[Official] ASUS X99-E WS Owner's thread - Page 378

post #3771 of 3872
Issue pertaining to the Samsung 960 pro.

I contacted Asus support with the following message.

I am having problems with my Samsung 960 pro in the M.2 slot. While changing some settings in AI Tweaker sometimes causes the drive to disappear in the BIOS. This Also occurs if I disable CSM. I have recreated the problem numerous times. The only way to resolve the issue is to clear the CMOS. I have read that other people online have had similar issues. Is Asus going to address this issue? This drive is on qualified vendors list.

I am awaiting response but not holding out for a resolution.

To quote the Airforce officers in the Nuclear missile silos from the movie The Day After " Confidence is high".
Not sure if it really applies but it sounds cool saying it.

jsutter,

sometimes, my X99-E WS says´"overclocking failed" (maybe once a month or less). In this case my 960 Pro also seems to be not visible in the bios. But I do not have to clear bios. The drive is still there in one of those numerous submenus. I cannot tell you right now, where exactely, but it´s definitly still there and from there you can put it back in the boot selection (or whatever it is called), (where you tell the bios, from which drive to boot). So if you know, where to look, you can fix the problem within seconds.

Its not just this board. It seems to be a common issue on X99 when overclocking. If I had to venture a guess the drive is just very sensitive to minor fluctuations in the baseclock's. Slightly out and the drive throws a tantrum. Doubt we will see any fix or resolution for this tbh as its not just exclusive to the E-WS.

Sounds more like a firmware update from sammy, instead of Asus. FYI, my 950 Pro in M.2 slot with a 6850K at 4.4 has been very solid. To say, I have never had an M.2 related issue when OC'ing.

My timing is impeccable. Samsung released a new firmware update today which is NOT listed on their site. The update shows up im Magician. Painless process.

And for those running Windows 10 the creators update is now downloadable through the media creation tool. Last night I downloaded a updated creation tool which installs the latest update. I did a clean Windows install this morning due to the size of the update. Their are a significant amount of changes. Especially in Windows settings. My system was already, fast but opening programs is NOTICEABLY faster. Especially Edge and Chrome. I have been getting random lock ups which I have been unable to pin down, so hopefully this fixes that.

Hoping that they release a new firmware to address some issues with the 3.1 version.

I have a question pertaining to RAM. Has anyone here been successful with speeds beyond 3200MHz. I understand that speed is dependent on the CPU but I have a 6950x, and I am about to upgrade from my DDR4 2400. If you have been successful or not I would like to hear from you.

Thank you.
