NUC5i7RY Bios update and Samsung 970 pro NVMe M.2 running Slow

Hello

My NUC is NUC5i7RYH win10x64 and i did all latest driver updates.

I have bios version RYBDWi35.86A.0355.2016.0224.1501
and i see that there is new OS independent Bios RYBDWi35.86A.0385.2020.0519.1558

Can i update to this version of the Bios? the current Bios I updated with express bios update from windows.

Now i use Samsung 970 pro NVMe m2 drive and it runs slow.

will this bios update help me with Samsung drive to run Faster if there if there are new options are added to this Latest Bios For m2 drives? or should i use only express bios update?

my main goal is to speed up the Drive

Robert

Hi @RobertG 

  1. Since the update from version 0355 to 0385 is quite big jump I recommend to update BIOS using BIOS Recovery with the Yellow BIOS Security Jumper Removed method:
  2. Prepare USB stick fully formatted to FAT32 with Bios  File RY0385.bio . Format your USB with Quick Format option unchecked. Do not format your USB in MAC (OS) or Linux machine. Use Windows.
  3. Disconnect the power adapter and remove the bottom panel from your NUC.
  4. Remove the Yellow Bios Security Jumper. (page 53 in Technical Product Specification)
  5. Insert the USB with the RY0385.bio file into rear USB slot.
  6. Reconnect the power adapter and power ON the NUC. Wait 30 sec - 2min. The Recovery process will start automatically and will end after 2 -5 minutes.
  7. When bios recovery is completed, press and hold the Power Button to switch the power OFF, remove the power adapter and replace the Security Jumper (pins 1-2) . Reinstall the bottom panel.
  8. Power your NUC ON.
  9. Enter Bios setting by pressing F2 during boot process.
  10. Press F9(followed by "Y"), to set Bios to default settings. Press F10 (followed by "Y"), to save the settings and exit to O.S. Let the NUC fully reboot.
  11. I don't know if it will improve the SSD performance, however many important fixes where incorporated in the updates from your current version. This update method is the safest and recommended in your case.

Hello Leon. Thanks for responding. I used F7 method. Copied bios into flash and updated bios that way. it worked. was successfully updated.

Should I do it again the way you are suggesting?

I will tag-team with Leon, since he is probably heading for bed about now...

Doing it using the BIOS Recovery method guarantees that all capsules will be installed, regardless of version or date. This ensures that all segments of the flash are in the proper state. As a result, if anything feels wonky, I always reinstall the BIOS using the BIOS Recovery method.

I always recommend that folks reset the BIOS Configuration after doing a BIOS Recovery. The process is as follows:

  1. At POST, use F2 to enter BIOS Setup (Visual BIOS).
  2. Use F9 (followed by Y) to reset the BIOS Configuration to defaults.
  3. Use F10 (followed by Y) to save the new BIOS Configuration and exit BIOS Setup.
  4. At POST, use F2 to again enter BIOS Setup.
  5. Make any changes to the BIOS Configuration that you desire (turning off NUMLOCK, for example) or that your hardware configuration requires (setting boot order, for example).
  6. Use F10 (followed by Y) to save the new BIOS Configuration and exit BIOS Setup.

Hope this helps,

...S

How is your SSD acting now? If running the way it should, then leave it. If it's still slow, then do the BIOS Recovery. There's no guarantee that this will fix anything, however.

Hello

I did not see any improvement to NVMe M.2 performance after bios Update with Help of F7 method. following another suggestion in forum I put the PC and Bios on a balanced power mode and that helped the Lagging of the speed. Pc runs little faster now and no lagging.
