Bios reset seems to have fixed it, well more accurately bios battery removal for 10mins.

Your Tests and Reviews / Aero 15x Review
« Last post by tsmaeglin on Yesterday at 08:17:47 am »
Hi,

Just got my new Aero 15x a few days ago and thought I'd share my thoughts and a few benchmarks.

First off design and build:
The design is nice, sleek, thin, good I/O and not too "gamey" which, for me at least is a huge positive.
The screen is nice, 1080p 15.6 inch IPS 144hz, so great great viewing angles good colour palette, high ppi and good for gaming with the high refresh rate.

Benchmarks with Temps:
I  benchmarked three games all with their included benchmarks. The games were; Rise of the Tomb Raider, Total War: Attila and Civilization VI

Rise of the Tomb Raider
The Aero 15x ran this title on very high graphics preset(the highest one) at an average of 83.45 FPS with a max cpu temp of 89 degrees and gpu temp of 73 degrees. The GPU would usually just below the max mark and the cpu would hover mid-high 80's.

Total War: Attila
I run this one on both extreme quality and maximum quality (the highest and second highest presets respectively) as this is not optimised well and thought it would be good to see your options at a lower graphics preset.
On extreme quality it got 44.7 fps and had a max cpu temp of 90 degrees and max gpu temp of 73 degrees with cpu average in the mid to high 80's.
On maximum quality it got 51.5 fps with the same max cpu and gpu temps but with avergage cpu temps at low to mid 80's.

Civilization VI
With all graphics on max the benchmark fps average was 83 fps with 89 degrees cpu max and 72 degrees gpu max with average cpu temps in mid 80's.

Overall when actually playing temperatures heat up over time with cpu running in the high 80's to low 90's and gpu mid 70's with their respective maximums at 93 degrees and 79 degrees.

Additional info
When at idle the cpu runs at around 53 degrees and gpu 47 degrees.
So far cpu has run comfortably at 3.9GHz on all cores while gaming and gpu between 1400MHz and 1550MHz.
The fan is also quite loud. For me however I don't find this a problem as I wear headphones when gaming.

Conclusion

Overall this is a great, powerful laptop with my only complaints being the high temps. This however is relatively standard for powerful laptops in a form factor this size and is simple a compromise that must be made if portability and power are musts.

Product is highly recommended.

I need to tun on my keyboard backlit illumination on this 6-month-old notebook.
Fn Spacebar just doesn't work.

Then I remembered the Gigabyte Smart Manager Program (I'm assuming I can get it from there).  I have no idea how to access it. No icon. No programme. I wonder if I have deleted it?

Thanks

Greetings,
5 short beeps is POST failure.  Normally this could indicate a faulty or failing component.

Based on your description however, since the system runs and has done so consistently, this is less likely.  What comes to mind.

A connected device or component might have a compatibility issue
Are you overclocking memory or CPU
Have you tried reseating your RAM
Have you ever tested your RAM
Is it on the QVL for your board
Power supply could be tired, under-powered or faulty
BIOS updates can impact system behavior

Fast or Ultra Fast Boot might cause an error condition.

I'm just speculating because I don't know anything more than what board you have.

Motherboards with Intel processors / 5 beeps when using (ultra) fast boot
« Last post by Wouter on June 15, 2018, 04:21:21 pm »
Hi, So I've a problem for maybe a year now, and it's annoying me more and more. I have a G1 Sniper B7 motherboard, and when fast boot or ultra fast boot is enabled the system beeps 5 times when post, but the system boots fine. The reason I'm posting this a year later is because on Windows, the problem appeared only after an restart or when windows fast boot was disabled, when windows fast boot was enabled is was (most fo the times) fine. Since I'm now using macos (hackintosh), which doesn't have such fast boot option, the 5 beeps are always when I power it up and that's very annoying. As I said, my whole system is working. I think it appeared after an bios update. But several bios updates later it's still there. Any suggestions to solve this problem? Resetting the bios doesn't help.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: questions about M2 NVMe
« Last post by BrianT on June 13, 2018, 03:29:07 pm »
It's the GA-Z170X-UD3.
Thanks for your help

AHCI Mode:
x4 m.2 Drive populated in M2A - All SATA ports SATA3_0~5 are available

x4 m.2 Drive populated in M2D - SATA ports SATA3_4~5 are available and m.2 operates at x2 speeds.

Thanks that explains it better.  So basically if I populate both M.2's then I can only use SATA 4&5 and which will slow down the M2.s?

I managed to buy a GNC-30 too from laptop-battery-shop, as expected it's 5-7% damaged already just because it was manufactured years ago and sitting in storage.

That said I'm having an issue where the laptop will only start from power off if the charger cable is in, as soon as windows boots I can pull the cable out and the laptop will continue on battery fine but for some reason it won't cold boot on battery... any ideas?

You have both m.2 slots populated and an SSD connected to SATA_5.

What board do you have?
