I've just put together my new build: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/ZsB7JV
I'm having a few issues with the BIOS. It all works fine until I press F10 to try and save and exit. Then after exiting BIOS the PC shows a black screen and wont let me power it down without pressing and holding the power button/ turning it off at the mains. The next time it boots it will flash CPU and RAM errors and not launch the BIOS. However when I launch it again it will be fine.
What's weird is that I also get this on the next boot if I power it down by just pressing the off button when in the BIOS. So I end up with a cycle of a normal boot with no error messages, and then one where I cannot access the BIOS and have error messages.
CPU temperature 27 degrees steady, no error messages whilst in the BIOS itself the only thing I've tried to change is the XMP which I did automatically not on the advanced setting. But even with this set back to default I still get the issues.
Should I just proceed to boot windows and hope this goes away? I bought 3200 ram which is supported by the motherboard so it seems a shame not to use XMP when I'm having the same issue whether XMP is used or not?
First build so I hope I'm not missing something obvious...
