    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    One possible explanation that I don't remember being explored: has anyone confirmed that this isn't just a case of the dual BIOS motherboards unexpectedly switching to the second BIOS and not booting because of that? Some reasons as to why it might not boot on a second BIOS: - BIOS version too...

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Thanks everyone for your answers, I'm going to get an MSI B550 Gaming Carbon since it's discounted right now quite considerably bringing it to the same price as the B550 Auros Pro and I'll keep the latter in its box and return it if everything goes well with the MSI. Such a shame, the B550 Auros...

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Thanks! You mean that it doesn't boot only if you shutdown (S5 power state) previously but if you use sleep then it does wake up? I may have to return the B550 Auros Pro AC then and/or wait for the new AX or switch to another brand. The problem is there aren't many other choices for AM4 boards...

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Thanks for the answer. I'll risk it by opening my still unopened B550 Auros Pro box then since I can't find similar reports for this one (other than people trying to run Zen 3 without updating their firmware). Getting back to the original topic, it's interesting that resetting CMOS using the...

    Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master won't power on - (temporary) solution

    Has anyone experienced these issues on a B550 Aorus Pro AC? Does the issue still happen with CPU C-states disabled? And/or with ErP disabled? I see many people saying removing and reinstalling the CMOS battery fixes it. Does it happen again after doing that? After how much time? How often does...

    Thanks, I didn't know that little piece of PC history, I feel less worried for now :)

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    Does anyone know if the ASUS X99 boards will receive a BIOS update to add support for the upcoming Broadwell-E CPU series? The reason why I bought an X99 board was because Intel guaranteed that Broadwell-E will work on X99 chipsets but now I realize that really depends on the actual...

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    We don't know yet what is happening, other X99 boards do not experience similar problems (as far as a Google Search can tell). It appears to be mostly Asus specific. Even if it isn't and it's entirely because of Intel breaking USB compatibility for older devices, Asus can still do some things...

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    That's something to keep in mind but: - I use only DVI-D connections (2 monitors to the Nvidia card) - there are no boot hangs if I unplug the joystick and I start getting boot hangs if I plug it back (no matter of what port I use and what other devices I have connected) so it's definitely...

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    EDIT: Are you experiencing these problem with stock settings/no overclocking? If not then likely you don't have the problem I had and can ignore what I wrote below. I can tell you what fixed it for me but I can't be 100% you are experiencing the exact same issue (even if it may be USB related)...

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    While it's likely that you will run into fewer USB problems with a Gigabyte X99 board do note that when I searched for "x99 boot hang" I did get a few hits on some Gigabyte models (but still the large majority were ASUS). I don't remember any MSI hits so maybe that's a better _bet_. And I don't...

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    I'm unable to find any links on Google searching for "logitech 3d extreme pro boot hangs" that don't refer to an ASUS X99 board. I also searched for "logitech 3d extreme pro boot hangs z97" and did not find any relevant links. Could you point me to some previous posts about this issue? Thanks...

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    Test Setup So yesterday I spent over 3 hours investigating this, over 100 reboots. First, I established a reproducing scenario: unplug the computer, press the power button (to drain capacitors, etc) plug it back, power it on (already set to boot automatically to Windows 7 x64) if it doesn't...

    Good experience with Asrock X99 OC Formula.

    Thanks for posting. When you say "no USB issues", which USB issues are you talking about? Have you had USB issues with the other boards? Can you describe those issues? Can you tell me what temps do you get for an under load test (say a Handbrake/transcoding test, that would use all 6 cores...

    ASUS X99 Motherboard Series - Official Support Thread

    @Agenesis thanks for your response. Like I said I'm already using the "fast boot: false" setting. Previously I tried "fast boot: true and USB initialization: full". I get the hang pretty rare (maybe 1 in 10 boots?) which makes it hard to reproduce and test different settings but it is still...
