More about long post times
  1. what is virus software,and you could have to many program that start with windows itself
  2. the mobo came with kaspersky antivirus 2011. i am going to open the case back up and try diconnecting everything except the cpu,memory and video card and see what happens. i will report the results after im done.
  3. just disable the internet automatic connection on kapersky
  4. its not windows that i am having an issue with its the motherboard posting that takes forever, before it ever gets to that point. also its a new build with 16 gb of corsair vengance memory and a evga geforce 550 ti video card
    1000 watt power supply

    not sure what you mean by that
  6. had the same issue on a laptop for long booting time and the internet part search for a network and scan system all the time
  7. disable the lunch kaspersky internet security at startup http://support.kaspersky.com/kis2011/tech?qid=208281922
  8. ok so i disconnected the hdd, and all the case wires, usb,switches,and audio and clr the cmos and then rebooted and post took only about 15 to 20 seconds and tried to boot to windows in under a minute. so then i reconnected the hdd, the optical drives ( two of them ) the case switches and the audio but not the usb cables for the case and same thing posted in about 15 to 20 seconds, and booted up and running in about a minute and a half and was on the web. so i pinpointed the problem to the usb case wires. when they are connected to the mobo the post times are in the two to three minutes range with the computer being booted up and fully running in about 5 minutes confused???????????
    could that be a bios problem? could the bios be confused on what device to boot from? i went into the bios and specified the hard drive with windows to boot first. i have a 1 terabyte segate sata drive with 3 partions on it 1st partion is 100 gigs for the os. and the other two are for storage both are about 450 gigs.
    dont know what else to do. maybe i should contact asus

  9. I had this problem with my really old motherboard. When I had my USB headphones plugged in, it would take forever to boot.
    Changed motherboards, never experienced it again

    yes i contacted asus tech support and they said to RMA the board so i am sending it back
    thanks guys for all your help.
  11. ok since i last wrote about this board, i recently sent it back to newegg for a refund. my new question is now im in the market for a new mobo. i am torn between two asus models

    1st one is the crosshair V formula

    2nd one is the asus sabertooth

    the big difference for me is the firewire support and thats only available on the sabertooth model which i do own a hdd enclosure with firewire support also. my big question is to you guys is which one do you think is a better board?
    and on another note the crosshair has 4 usb 3.0 and sabertooth only has 2
    and my case has one firewire port on it also.

    just looking for some expert opinions
  12. what is your cpu and give the exact name of the board there are a few of the same some for intel and the other for amd
  13. AMD FX-8150 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ Eight-Core Desktop Processor
    AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8150FRGUBOX

    they are both amd based boards and its just crosshair V formula board and the sabertooth board both are the new 990FX boards with the new UEFI bios

    CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M4A1600C9

    EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  14. btw thats the memory and video card i have also

    hear are the boards straight from newegg

    ASUS Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

    ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS
  15. the sabertooth got 5 years warranty but if you prefer the crosshair you could get this for firewire http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&N=-1&isNodeId=1&Description=fire+wire+card&x=12&y=12
  16. I
  17. sorry about that last post.

    in your honest opinion what do you think is the better of the two. if you had to choose for yourself which one would you choose?
  18. tend to go with the sabertooth
  19. i have been pondering that myself but was unsure of that board thats why i was seeking some advice. i think thats a great board too like i said i have a hdd enclosure that supports firewire but the transfer time is not that fast and i think thats because its a ide hdd inside but that same hdd also supports usb 2.0 some im thinking it might be faster through usb 2.0 and i could always get a pci card that has more usb 3.0 on it if i need more in the future.

    one last question which one of those two boards is more ready for future upgrades?
  20. crosshair is more advanced on technology open two page on you browser one with each board and compare use the asus link for details
  21. i am still unsure which one i want to buy. they are both great boards. im not much of a gamer but i like to play a little here and there. for the most part i am just trying to plan ahead i dont want to have to buy another board again for a couple of years.

    any suggestions
  22. then the crosshair is the latest one if you get new parts in the next few years
  23. thank you
