Asus Z10PE D16 WS Owners Thread - Page 4

post #31 of 430
The nice thing about the XP941 is it has a black PCB so will look less obvious hidden away in the attic area of my 600C. Stupidly I bought green DIMMs which ruins the look anyways but may as well not make it worse.

I have z10pe-d16 + 2x xeon e5-2683 v3 es +32gb ddr4 ecc reg rams,
My problem in temperature of motherbord 104•c:mad:
CPUs temperature 35•c:)
Rams temperature 35•c:)

Why's the motherboard is 104•c !!!!!!mad.gif
Am using ((Speccy ))
And many programs same result.
Can anyone check this place?

Its a misreading, ignore it.

Here is a comparison between mounting the Samsung 950 pro into the on-board M.2 slot (on the left in the picture) versus using an nvme to Pci-e adapter. I am using an inexpensive adapter that I got from Amazon for only C$19 (sold by JZLL)! As you see there is a significant improvement in the seq reads but not as much in the seq writes while random 4k read/writes show almost no improvement. Since this nvme drive has only the operating system on it but no personal data, it seems I get no practical improvement by installing my system drive into a pcie slot over the on-board m.2 slot.

I used Crystal Disk Mark 5.1.2 X64 under Windows 10. AS SSD for some (unknown) reason results in very poor write performance regardless of the mounting option.

Can other people who are using an nvme to pcie adapter, kindly show their benchmarks?I have seen better scores on the net but using other adapters on other motherboards. I would like to see whether using different adapters (brand) can affect the overall performance (on this specific motherboard).

Here are your targets:

Unfortunately the write performance cap is due to it being a 256GB(like mine).

The card you use shouldn't matter to my knowledge as its really just a pass through for PCI messages, the same way you can extend PCI slots to lie GPUs flat etc.

My adapter was DOA so I'm in the process of RMAing it.

Thanks ScratchyBollix for the info.

Aside from the nvme drive, I also have 2 Samsung 850 pro 1TB SSDs connected to SATA controller on the board set up in raid 0 (configured through Intel RSTe). I will post the benchmark result here for people who might be curious. Write performance is even better than my nvme drive.

Anyone know what the lock chipset setting specifically sets?

BIOS -> Intel RC -> Lock Chipset (Enable Disable)

Is that to disable OCing on "K" style processors or something else I should be aware of?

It's not even in the instruction manual I have! Obviously the instruction manual is behind the BIOS updates. Actually, the 3204 bios I have in my system is quite different from the manual (in explaining bios settings). I hope they will update the instruction manual accordingly even though many options are not explained there. Since you mentioned OC, I just slightly overclocked my processors (to bclk 104). I haven't changed any other setting but wondering what turbo charger does. So far, it seems stable.

Asus Update utility under Windows 10, failed to update the bios. The user interface frequently hanged and once in a while, when I was able to click on 'update BIOS', it gave an error message that this is the wrong motherboard!!? It looks like I need to try the old style bootable DOS or, use Flashback.

HI all.
I am recent owner of this board (the D16 WS model) along with dual Xeon E5-2630V4 cpus. Additionally I have installed an Intel 750 1.2TB SSD and a STRIX GTX1070.
My problem is that I cannot get normal 4K SSD performance.
In the previous motherboard that I had the Intel 750, I had around 33MB/s read and 170MB/s write 4K performance in AS SSD benchmark.
After moving the drive to the new motherboard with the dual Xeons, I only get 29MB/s read and 100MB/s write.
The OS is the same in both configurations (Windows 10 Enterprise) with the same firmware and driver for the Intel 750. I am pretty sure that this is because of a power feature in the BIOS (like C-states) but anything that I have changed didn't make any difference.

Any thoughts on which might be the settings for the CPU's in the BIOS that will boost the 4K performance back to normal?

Thanks in advance for your time.
