    NEW PC Build (slow boot, ASUS BIOS)


    Hello everyone,
    I have assembled a new PC.
    Everything working fine, I clean installed windows 10.
    The only thing Im curious about is boot time.

    When I press the power button there goes aprox 25 seconds before screen turns ON and few second after
    I see the ASUS logo with bios options, after that windows starts normal (aprox 50 seconds).
    Did I miss something while assembling the PC?


    My PC details:

    OS: Windows 10 Pro
    Motherboard: ASUS X99-E WS
    CPU: Intel Xeon Processor E5-1650 v3
    CPU FAN: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
    RAM: 4x 16 Kingston DDR4 2133MHz ECC
    GPU: GeForce GTX 780
    PSU: Corsair RM750w Modular PSU
    Drive: 2x 256 Samsung SSD 850 Pro
    DVD Drive: ASUS DVD-Burner 24X Black SATA Model DRW-24F1ST
    CASE: Fractal Design Define R5

    Mine usually takes the length of time it takes me to draw the curtains in the morning. Have you gone through the BIOS settings to see if theres any optimisations you can do? I assume AHCI is enabled.

    Hi swarfega,
    Everything looks fine in the BIOS and the AHCI is enabled too.
    Actually the length of the boot time is not the problem, Im just curious about the first 25 seconds where nothing happens after I press the Power button.

    Hi Magic2007, RAM is set up to Default/Auto or OC/Advanced?

    Yes there can be a period of time between pressing the power button and the BIOS screen appearing.

    Hi Gas, where can I check this, I have not changed anything in BIOS.

    The three items you have circled on your image of your board are all ATX power ports.........if you decide to use multiple GPUs then you will want to add additional power to the port just above the GPU slots......

    One thing to keep in mind with your board is that you will need a PSU that provides a constant minimum of 350w output capablity and it should be stable..

    It is recommend that you use a PSU with a higher power output when configuring your system with more power-consuming components. Your system may become unstable or not boot if your PSU is inadequate...

    Should you decide to use two or more high-end PCIe x16 cards you really should be using a PSU with 1000w power or more to ensure stability......

    I hope I have answered your question about the plug-ins on your board.......I hope you enjoy your new build and the WS boards from ASUS are some great performers.....I salute you on your choice here....

    Thank you Kipper, and yes your reply was very helpful.
    Im happy with the overall performance and my system is very stable sofar.

    Sorry I didnt not understand this:
    "constant minimum of 350w output capablity"
    Does this mean that I need new PSU?

    (Newbie here, this is my first build and last time I used windows was 2006 windows xp)

    Not necessarily........look up the specs on your PSU....

    With the components you have installed now I would think you are fine; however, when and if you decide to take advantage of all the options that the ASUS Work Station board offers you will need as they say "more power".......

    The PSU is in most cases the most overlooked component in the system and it is in my opinion the most important component......stable clean power will enable all components to operate at peak performance and prolong the life of other parts of the build......

    And the RAM sticks are populating the A1 B1 C1 & D1 slots?
