    x99 doesn't boot on first try

    I'm not an experienced motherboard manipulator, and as such I have set as much to default as possible. For helpful info, ask anything you want obvious.
    I'm running win 7 off my m.2 ssd on the board
    24gb ram

    When I boot the machine, for the longest time, the process has been:
    1) Machine lights up, fans spin up to full speed for about 8 seconds, then spool down
    2)...nothing happens
    3)a minute later, pc shuts off.
    4) power on machine again
    5) machine lights up, fans spool for 5-8 secs
    6) POST beeps
    7) BIOS warning stating "overclocking has failed! press f1 for setup" appears despite not doing any OC at all
    8) Enter bios, do nothing, select either reset nothing, or boot to ssd...and windows boots up as normal

    Fastboot fails to boot at all, and it restarts into a normal boot
    Does anyone have any ideas? Would flashing the bios do anything?

    Most often this is a RAM issue (having 24 GB of RAM is kind of odd probable you are mixing different kits). Try with one RAM stick set to 2133 MHz.

    Make sure you use a single quad channel kit on this platform....best to use one on the QVL.

    Hrm...the RAM is all from the same pack...not sure how that would get a mix up...and I'll google whatever the qvl is here in a bit, as I said I'm not an expert at these things, and I had expected when I put this system together that putting a hd with a graphics card and ram from the same box together would create a stable system on default values. That doesn't appear to have happened.
