Hi, Could anybody help me, please?
I bought an Asus X99-E WS / USB 3.1 motherboard but I have a problem with RAM and another with a Thunderbolt expansion card.
The RAM memory is of the CORSAIR VENGEANCE LPX DDR4 3200 MHz model. The Mainboard recognizes the XMP mode when I select it and automatically enters the memory parameters. However, the system restarts the BIOS due to memory failure. Currently, I'm working with memory RAM at 2133 MHz, without using XMP mode.
On the other hand, there is the problem of the ThunderboltEX 3 expansion card, which simply does not work, although according to specifications, this should work in the PCIe X16 slot.
Finally, I've to clear the BIOS with CLR_CMOS button.
My system has these specs:
Asus X99-E WS/USB 3.1, with 3302 BIOS
Windows 10 Pro x64 Anniversary
- Intel 5820K 6/12 core processor
- SAMSUNG 950 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD, with 512 GB
- ThunderboltEX 3 add in (PCIEX16_2)
- Asus ROG STRIX-GTX1080-O8G-GAMING (PCIEX16_5), GPU under Bios Tool Shows native x16
- Corsair 128GB, 4 Memory Kit - Black of Vengeance® LPX 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 (CMK32GX4M2B3200C16.
- Corsair AX860 PSU
- 2 Optical (DVD-RW and BluRay-RW Drives)
- 1 SEAGATE 4TB HDD
- 2 WD 4TB HDDs in RAID 1
- 2 OCZ 1TB SSD in RAID 0
Based on the Asus website I was to install the drivers before connecting the add in card to the system, which I did, since this was a new system, I installed Windows 10 Pro x64 Anniversary with all updates and Installed all of the Drivers for Asus MB and Thunderbolt card from Asus website. All drivers appear in windows 10 devices administrator without erros. When the MB BIOS boot, the Q-Code change quickly for resetting the system and then the same process begins again.
My primary boot is 950 PRO NVMe M.2 SSD with UEFI, not MBR. With this I have the MB setting as follows:
- Fast Boot: enabled
- CSM Compatibility is set to Launch CSM: disabled.
- Under Boot\Secure Boot the OS type is set to Other OS
- Key Management:
Boot\Secure Boot\Key Management: Keys are loaded (thinking I should unload these as they aren’t needed).
- Boot Option #1: Windows Boot Manager
When I enable the ThunderboltEX 3 in the Bios I leave Unique ID as is.
I´ve tried both AIC Location Groups: SB(only PCIE_2 slot) and CPU0 NB PCIE Slot.
All other settings are left at default.
The Thunderbolt card has the header connected to the MB and to the card as shown by the Asus documentation.
HELP! Please any qualified engineer. So far I haven't achieved it works and I´ve checked it with different MB slots.
Thanks a lot.
