Boot: Enabled
Attempt Fast Cold Boot: Disabled
DRAM Training: Enabled
DRAM SPD Write: Disabled

Leave all timings on Auto for now; they should increase as the frequency increases.

In AI Tweaker, increase the RAM frequency a little at a time and adjust the System Agent voltage offset as you work. When a frequency increase fails, try more SA offset, then a bit more still, then less, and see if it boots.

Once you find your frequency, you can return to DRAM Timing Control and start playing with the primary timings if you like. Be methodical: only the primaries, only a little at a time. Don't play with second and third timings unless you know exactly what you're doing.

That should get you started.

Thank you.

I've gone about it manually setting things but it still fails to boot unless 2133.

I've had this new rig since the beginning of October, and I've made no progress.

My goal remains getting my CPU configured properly, and my RAM configured properly. Currently, my CPU works (but I have no reference to know if it's set right) and my RAM works (albeit at 2133, not 3000)

What baffles me is that there're no video guides, not like there are for the ROG boards. Nothing for our BIOS.

I've never been this stumped.

Thank you Fraggy. I do have the 3.1 USB board. As soon as I get home I''ll check this out. I was just on my way back to here to link an overclocking guide for 5930K for ROG boards in the hopes that it would be useful in overclocking an Asus X99-E WS. I have the 5-way software they mention, but every attempt to find a how-to video shows outdated versions with different options than the one I have. I hate .. hate .. HATE when they do that.
