New PC build
Window 10 Pro
Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite
32 Gig DDR4 3466 RAM Corsair
1T Samsung M.2 drive
EVGA GeForce 1060

Extremely slow cold boot. Like 5-10 minutes before it starts to load windows. XMP memory profile has to be turned off or my games will crash. RAM has also showed 1733 mhz then next boot will show 1333 mhz. RAM is on the MOBO compatibility list. Been trying to reach Gigabyte tech support for over a week now and trying to resolve this in case something needs to be RMA'd. I have the most updated MOBO Firmware.

Any help would be appreciated.

What CPU are you using? What is the exact model corsair ram do you have? Do you have all your mobo drivers install.

The big question I have is the CPU you have and does you mobo support it or compatible with. Compatible with usually means a BIOS update is required.

XMP memory profile
AFAIK.....AMD mobo"s don't actually have XMP, that's a Intel thing. That said....I don't know for sure what the new AMD x470/x570 mobo's have/call there version of XMP or if they even have such a thing. It's always been a manual setting in the BIOS. Again, I don't have one so I don't know for sure. My bud has a Asus X470 mobo and he says it doesn't but the BIOS makes it easy to OC the RAM. That CPU is a 2nd gen and only supports up to 2933mhz. After that, there's no guarantees.

From your mobo's manual there are 5 types of cpu's for RAM support. Are you sure you've matched the RAM to the right chip version. In same section.....there's a M.2 list.

I have not matched it to the right CPU. I am ordering the right CPU tonight, just wanted to rule out the MOBO. I will post back in a week or less once it is installed to see if it fixes my issue.

Thank you for the help and responding so promptly!
Cheers!
