I am sorry to hear you are having problems with the Intel® Rapid Start technology but let me guide you.
You can get instructions to configure the technology here:
Please be aware that Intel® recommends using the devices under the default specifications and does not provide support on overclocked systems.
My best recommendation is to update the BIOS in your system provided by the Computer Manufacture.
Alright, well that was accurate advice.
The motherboard manufacturer just today deployed a: use at your own discretion 'BETA'. Posted to a dedicated section on the manufacturer's forums (scroll to the very bottom).
- The notes of the update indicate that it resolved an Intel Rapid Start failure.
- I'll just wait until an official release is available; I tested the version out today, it didn't resolve the problem.
I'm aware of the Intel Rapid Start user guide, I also tested this error on a set of RAM that's XMP profile default is 1600MHz; the problem remained. It is common practice to enable the XMP profile, doing so leads to Rapid Start failure after it transitions to S4 on this motherboard.
I know that it's old case but I'm strugling with the same or very similar issue on my configuration. I just wanted to ask You if You managed to solve that problem with Your hardware.
I have MSI Z97M-G43 motherboard with Crucial Ballistix RAM 1600MHz and I can't use Intel Rapid Start when XMP profile is turned on for my memory. Strange thing is that for this memory, XMP profile provides the same timings as the default one which are 9-9-9-24 but it's not the case. Like I said, I'm interested on that if You found any solution for this problem.
Thanks in advance for the reply.
There's no trick that you can do on your own. The only thing you can do is keep checking your resources for the most recent BIOS. MSI may release beta BIOS iterations so keep an eye out for them too by searching MSI forums.
