Now that I have successfully over clocked to 4.7 at 1.32V I would like to set it to adaptive, but when I do the voltage spikes to 1.5 under load. That is a problem and I'm guessing has been addressed in newer bios versions. So instead of fixing the issue, they avoided it completely.

The adaptive issue has been resolved in later BIOS versions. But could you answer my question?

Sorry for not quoting you in it earlier. Noob here.

The only way I boot into windows after an update is if I hold the power button for 10 seconds to completely shut it down due it its constant idle, then turn in back on again.

Are you able to restart normally from a default bios state if you save and exit without changing any of the settings?

Have you tried just changing one setting at a time and saveing after each change?

After I manually restart it the first time, the "save and exit" will work, but if I make any changes in the bios, the "save and exit" will not work properly.

What's the first setting you usually change?

Even after the processing of the bios update the computer does not restart properly to finish the update.
From auto to xmp profile comes back with an overclock has failed message.
Any clock speed changes will bring up the issue.
Not only changes in the bios, but also when I restart from inside windows the problem arises.
Usually after downloads, but sometimes it will restart correctly
Also, even when I would change only fan profiles in the bios, the problem would occur.

I will update the BIOS tomorrow and fiddle with it more to see exactly when it will not restart and when it restarts no problem.

I used to have the problem with windows hanging on restart, as well as not waking up properly. A fresh install of the latest version of 10 resolved this. My previous install was upgraded from 7 and due to the way windows handled the drivers, many things weren't working as they should.

How did you install windows?

I installed windows via OEM Windows 10 disk with activation code. Unfortunately that installation did not work as it should have. I called Microsoft and they had me download an update on a flashdrive and did a clean install with them on the phone.

Intel RST software installed via device manager so it doesn't install the program itself.

Hm. With my Ram running stable now I am still loosing raid 1 sync on regular reboots. Can I ask 2 more questions?
- do you have write cache enabled on your disks?
- do you have raid activated in the bios?

As you are using software raid on SSDs I guess your answers will be:
- doesn't really matter because write cache is flushed real quick
- no, because windows is dealing with it


EDIT: Do you have fast boot enabled?

Thanks. I've changed that and we'll see if it fixes the issue.
