ASUS North America - ASUS Z170 Motherboards Q&A Thread - Page 360

post #3591 of 5764
Well, Z170 WS is already a bundle of problems. Does not appear to be compatible with R9 280, card works fine on my Gigabyte board but no display/display LED on with the Asus (other cards work fine, just not the 280). Also doesn't seem to want to have anything to do with my SM951 which also works perfectly in the gigabyte board.

Oh no, too much work! I had surprisingly many issues with my rig and I have finally managed to solve all of them (or am ready to ignore in certain cases). If drive startup issues reappear, I might. In order of appearence:

- raid sync issues months ago - hard drive with read error during smart test
- hard locks after 3-5 min idle - ASPM for PCH side of DMI link set (still in contact with ASUS support on that; bios/hardware?)
- rare blackouts during gaming (2 in 5 months) - gpu on just one PSU rail?
- sometimes on cpu/ram load display won't resume - drivers failing when low on ram?
- eventual hard lock on moderate load - instable ram
- raid sync lost on startup - fast boot not working properly?
- hard drive startup issues - 3 drives attached to one Sata power cable?

I will retire now. wink.gif

USB devices, for what its worth:
- 2x Oculus Rift DK2 (Rift Sensors, IR Camera)
- USB hub from display
- Logitech G35 headset
- Roccat Kone Pure mouse
- Roccat Isku FX keyboard

@all: Thanks for your great help, and for being understanding and patient with me being a PITA sometimes!

Sorry to hijack but have you tried elite dangerous on the dk2. It's awesome!!!!

I sold my dk2 a while back but can't wait to get the new one. I'm waiting for the new line of nvidia cards first tho to replace my 2gb 770s.

post #3595 of 5764
I recently purchased a Z170-Pro and have a few questions regarding the Samsung 950 Pro as well. As it turns out, my drive is detected by the motherboard and the Windows 10 setup without any issues. However, I'm not sure if I am getting the optimal performance out of the drive. I know that you have to completely disable CSM mode before installing Windows 10 on the 950, but is there anything else that is necessary?

After I install the OS and install Samsung's NVMe driver, their magician software notes the drive's current and max link speed at 10 Gbps, but I thought the drive and the board supported up to 32 Gbps? Also, I'm getting 180k read IOPS compared to the advertised 300k. I feel like there's a UEFI setting that I'm missing, but I've looked all over the place and can't seem to figure it out. I read online the 3 options to boot are AHCI, RAID, and now NVMe however that option is not available in the SATA selection mode.

So give adaptive mode a try if u haven't yet.

How much volts should I start with? Adaptive is new to me and last I tried it, PC can't even reach windows.

on that MB, select adaptive, leave the Offset on Auto and enter in the turbo field the same total voltage that was stable when using Manual voltage. Make sure CPU SVID is on Auto. thumb.gif

Yeah, I started with what Jpmboy mentioned. Then with trial & error, adjusted til I got around the same volts & performance scores as before. Eg:

Before, Fixed mode 1.360v, LLC5
At load abt 1.360-1.372v, XTU abt 1450, OCN x264 abt 1.74fps

After, Adaptive mode 1.358v with offset +0.002v, LLC4
At load abt 1.372v, XTU abt 1470, OCN x264 abt 1.75fps

Disabling the Fastboot option does seem to fix the problem. In my setup, it only saves a couple of seconds and I'll take that any day for more stable system boot. I've done several cold starts and warm restarts without any freezing though only time and more testing will really tell.
