    You totally misunderstood it's not saying anything about X299 it's the fact their Six cores get beat down by a 8700k and pretty much my previous 6850k was still beating it in single thread so i mean that is what i am saying

    If you didn't go for the 7900x you would be pissed as shyt trust me when i saw the comparisons it was almost looking at a rebrand

    Bottom line anything below a 7900x shouldn't even be considered on a X299

    My thermals are no where near what you guys have been seeing but i agree it's a Hot Mother in any kind of condition lol

    Since I'm getting a Samsung 960 EVO NVMe SSD, PCIe 3.0 512 GB to replace my client version Samsung M.2 MZVLV512 called PM951(hopefully friday, but the beginning of next week at the latest, with the rest of my order, except the CPU), I just checked if there is an easier way to be able to boot into my Macrium Recovery USB without having to make changes in my MSI BIOS.

    And found out if I just shut off MSI Fast Boot from the system tray, and shut off Fast Startup in Power Options, F11 to select boot disk works(and sees my M.2 drive too, as Windows 10 PE also has the driver).

    As the Maximus X Hero supports two M.2 drives, I'll use my old one for my Hyper-V virtual machines.
    Right now I have them on a 1TB 850 EVO and they respond pretty fast, but...
    When I can put them on a M.2 PCIe drive?

    At first I was thinking about using it as a storage disk for my system images, and then when needed, the restore would just fly, but then decided that the 10-15 minutes restoring from the 7400rpm HDD wasn't so bad.
    Plus how often do I need to do that?
    Since Windows 10 RTM'd, I only need to recover three times, so that would be a waste of a powerful disk, to me at least.

    I have all my libraries, also on the 1TB 850 EVO, but putting them on a M.2 would have no noticeable speed improvement, so VMs it is.

    Cliff, you could just run shutdown /r /fw /t 0 from an Admin CMD prompt.

    Why?
    I want to make sure I can do this without booting into Windows, as I'll need to eventually reformat the old M.2 using Gparted, so I can use it together with the new one.

    Hi,
    I might be exchanging my board tomorrow
    Upping for a mark1 or prime-a :/
    Mark2 just isn't acting like it was anymore
    Flashed back to the original bios and flashed to the newest
    Reseated cpu/ mem/ gpu
    Now just at default and saved the basics rgb crap off/ fast start and secure boot off/ fans on turbo. F10

    Deal was some settings saved to a profile are not sticking anymore
    Not sure if it will happen again haven't saved to a profile yet :)
    Will in a few though.
    Cheap board I knew once I opened the box.

    Strange that saved profiles were not sticking. Of course you know that when you flash bios saved profile settings are toast.

    I think the Mark2 only has one bios chip?

    Hi,
    Not sure about the bios chip but yes resetting the profiles flashing is the only way I know of doing it ?
    Not all settings were being retained
    RGB seemed to always kicked on
