    Asus Confirmed yesterday that X99 boards has boot issues with Usb-Hubs connected.

    Hey,

    1: Boot issues with X99 motherboard.

    I was talking to the support yesterday, Usb hubs is a huge problem on X99 boards,
    There is no solution that can resolves all boot problems.


    2: Black Post screen, is common for wrong XMP profile.

    Hope this can help people to stop searching for solutions that can´t be solved.

    Greetings Tommie

    I think you will find it can be solved, but Asus do not care as you can probably tell by the missing support staff on here.

    Yesss . . . I am becoming both disillusioned by and resentful of the Taiwan Mafia. . .. EVGA has better product support, but its forum lacks common everyday advice like this ASUS forum has. Perhaps the solution is to discuss EVGA products (and the exceptional customer service that is commensurate with their products) here.

    The Classified MOBO looks like a nice board . . . but . . . I am shackled to the R5E for the time being.

    Non-compliant USB devices cause the majority of these boot problems, the motherboard causes relatively few. Older USB devices are often spotty about reliable booting because their pre-U3 controller chips can't present proper boot sectors or file systems (unless one uses production tools to reprogram the USB device firmware with a bootable partition).

    Most motherboards require bootable USB devices are plugged into a specific USB port, not any of the dozen USB ports.

    Not only that, I saw 20-30 cases who have boot problems after any Overclock...I notice for now only ASUS motherboards.
    And I had same problem on beginning, and when I have usually problem when some widely present problem exist, same is with drivers, never some uncommon problem that only I see that. Usually if problem exist that will manifest on my platform.

    Because I usually really pay attention on build my system is always clean from garbage, installation of components is easy with full attention.
    When I had problem with boot I knew that ASUS really good know what cause to system won't boot with fast Blue Screen without dump files even after downlock CPU or change something connected for CPU voltage, CPU Clock or XMP. Special because I met few people with exactly same problem and few more people with similar problem but source is probably same. Until today I don't know how I success to OC on 4.0GHz... Something with CPU Level Up 3.8-4.0-4.2 than voltage on manual 1.150V and somehow I boot.

    It's really weird that ASUS behave so lazy and without interest for best platform for last several years with newest DDR4 memory.
    Like you see MSI, ASRock fast finished revision of motherboards with USB 3.1, Rampage 5 owners need to install some x4 cards to occupy PCI-E slots usually x8 or x16 slots because no x4 available... Completely without explanation.
    They pay more attention on Skylake and that is story for self, I very good know that few months after i7-6700K will show up better option, and that always happen with Z chipset and you don't know what to do, to wait or not...
    Because of that Xtreme platforms are much better. They launch processor and next for 20 months.
    If you build only one CPU for one Xtreme socket that mean you don't need to worry 3.5-4 years.
    But ASUS made some mistakes with X99.
    First they didn't had plan for premium motherboard and new ASMedia USB 3.1 controller was finished in same time when they launched board.
    They should delay freely premium board 2-3 months instead to R5E wait Intel processors 2 months.
    Second all people who don't want ROG need to tolerate white color or to pay 500e for Workstation motherboard.
    Later they launch some Sabertooth and that's for specific type of people and one nice mATX motherboard.
    That mATX motherboard immediately reject 50% of people who thought to buy because inferior M.2 speed.
    Nothing can't work on full speed on that M.2 slot. XP941, SM951, 950 Pro and nothing in future.
    They shouldn't done like that...
    They should prepare mATX ROG month after USB 3.1 show up with full transfer on M.2 and one E-ATX ROG revision both with Internal USB 3.1 and some improvements, they had place to improve NVMe support and few similar minor things.
    And they should offer R5E version for 360-370e without ASUS OC Socket. I mean that peace cost 100 euro, and 70% of people lock him in DVD bay and never use him.
    And off course than other brands have easy job if they want to offer better solutions.
    Is it possible to offer nicer that's other question but there are several options now 300-500 euro far better than ASUS X99 boards and X99 will stay primary platform next 2 years and when Skylake E show up still will people upgrade on X99 because it's cheaper.

    I must say that I would not change R5E for any available X99 board but they should done that much better with more cheaper options. They launch 5-6 similar options with same look, with minor differences and people who want to pay one mATX ROG board or one full black board need to choose some other brand because on every ASUS board miss something important.

    This problem was really frustrating for me.

    Well before this thread popped up, I was unknowingly suffering from this problem. Turns out my mad catz USB rudder pedals were the cause of it (the system still won't make it past post 90% of the time with them plugged in at boot). You have no idea how LONG it took me to determine they were what was causing the trouble!

    Its strange what kind of USB devices can cause a hung POST. My 12TB USB 2 x drive Raid 0: no problems. My X34 monitor which has a razer mini gaming keyboard type thing plugged into it: no problems. But as soon as I try to boot with freaking RUDDER pedals plugged in, hung post 90% of the time.

    Same here. Though I'm not convinced there isn't also an electrical issue with my R5E independent of this, I've had a PS/2 keyboard plugged in because the USB ports have been erratic until the OS is up and running from day-1. Maybe this one specifically (mine) is a lemon, but it stands out among other ROG boards I have in its high cost and low quality so far.

    OK now we have some explanation, it's good because most of people are not hit with that problem.

    But ASUS need 2 new X99 motherboards, premium. ROG mATX Black and R5E Black.
    I don't know what they plan to do if Intel decide to launch next Xtreme platform as Skylake Xtreme.
    He will show up after next Z chipset.
    For one year. Maybe not but example ... ASUS have one ROG motherboard for X99 chipset and 5 ROG motherboard for Skylake, where 50% of CPU is disabled buy 99% of user, 50% Internal GPU, other 50% everything else, and over that thermal paste...
    Special now when people talk about working Radeon and GeForce together on Windows 10. 4 cores will help lot.
    In mean time it's very hard that someone now choose R5E near newer improved X99 motherboards.
    It's more possible to someone who need really nice strong CPU and only that and love to OC chose some Skylake where priority is Internal GPU because bad ASUS X99 options or to be smarter and choose other X99 motherboard by other brand.
    If someone is loved in stronger Gen 3 Chipset again he will wait little more for Skylake Xtreme, everything same as Z170 plus all advantages of Xtreme platform.

    Very frustrating to purchase a top of the line motherboard and you cant overclock. I overclock it to 4.0 or 4.1 or even 4.2 but then with USB devices plugged in it will not boot to windows it hangs. If I disconnect all USB devices except my mouse and keyboard which are wireless it boots fine. Its driving me crazy to spend this kind of money and cant really overclock.

    If I stop overclocking it boots just fine !

    Crazy if you ask me.
