Make sure it's enabled or USB ports might cut out. You can disable it for windows 8/10.

Thanks a lot!

I have an ASUS Maximus VIII Gene with G.Skill TridentZ memory (part# F4-3000C14D-32GTZ). I tried setting the Ai Overclock Tuner in the BIOS (v1402 IIRC) to XMP but the system freezes sometimes on the Windows Starting screen.

Does anyone know the Manual BIOS settings for a stable system using this memory? I thought I saw another thread where people were posting OC'd BIOS settings for stable memory. TIA.

Update to the latest UEFI revision, if this does not solve the issue you may need to tune the System Agent and IO voltages manually.



Make sure the system is at optimised defaults and select XMP profile. If the system is hanging, visibly look at what the boards Auto ruling is setting and raise this by 20 to 30mv and see if the issue persists.

CPU stock or overclocked...?
Try 1.2V on CPU VCCIO Voltage & 1.25V on CPU System Agent Voltage.

CPU is stock. XMP is supposed to make memory OC easy so I thought I'd try that first. Guess its not so easy.

I'll try out these voltages

XMP is a memory profile embedded in the modules that applies the timings and voltage relevant to that particular kit, it doesn't guarantee stability with every CPU

I've had freezing on the windows loading screen when certain fastboot parameters are set, for a sanity check try disabling fastboot..

I've thought of trying that. Wonder what fastboot does exactly?
