ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 181

post #1801 of 5785
Yeah. It works just great for me too. Unless I change to the xmp profile of my ram then I get 55 which I do not get with any other BIOS version. They monkeyed with something and they do not say what. Possibly they tweaked some timing that now requires me to adjust a voltage somewhere to make it work better. I dunno. I love it the way it is. Silent cool and fast. My games run like a dream. Tetris, Bejeweled.. Even minesweeper. Going to fire up Zork next for a real workout.

I just got mine last week (Hero). Works great but recently have had 2-4 minute POST time, not OS loading time, just POST. Other than that it has been fine. I am using BIOS 1001. I see others are on 1203 but I do not see anything newer than 1001 for my mb.

Z170 Deluxe upgraded form 0901 to 1203, cannot get XMP to work, identical settings to 0901 and constant code 55. Tried tweaking voltage still no luck, switch XMP off and run ram at 2133 and it boots fine.

Ive read (not tried) upping the DRAM voltage fixes this issue. Was the the 'tweaking' you were referring to?

Installed 1203 to z170-a yesterday. Xmp seems to work here. Ive tweaked vccio and sa voltages.. But the machine booted with them on auto aswell.

On another note: i found out why i had a 4 minute POST time. I had left my asus driver disk in my BD drive. Apparently the last part of POST is checking boot options and it was taking a really hard look at the BD drive before continuing to my M.2 drive.

So... if your POST times seem long, try removing all media from optical or other drives while booting. biggrin.gif:thumb:
