  1. Thanks for that, it really does not seem very fast. Even when opening up folders containing pictures on a fresh start up(only on the initial opening) it is not that quick. The Samsung SSD though performs insanely well.
  2. So I have a Seagate 2TB 3.5inch SSHD and did a performance benchmark on it using Samsung Magician and was pretty disappointed with the result. Surely it should be faster right? Did I install it incorrectly(maybe used the wrong SATA port on the Motherboard)? Or is this the general speed of this SSHD. I know SSHD's work better the more they are used as they cache frequently used files and store them in the flash memory so maybe a benchmark test isn't the best way to gauge their performance but 119mb/s read seems very low?
  3. Try AMD, I think they have a policy of shipping out a cheap CPU out to you to assist in this and you ship it back. I'm assuming they cover the shipping.
  4. Turns out BIOS is resetting its settings when being disconnected from the wall outlet. This includes turning off XMP, ultra boot etc even though they are saved to a brand new CMOS battery that I bought and installed today. I've been told that the BIOS is trying different RAM profiles for the RAM which is taking more than a minute on a pure cold start. After the initial cold boot, shutting down and booting up again only takes about 18 seconds. But I'm still stuck on why the saved settings disappear when disconnected from the wall outlet... Any ideas?
  5. Ohhh I think this is because the motherboard does not recognize the CPU so it cannot enter BIOS... You have a few options. Get a cpu AMD CPU(Ryzen 1000/2000 series) that is naively supported by your motherboard and update the BIOS as detailed on the Gigabyte website and then switch to the 3000 CPU. I think AMD can actually send you out a free CPU depending on where you live to assist in this and then you send it back. I had to go through this also(had a spare 2200G that I used before I installed the 3700X).
  6. You can't access the bios from desktop as far as I am aware. You have to use the Q-Flash function in bios itself and select "update bios" or "load bios". Heaps of quick videos on Youtube show you how to do it. What you have to be careful of is the order that you update the BIOS in as there is about 3-4 steps involved.
  7. I have the same motherboard paired with a Ryzen 3700x. Natively that motherboard does not support the Ryzen 3000 CPU line so you need to update the bios so it can support it. There are multiple steps required to bring the BIOS up to date in this regard. You cannot just download that latest one and be done with it unfortunately. You have to start off with update F31, then F40 and so on. There are some steps in between. It is all listed here: https://www.gigabyte.com/au/Motherboard/X470-AORUS-GAMING-5-WIFI-rev-10/support#support-dl-bios It would help if you have a laptop or spare computer so you can download this updates. Follow the instructions very carefully and use a USB for the updates rather than an internet connection through the BIOS because if the connection fails half way whilst updating, you will brick your motherboard.
  8. When I originally installed Windows 10 on the SSD, the SSD was fitted to the lower PCI slot which was 2.0 and wasn't reaching it's advertised speeds. I then fitted the SSD to the upper slot(3.0) and it now hits its advertised speeds. Could the motherboard be trying to access the 2.0 PCIe first instead of the 3.0 PCIe?
  9. I do have the SSHD SATA cable daisy chaining so it powers the RGB Fan hub also . Could this be a concern?
  10. Windows says I am upto date. I am running an SSHD for storage but Window's is installed on an SSD(no data cable needed). Are there any other cables I should check?
  11. Yes to both(Ultra Fast boot actually). I downloaded Windows 10 off the Microsoft Website and activated it afterwards.
  12. Thanks for the reply. I am running Windows 10 home, 10.0.18362, build 18362. When I originally installed Windows 10 on the SSD, the SSD was fitted to the lower PCI slot which was 2.0 and wasn't reaching it's advertised speeds. I then fitted the SSD to the upper slot(3.0) and it now hits its advertised speeds. Could the motherboard be trying to access the 2.0 PCIe first instead of the 3.0 PCIe?
  13. Hey guys, I'm running Windows 10 with a Ryzen 3700x, 32GB DDR4 3,000mhz Ram(4 sticks), Gigabyte Aorus gaming 5 x470 motherboard(latest bios), Gigabyre 2070 GPU and Samsung 970 SSD. Ultra fast boot in bios enabled. On a regular shut down my boot time is about 16-17 seconds, in which it spends ALOT of that time with a black screen to get to the actual bios. However if I power the whole PC down from the actual wall, it takes well over a minute and 20 seconds to get to the log in screen. Is this normal due to the PC losing it's hibernation data on complete shut down? Seems unusually long considering my RAM and SSD. Any ideas? I do notice the RAM LED being red on the motherboard for a long time before the actual log in screen comes up so it could be RAM related?
