x99 taking 10 minutes to post

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have an Asus x99 delux with i7 5960X, 16Gb Corsair LPX (2666) and a Samsung 950 pro SSd. Its taking over 10 minutes to boot up to Windows 10 but works fine once its working. Tried installing latest Bios 2101 but no change. Originally tried to install Windows 7 but it took over an hour to boot so upgraded with clean install to Windows 10. 10 minutes is better than an hour but not the screaming fast I was expecting!

Anyone go any suggestions?

ouch, can you see what it's getting stuck on during post? or is it not displaying anything for 10 minutes and then the post screen shows?

That asus mobo should have a display with 2 digits showing the post sequence.
It may give an indication what the problem is by watching that and seeing if any part of the sequence is lingering for many minutes.

Is everything at stock? ie. no overclocks?

Maybe try reducing the frequency of your RAM, bring it down to 1600/1866MHz or something and see if the problem persists.
Possibly try removing a stick of ram (I'm guessing you got 2x8GB) and booting of just one at a time (try both by themselves).

Got any usb devices plugged in? maybe the machine is trying to boot off some external media.

I'm sensing the 950 Pro could be the issue, it has read speeds over 2gb/sec so no way should you be getting 10minute boots. You sure it's setup correctly in the Bios?
