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!

I've managed to lock my CPU at it's turbo frequency using the High Performance power profile in windows. All bios power settings are at defaults.

I have the Z170-A motherboard. All BIOS versions after 1101 were unbootable for me.

Today tried 1602 and managed to boot with it. However if I enable XMP profile with 2 sticks of Hyper X 2666mhz ram, the system cannot post. Enabling XMP with one stick of ram works.

Strange thing is that if I leave XMP profile disabled, the bios is able to detect the correct settings and apply it. I am also able to reconfigure my previous settings and get my 6700K back to 4.6ghz at 1.4v.

Anyone else having problems with enabling XMP profiles?

Thanks, I knew there was something stupid I was missing. I hate windows mucking around with stuff!

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.
Just got back to check. No double boot on cold boot for me (M8H).
But as others have said, if it does double post it should be because current bios requires it for stability.

Just powered up my pc and I was wrong. ASUS logo appears twice. During POST and during windows loading. I'm really sorry about that. Regarding my windows install, I used Sean's Windows 8 install guide and I remember I used GPT.

Ok. Thanks. I really should read the manual more. biggrin.gif

Thanks. It doesn't bother me now since Silent Scone said its normal. By the way RAM is set manually. 2800 @ 1.25v can't remember the timings.

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.

Sorry about that. I was wrong about the ASUS logo. It only appears during POST and windows loading.

You have the 8GB sticks right..?
I would raised DRAM voltage upto 1.25V & set VCCIO to 1.2v & System agent to 1.25V.

Hello

Is the EZ XMP switch set to disabled (default setting)?

In that case then, that is correct. You can disable it in BIOS.

What's the most proper/safe way to update BIOS? I remember an Asus rep had a bunch of steps a few years ago, but i've lost those steps.

USB Flashback remains the most fail-safe method. Refer to the manual for more information.
