  1. Asus support tell me, that they ONLY support the M.2 SSDs, mentioned in this pdf: http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/LGA1150/Z97-PRO%28Wi-Fi_ac%29_USB_31/Z97-PRO-WiFi-AC-USB31_Devices_Report.pdf Therefore only supported (according to Asus) M.2 SSDs in Asus Z97-Pro(WiFi ac/USB 3.1 mainboard are: Apacer: T60 A200-M 128G Intel: 530 SSDSCKGW080A401 80GB Liteon: LITEON-LGT-256M6G-2280-256GB Kingston: RBU-SNS6100S3/128GC-2260-128GB and RBU-SNS6100S3/256GC-2260-256GB Sandisk: X110-2260-128GB and X110-2260-256GB Samsung: MZ-NPD1280-2280-128GB (Support on ISRT 13.1) None of these SSDs are particulary interesting in terms of speed... So, bump for any solution, please?
  2. Well, this new guy should get to work pronto, as Germany was invaded... assange vs zuckenberg
  3. I wanted to install the Win7 on the M.5 Samsung 951 and I failed I tried this: As this method looks very promising, however it fail to work on Asus Z97-Pro (WiFi ac)/usb 3.1 - with Samsung SM951 M.2 SSD. Rufus easily create the USB boot install Win7 Pro drive, no problemo there. However when I use the recommended bios setup, it ALWAYS reset the computer right after the "Starting Windows" message on screen appears. After that, the Asus board tell me, that it adjusted my bios settings to make the problem "go away" (it re-enable the CSM!) and then the install works, however it did not see single drive (all except M.2 are unpluged) Latest bios are now used. Asked Asus support and get funny message, that basically says, that Asus only support following M.2 SSD drives it list there: http://www.mediafire.com/?tgzauc1phpnu21w And the best part of the message is: "Asus do not guarantee functionality of this manboard with other that listed M.2 SSD drives." WTF ... Any help will be greatly appreciated. I tried different bios settings regarding the CSM, but the rule seems to be that disabled CSM lead to reboot The guide is basically about that for the first part of Win install on M.2 SSD drive, you need to: - completely disable CSM (Boot/CSM) - select Secure Boot to "Other OS" - select Key Management to "Clear Secure Bootkeys" ...install Win thru first reboot, then... Secure Boot: Windows UEFI Mode (instead of completely disabling CSM) Key Management: Install Default Secure Boot Keys So it was sound reasonable, however it failed completely
  4. Ooops, my epic fail, lol... Now I finally have the bios updated! I completely forget, that my mainboard is not "Asus Z97-PRO (WiFi ac)", but a "Asus Z97-PRO (WiFi ac)/USB 3.1" and that means, that I tried different BIOSes. Witch end up with the "impossibility to update" the bios. Now I running at bios v2702, yet the M.2 SSD (Samsung SM951) is still "not present" in bios, or for HDD prep program (Mini Tool Partition Wizard Professional) or visible for Windows 7 install: http://forum.hwbot.org/showthread.php?t=150277
  5. My Asus Z97-Pro (WiFi ac) have bios v2303: So I load the new bios (all the more recent bioses anyway) on USA flash: I picked up the latest one (v2702) and tried... ...to upload it, then I get "not a proper BIOS" message: NONE of the bioses I tested (v2401, v2501, v2601 and v2702) worked. All I download directly from Asus site: http://www.asus.com/cz/Motherboards/Z97PROWiFi_ac/HelpDesk_Download/ ...so could SOMEBODY tell me, what is going on?! Next thing - let's try the mainboard function of USB BIOS Flashback - I put into the proper port (page 2-14 "bottom port supports USB BIOS Flashback") USB drive with file in the root directory, renamed by the BRenamerl.exe utility to "Z97P.CAP") After power up, I hold the BIOS_FLBK button for 3+ seconds and I expected to see 3 blinks of the LED and beggining of the flash proces, but ABSOLUTELY NOTHING HAPPEND. The last attempt to flash bios update on Asus Z97-Pro (WiFi ac) was my attempt to boot from USB flash. Formated as DOS bootable device (or DrDOS) and in both attempts failed. Even afer disconnecting both SATA devices (HDD + DVD). So the mainboard works, but it did not see the Samsung SM951 (MZ - HPV1280) M.2 128G SSD is not seen as device in bios or HDD prep programs like Mini Tool Partition Wizard Pro. Any help is need: ...perhaps it is just me, doing something wrong?
  6. GtiJason - I confirm that they are double sided. The s/n numbers are: 154725004434030 154725004434029 So if I decode it properly according to this: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?283666-Figuring-out-G-Skill-s-SNs then: 1547 25004434030 47 week of 2015 1547 2500 4434030 Samsung chips 15472500 4 434030 4xxx = DDR3-1866 8-9-9-24 ...??? So that means 2500, not 1500 ... but still it should meant (according to Don Dan post) Samsung chips. No idea what they are and how they will react on voltage? Ehm, I mean for reasonable 24/7 usage, not for suicide run Sam OCX - The XMP Profile 1 gives 8-9-9-24 2T, can be changed to 1T. Increasing just the clock to DDR3-2000 result in no-post. Bumping voltage to 1.65V (from 1.50) and raising the bar to DDR3-2000 result in Memtest showing tons of errors. (cannot instal Win yet, M.2 SSD is _NOT_ visible no matter what I do...). So looks like that with tight timings we are not going anywhere with overclocking... or anyone have an idea what to change in the ram settings posted above...? What was the most worrysome about this was, that the memory speed remain at 2000 exactly same 21739 MB/s as it was on 1866. So there is no point overclocking, when the speed remain the very same! GtiJason - 2V? That is a bit too much, eh? websmile - Well, it they are barelly made to the 1866 XMP profile, then I'm affraid that "this it is"... Because even plenty more voltage (or I need to increase the termination voltage too, or any other setting(s)...? There are overhelmingly many of them...) did not give me the 134 more MHz... phobosq - That is not OT IMHO at all. The Asus Z97-Pro have a range of voltage for DDR3 rams between 1.20 to 1.92V by a very little steps. Bios 2303 (not lister on the site at all) and I was ATM unable to upgrade the bios at all, because DOS booting flash drive did not work AND every of these bios files that are more recent (2401, 2501, 2601, 2702) are REJECTED by the bios as "wrong file" ... The question is only - does these rams react well on voltage settings... or do they not? And another question is - why at DDR3-2000 settings (despite the errors) Memtest did not show more bandwitch? Not a bit more?
