[Official] ASUS X99-E WS Owner's thread - Page 349

post #3481 of 4073
Got my board up and running, sadly I only have 24/32 gigs of ram showing up. I want to upgrade the Bios but the website doesn't have a download link lol.

What gives? https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboards/X99E_WSUSB_31/HelpDesk_Download/

Nvm, found it under DOS lol.

Board sadly is defective, one of the ram slots is not working, gonna have to ship it back to amazon and get a refund, sadly every board except my sabertooth has failed to even work right out of the box. Guess I will be sticking to it lol.

Thanks for the help!

I had this problem (slots B1 and B2) and I read it could be caused by over tightening the CPU cooler. So I loosened my water block a bit (on the side next to B1/B2) and I haven't had it return since.

Tried that also, it was even looser than I normally tighten, updated bios as well but that didn't work either.

It might be bad stock from Amazon. I also received a board from Amazon which had 2 faulty DIMM slots. I exhausted all troubleshooting possibilities before sending it back. The replacement they sent me worked fine. It was not due to over tightening the CPU cooler which for me is a water block. That's a rookie move. BTW, my faulty dimms slots were also B1 & B2.

Yea, thats what I also figured, sadly I spent all day putting it together, I am just glad I dont have a custom loop haha.

In regards to the slow Boot ups, I did some tweaks today to see if I could speed things up. Each time I was performing a cold boot. I started the timer at the same time I pressed the power button and I stopped the timer at the logon screen. I am using windows 10 pro with all the current updates. My OS drive is a Samsung SM951 512 GB NVME SSD in the M.2 slot.

The first attempt was with no security keys installed and CSM turned off. Bootup time 56.03 seconds.

Second attempt with no Security keys insalled and CSM turned on and adjusted to my systems hardware. Bootup time 57.50 seconds.

Third attempt with CSM turned off and this time security keys installed. Bootup time 53.57 seconds.

That's all I got now and I will continue again tomorrow.

I really miss my formula extreme and 4790k, used to cold boot to windows in 15 seconds or less. These x99 are horribly slow to post/boot.

Ok a little more BIOS tweaking today in my attempt to increase boot time. I have had a little success. So far my best time from a cold boot to the logon screen is at 38.03 seconds. To achieve this I disabled my memory overclock settings under Ai Tweaker and placed everything in regards to overclocking to AUTO. I also disabled the XMP jumper on the motherboard. Also in the Ai Tweaker tab under DRAM timing control, I DISABLED Enhanced Training for CHA/CHB/CHC/CHD. I also ENABLED the settings for Attempt fast boot and Attempt Fast Cold boot. I remember the last time I attempted to tweak these settings was when I used the NON USB 3.1 version of this board, and by doing so, made some of my DIMM slots disappear. This time all my DIMMS showed up.

Another thing I tried which I read about online was that X99 chipsets have issues with USB hubs. I removed all USB devices minus keyboard and mouse and this DID NOT increase my boot time.
