Hi. I'm Richard. Just wanted to finally join the forum after I have been looking around and reading and all the help I have gotten from all of you.
Hope to learn more while I'm here. Just finished building my first system and have all the post bugs out and seems to be running great.

Hi everybody, I'm quite new to gaming and PC and I'm a video Editor by trade (moved over from Mac cause they don't give enough hardware for what you pay).
I've saved up and bought myself a G752VL it came with the minimal components as i planned to upgrade it myself buuuuut I've now started trying to upgrade it and cant seem to get it to work properly. I bought a 128gb samsung m.2 950 Pro (supposed to be a fast ssd) and installed the OS on there but it still takes around 47 seconds to fully boot , I'm not sure what I did wrong but I think the SSD should boot a lot faster than that. Also I have this problem where the laptop freezes at random times , never during gaming for some reason , only when i'm doing smaller tasks. Could someone help me to fix the laptop or possibly link me to a thread that has the information to fix it. Starting to worry that I have a faulty laptop and I'm wandering if I should send it back.

My name is Benjamin, 31 years old but i`m not a gamer anymore. Stopped by to check out if somebody of you guys could help me to solve my problem with my Asus board and my SSDs. I`m an overclocking noob who builded last year my first OC PC. Everything was fine until last week as an BIOS update broke my RAID 0. Since then i'm looking for a solution and i thought maybe somebody here can help me.

My name is Mike and am from Holland. I 'm the owner of a Rampage V Extreme. I have inherited this board from a close friend of my who was very sick.
I want some advice from you tweakers. I have a lot of problems with the bord. Is take almost 1 minute to boot up. I know how to build a PC. It has a SSD 850 evo 1 TB, 16 GB mem and a Asus GTX 980.
Is there someone that can help me with the right bios settings. I don't need OC. I just want to normaly use the PC for some simple gaming and browsing. And with that honor my friend. Thanks for any help.

Hi everyone my name is Robert with handle rsbaldassano. I am not new to ASUS, but I am new to the ROG forum. I just built my third system, my second with an ASUS MOBO. This time I took the route of an upgrade, just changing the MOBO, Video Card, CPU, cooler and memory, keeping my case, fans and SSD and hard drives. So my system is now ROG Maximus VIII Hero based with 32 GB of G.Skill Tridentz DDR4 RAM, an i7 6700K CPU, Thermaltak Frio Silent 12 cooler, and a Sapphire Nitro Radeon R9 Fury GPU, I also added an ASUS USB-BT-400 Bluetooth USB adapter as my old ASUS board had Bluetooth and the new one does not. My drives consist of a Samsung 840 EVO 750 GB SDD and a mixture of SATA 3 and SATA 2 drives internal to the box, with 2 external NAS for heavy duty storage. I run Windows 10 Anniversary version on this home brew desktop, and have a Windows 10 mobile phone a Lumia 950 and 1020. My system is running overclocked and stays very cool. I am having an issue with AI Suite 3, as while it was running initially before I reloaded all my software again, it started to run erratically, sometimes starting and sometimes not. So I uninstalled it and then installed the latest AI Suite build and the system immediately started to throw exceptions, mostly access violations and DIP4.DLL issues, so I had to eventually uninstall it after 3 or 4 attempts to reinstall. So I am just ding all my settings in the BIOS in Advanced Mode. When a future version of AI Suite comes out, I will try again. I hope to learn from all of your issues with the same motherboard. My interests are Computers, Electronics, Photography, Travel. I am not really a gamer, but the previous interests require a fast machine that can handle large files quickly. I am retired after 2 careers, one as a LT. Col in the USAF and a second as a defense industry program manager on very large projects.

I'm Mirza and I justo got in the OC world with an I7 6700K, Maximus Hero VII+Strix 1070 OC. Came here to solve some compatibility problems and to get some info about OC.
