On my new build, I am getting random "XX has changed, do you want to enter setup?" messages almost every time I boot. The hardware it identifies is always random, but includes M.2 storage mode, SATA mode, memory and CPU. When I enter the BIOS, everything looks the same, and when I save, "no changes". What's going on here?

    Does a cmos clear help sort the problem? Is your bios fully up to date? Does the issue occur on older and newer bios versions?
