Ah, nevermind then.
No, I imagine he has the TPU too. All Asus boards do as far as I know. I just never use them.
I didn't notice he had his board in other info in his specs and went by what I thought was his purchased list.

No big deal, it was interesting looking it up. That sounded like the area he was describing so I went with it.

You are thinking of TPM (Trusted Platform Module) which is used with Bitlocker. I don't know what TPU stands for but you are correct that it is for automatic overclocking.

Not sure what features your referring too :/
I don't want bit locker to ever get activated even on purpose
Otherwise bios looks pretty complete as is = actually way over my head as it is

I don't really want to go through all of the fuss of secure boot if I want to boot to a flash drive....
I'm guessing that is one of the features your referring too ?

I'm only using 1 ssd at a time with my easy hot swap evo pretty much why I got a 500gb ssd for this install

If I install win-8.1 pro it will also be installed the same way probably on a 256gb ssd but no system reserved partition
I love my hot swap evo
Doesn't look like much but it's awesome

Dang that sounds like it came off a race car
Thanks a lot guys a lot of great help
I got the Corsair link software installed
Got security up and running MSE and MBAM Premium I only have 1 more license left

I guess I should see about asus utilities to check for cpu driver updates along with the chip set ?
The utilities themselves were not on the disk that I noticed :/
Mostly just outdated drivers I'm guessing ?

There is no Secure Boot in Windows 7. It is a Windows 8 feature only and needs disabling for any other OS if present.

We are now past the BIOS era and into the era of UEFI Firmware. It offers graphical BIOS, mouse support, supposedly faster boots (mixed reports), more stability and better security.

While we still have the ability to install to Legacy BIOS, every day we help people here to install to UEFI so they can experience the full features of the new BIOS UEFI Firmware. This is no longer impossible in some cases, or even more trouble than its worth.

What I would not want to do is go without knowing how UEFI performs by comparison. On my rigs I have never gone back to BIOS. None ever require boot repair either, giving me the impression now after 2-3 years that UEFI is more stable.

I would recommend being very careful of Corsair Link. Some report of nothing but problems.
That has been quite some time ago so they may have the problems worked out by now.

Take a look on the Corsair Forum in the Link section.

Thanks Jack yep I just use it to adjust the cpu fans and that's about it if I need to it's on default now so I did switch to balanced just to see if it made any difference and it did speed them up a bit or even them out = balance

Greg as far as I know the bios themselves is indeed UEFI it's just the os is in I guess legacy mode,
When I used 8-8.1 the install with no other drives connected made no difference in taking 8.1 ssd out and inserting win-7 ssd in they booted as if neither knew anything about each other = just the way I liked it,
whether doing it now like that makes any difference I don't know I have not tried

4th of July sells for win-8.1 pro might give me a chance to see because I'll get it if not to badly priced right now at 140.us is way too much 99.00 is more like it and lower is better

You can only upgrade to W10 RTM via W7 SP1 or W8.1 Update 1 (or whatever it is) Greg, if you have the Tech Preview you stay on the Tech Preview.
