Hiyya sorry late reply I am using the base Asus P8ZZ7-V board with an i5 3570K.
That noise is intermittent as the Intel liquid cooler RTS2011LC has a fan that is quite a distance form the radiator.
That dum dum noise comes I have now fund when I Google search which just hangs forever sometimes taking 2 mins to get something up in the way of search items - getting them to open is not worth the trouble.
Power up to login takes way too long and loading defaults it takes a about 35 secs but it seems a bit pointless having some decent RAM, CPU, SSD, what I thought would be a fairly quick board if I end up with what is now a very slow machine.
I might have to reinstall everything as this is really madness.
