Windows 7: Speeding up via the UEFI

Speeding up via the UEFI

Have just finished and installed on my new build.

Basically it is an i5 3570K @ 3.4GHz running 1866MHz RAM -8GB on an Asus P8Z77-V board with a Samsung 830 120GB SSD. I have done most of the optimise tweaks but I am just not familiar enough with the new BIOS to speed that post and splash screen up.

Plus I notice the machine keeps making a notifying noise - a low sounding du du du du dut is there something in that new system that I can shut off or is it another app?

What kind of cpu cooler are you using?

Maybe damping the fans if they touch the radiator, they're emitting an annoying very low sounding when they vibes.

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.

Ok Non sorry for late reply - had top duck out for an hour.

Mate I missed the two refs in the first pot of yours and the second was one I found in Youtube and posted this am on SF.

What I will do is go in and try again at the moment I have to set to default as I really am a beginner at UEFI you will need to bear with me.

Well Non I went through that whole spiel and my BIOS is slightly different in some ways I guess because that might be an older video.

I followed as best I could but the volts on the CPU did not change nor did the frequency of the CPU the RAM was stated in Monitor as 1333 but Speccy is telling me it is running at 961 which I guess is as near to 1866 as it could be.

I don't know my friend if I have a rogue board or what as surely it couldn't be this difficult?

Frankly I don't know what to do. I ma thinking I should have stayed with a Gigabyte board to be honest. But at $215 for this one I can't afford to do much about it now.

Is it the same sound windows 7 makes when you plug up or unplug a USB stick?

Exactly the same only a couple of extra dums.

I actually think I am going to have to reinstall 7 because I can't get any sense out of a Google search on that machine. Emails and stuff are coming through but anything to do with in here or other sites either download in 3 - 4 mins or not at all.

Plus the thing has reset itself except for the RAM speed and quite frankly I just ready for a ceremonial bonfire of the board. I should have gone Gigabyte and more than the basic board too, and I might just wait and do that cos this one isn't worth the grief.

There's probably not anything wrong with the board, might just be a setting that's out of whack. Shoot me your e-mail address in private and I'll send you a guide that will show you what everything in the UEFI BIOS does.
