As my previous post described I can't seem to properly set fan curves in UEFI so I might have to re-install AI Suite.
I don't recall what made me uninstall it in the first place, maybe I just wanted to tidy up, but what's the general consensus?

Personally I love it. I don't have any problems with it. I mainly use it for monitoring and fan curves.

I have not tried AI suite in some time. I try to limit my background software so will no use something I don't absolutely need to.

What issues are you having setting fan controls in bios? I found them very good.

I cannot figure out the Fan Expert 3 for the life of me. Let me explain my setup.

I have 3 case fans at the top of my case which I have attached to the CPU header. This lets me control the RPM from 600-max (1600).
I also have 4 fans in push/pull on the radiator in the front of the case and 1 intake fan above that (so 5 fans total in the front). 2 of the 4 push pull fans are connected to my corsair h100i and are controlled by the link software. However, the 1 intake fan and the other 2 fans of the push pull set up are connected to chassis 2. I'm using 1-3 splitters. Anyway., after running the tuning software it WONT allow me to adjust the RPM for the chassis 2 fans so they're running at 1600 RPM which is loud.

I checked the UEFI and even there I can't do anything to change it. Should I attach them somewhere else?

Custom (manual) curve basically freezes the whole thing when I try to move the 'dot' around in UEFI.

Oh well, I already installed DIP5 but left the rest of the suite be.

Sorry in advance for being off-topic... I've been reading websites about the Intel Rapid Storage Technology setting in the UEFI. Some say it's only for a RAID setup. I've also read where people claim they use it on a single drive setup, and it seems to speed things up. Has anyone here tried it on a single drive setup and know if it yields an improvement?

If I were to enable it to try, is it something I can simply turn back off without leaving much imprint on my OS install?

Thanks, and again sorry for being off-topic.

I have setup several systems using this, although not a Skylake (not sure it is still an option), this is for speeding up a mechanical HHD with a small capacity SSD, this was used mainly when SSD's were new tech and very expensive and small capacity. You needed to set SATA to raid mode, install your OS on the single HHD drive in raid mode, then add the small SSD to the raid array as a cache drive, it definitely would speed up your system, not as fast as using a SSD for your OS and was a good at the time, SSD's are much cheaper per GB and come in larger capacities now that you don't hear anything about this anymore, I am not sure it is an option on Skylake. If it is it will be explained in the motherboard manual

I updated latest 1402 for M8G + 6600K.
I share my thoughts

+boot up faster, shows 6.9s on startup bios time now
+default BCLK is more stable at 100, instead of jumping up to 103
+RAM/CPU Cache OC seems more stable under H264 testing at slightly lower vcore
+disabling SVID cannot boot into W10. I think the SVID option is a relic from Haswell (FIVR) days and it should be removed in future bios to avoid confusion.
+enabling C8 will drop vcore readings to 0v in HWinfo. I like that feature in Haswell. Thankfully Skylake retains that without needing FIVR. (Although i cannot discount that as a bug readings in HWInfo, and Skylake idle 0v vcore really cant follow Haswell without FIVR).

Hi,
I have Asus Z170 Deluxe and intel Core i7 6700k i overclocked it to 4.7Ghz stable i change BCLK from 100 to 125 but in windows task manager it shows 3.6Ghz as maximum speed but cpuz and asus suite shows its 4.7Ghz i disabled Intel EIST and C-states and turbo mode but its still the same in task manager... any idea why this is happen thanks

1. The Bios time feature is a fad which should really be ignored, not sure why anyone would concern themselves with it.

2. You don't seem to understand what SVID actually does, or the the FIVR on Haswell. SVID is the protocol used to communicate with the voltage controller, with it disabled the CPU has no way to communicate to change VID hence why certain voltage states will not work.

But Asus own bios description in M8G, says to disable SVID if you want to overclock.

I disabled SVID in X99, things still work
I disabled SVID in Z170, fail to boot into Windows.

SVID iirc is for the FIVR in Haswell, which works differently.
