I think you mean it "fails" to boot?

It could be that it is trying to boot from that new drive, and is hanging up there.

Try pressing the "ESC" key during the POST screen, and select "boot menu", and then select the drive you want to boot from (which should NOT be the new drive). Then it should boot up.

Also, unless you are actually using your drives in a RAID configuration, I recommend changing the setting for your SATA ports in the BIOS to AHCI, instead of RAID -- as that will eliminate some boot overhead.

I hope this helps,

Philip
It was a typo o_O


My build
Motherboard £5
Q6600 Cpu £7
Heatsink Fan £10 or new boxed £13
PSU £4
Adapter £2.50
Case £20
Total cost £48.50 or with the boxed Heatsink £51.50
The eBay PC has the Corsair 600m PSU and GTX460 and am SSD.and BioShock
Remastered installed?o_O
Does not seem much point in me building the PC with the difference of me building it
£13.50 or with the opened not used Heatsink.£10.50 plus the fact I will have to install the Heatsink fan. Have you heard of the Evaluation case?

I think I will go for this instead of building a PC.

Just curious -- what does this build have to do with HP workstations?

This thread is for discussions related to HP workstations.... you should probably move the discussion for this non-workstation build to another thread....

Alright I need some help. I have a z440 with a Xeon E5 2640 V3, I have applied the "X99 Turbo Boost Unlock" hack and it runs very well. I want some more single thread performance though than I have however, so I was thinking of getting a 1650 V3 or 1660 V3 and overclocking it, but it looks a bit difficult. Do I really need a liquid cooler for this or can I just get a good air cooler. I also saw that the cooler uses a proprietary connector so could i get an adapter?

Hey Welcome to TPU! If you're going to go for some OCing in that system(I presume you're going to use ThrottleStop), the 1660v3 is good, the 1680v3 would be a bit better as they're binned better. Avoid the 1650, you lose two cores. 1660v3 or 1680v3 is my advice.

The stock cooler in the Z440 is rated for 165W so as long as you don't go crazy, you can get a decent OC with it. Likely 4ghz with either one of those CPUs.

hello Hp owners :D

thinking of getting a Z440.

will it boot nicely from a PCIe NVMe drive?
or does the PCIe adapter need to have "boot rom"?

oscilating between Z440 and T5810... i know the dell has 825W ..hp 700W but other than that?
i like the design more for Z440 but am i missing something critical?...feature-wise? cooling wise? (hate dell fan curve :D )

There good machines i have a Z230 modal.Only trouble with my one and i dare say with the Z440 they have Proprietary psu,s so if you want to put a new PSU in there you have todo a hack job
as you can see in this video.

It needs a boot rom, but will otherwise work fine.
Thanks.

Another issue (that lead to me getting dell instead):
Read somewhere that the z440 needs the ram cooling shroud if you want to populate all 8 ram dimms.

A local company of refurbished workstations told me so...

But saw a clip with a guy with 8 filled slots and no shroud ..

So does it work without the shroud?
Maybe next i go z440.
Love the industrial design.

Windows has nothing to do with it. Most PCs indeed use a Realtek HDA/Azalia chipset but my 645 G1, for example, has an IDT (formerly SigmaTel, at least the audio chipset division) chipset as does my ProBook 6465b. I also have an EliteBook with Conexant (audio chipset division acquired from Analog Devices) chipset. I don't think that there is anything wrong with VIA. AFAIK their chipsets (in general) tend to be pretty good but I don't know about audio specifically.

Yup, it'll be fine.

I got he front audio sorted :)Found out where that plastic bit went, as i have the same case with my Athlon 2400.Here it is my first build, i must say the Cpu fan is nosie yo_OThe only thing is those clips that hold drives in i can,t work out how they work.o_ONot a good design for me.o_OSuccess at last. :)
