Yes. I'll try disabling some settings starting with the Smart Self Test. Maybe that's the reason its double booting.

Already set delay at 0 and its still double booting. I just reset it back to 3.

Fast boot is enabled but its still double booting. Not much of a problem but a bit disappointed since my last system boots faster from cold boot (2500k/P8P67 PRO). I'm more focused on how to achieve 4.6/4.7 since even with 1.375v, it won't pass several minutes of prime and temps are already reaching 80c+. I'll try to post my settings.

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.

Mine says the same and is running as expected. Benchmark it if you are in doubt.

Thanks and +rep to you both. VCore now lowers to .832. Now all I need to do is try 4.6 or even 4.7. Now to the next problems. From cold boot pc shuts down then turns on again and continue to boot without any problems. Is this normal? Also the ASUS logo shows up twice. First during POST then another one appears before the windows logo. Fast Boot is enabled and Next Boot after AC Power Loss is set to fast boot. Both are not much of a concern but really slows down my boot time.

Again thanks.

I used to get the double logo when I had a MBR install. This was separate from the OS loading (no spinning dots) and only happened after a particular BIOS release.

Now I have a GPT install, I only get the logo once during post, and once again during windows startup.

Ahh, setting the Post Delay from 3 - 0 sec was only speed up your boot time by a bit, and not to solve the double boot.

Post delay is not gonna affect the double post - regarding the double pump... how do you have your ram set? defaults? XMP. or manual timings and voltage?

Ok, after some more testing, my R9 280 only works in the x8 slots on the Z170 WS. It does not show any display in the x16 slots, even though the machine boots to windows (verified with a second GPU in the top slot). The card is not recognized at all if it is in the x16 slots, the board seems to have no idea its there. Anyone have any ideas? Works perfectly with the same CPU/RAM on my Gigabyte Z170X-UD3.

I'm guessing it has something to do with the PLX function but I can't be sure, my older GPU's work fine in all slots.

Again thanks.

I used to get the double boot on my p8z68-v Pro/gen 3 Mobo with my Sandbridge CPU.

It was orginally to do with PLL Overvoltage being set enabled or AUTO. I had to use it to go over 4.6ghz. If I disabled it for 4.6ghz then it booted fine. It lasted for every bios revision with my old board. I had to live with it. 4.6 and no double boot, 4.7+ then it would double boot.

I do not get the issue with my current gen board though.

Asus Logo showing up twic is normal. First time is just covering the post screen and the second is the Windows start up screen. If you disable the asus logo you will see you post screen and then the Windows logo. (Thats how I like to have it set, disabled). You can also set the time you post screen will show for.



** Just noticed you said twice plus the windows logo. That shouldnt happen. As deders above suggested you may have an MBR install.

Not quite sure what you mean: "change HDD only to all SATA devices". Currently, I have no HDDs in my setup; only SSDs and they are all connected to SATA ports. One is Samsung 950 Pro and 3 are Samsung 850 Evo. I do have an older ODD also connected to a SATA port. They may be introducing some legacy incompatibilities.

The double power cycle is normal. This is another one of those examples where you (people) need to drop the OCD and use the machine for what you purchased it for. It needs to be done this way so that you personally can make use of the features you purchased the board for (I hope),depends on certain values set and the platform. The system isn't doing it to try and get your back up.

I've owned this M8E for a couple months now, and I still can't figure out a way to set a manual frequency. Things I've tried:

Turbo- on/off
Speedstep- on/off
C States- auto/off
Boot performance- all 3 options.
Windows 10 min proc state- 100%

No matter what I try it keeps downclocking to 4GHz for me at idle. I guess a workaround is to use the 40 CPU multiplier and overclock the bclk, but there has to be something I'm missing to just lock in a manual frequency!

Refer to the manual for configuring BIOS boot settings wink.gif

Have SM951 NVMe for OS and 1x 850 Pro and 2x 850EVO connected here - Don't believe it is a legacy incompatibility issue, more a quirk of fast boot when not set in the manner outlined above...
