Hello
I have a gigabyte z170x soc force motherboard and an oc'd i7 6700k (the ram is overclocked as well).
I'm having problems with booting up. For starters my pc sometimes just fails to boot, I get an error even before the bios screen saying windows has failed to boot. This as I said seems to happen randomly (I just reboot and it works).
The other problem I have is that my boot times are really slow (25 seconds) and changing the boot mode in bios(disabled, fast boot, ultra fast boot) doesn't make any difference at all. I have csm disabled and windows is installed in uefi mode on an intel m.2 600p ssd. (also all my startup services are disabled)

Can anyone help me?

[OS = Windows 10]

not sure to be honest searched the manual but found nothing obvious that would explain your issue, except found this on CSM

yes start by taking your overclocking on your ram off and see if the system boots properly, if not take the overclocking off cpu then test again, testing against an OC'ed system is pointless because the OC could be the primary culprit in this situation.

Hi thanks for your answer, so I did as you said, removed ram oc, xmp and cpu oc and it still wouldn't boot, I then enabled csm and the system booted fine, but still slow.
I was under the impression that having csm off would speed up my boot, why can't I have it disabled and have you got an idea of why the system is booting so slow even with ultra fast boot on (which should even skip the bios screen)?

Thanks for your help, I suppose I got something wrong during the installation on windows, when I format for the new os I'll make sure I get it right.
