    I doubt the mechanical drive having anything to do with it. Especially if its just data drive not boot.

    Fast boot is like almost like a hibernate mode... I like clean caches and swap files, plus I feel like certain manufacturer backed windows update drivers that happen automatically prefer a full reboot vs mini hibernate. I think it also minimizes memory leaks. If you have SSD there is really no reason to keep fast boot active IMHO.

    I decided to go ahead and upgrade to Windows 10 Pro from Home because I had a key lying around from a couple of years ago, but I'm wondering if since my windows license is attached to my Microsoft account, if in the future, say I get a new machine, if I'll be able to transfer windows 10 Pro to it?

    Also, my Pro license says Windows 10 RTM Professional key. Is this just a normal retail W10 Pro key?

    If Windows has to initialize a second drive it will slow the boot process especially if it's mechanical.

    Humm, try without undervolt. set it to like 185/1200 and see what you come back with. This is just to see what you get.

    My 30,306 was done with +180/+1500
    Anything higher than +180 will insta crash.

    Even +185/+0 won't let me finish a Firestrike

    That means 180 is = 2100Mhz. This number varies per machine...

    That's why you can't go higher.
