    Hi,

    I am not familiar with the Intel Optane options but it looks like it is for using a special memory device or setting up a RAID configuration for using both M.2 slots for a RAID.
    Yes, so that setting has to be disabled. You can also add Sata drives to the pool if like but there's not much point in doing so.

    Hello again, yes it is set to disabled as the motherboard set it to such, so it seems it is then working the way it should, if I understand correctly it not needing to be installed with other drives, I did however update my driver for intel, and it is now listed as a bootable drive.

    I want to thank each and everyone of you techs for the assistance, if I can give short 2cents, it all started with an "out of date" motherboard bios, after that I could set the settings as instructed, then I updated the intel drive and set the pci's to auto detect, it disabled the gene memory, but I can use my drive and is listed as a boot option. The legacy issue came up after adding the standard hdd to the pc,I then followed fdegrove 's advice and removed all drives, and I removed the hdd and all is now 100%. I purchased the i9 system Saturday, and can finally say it is all working as it should 4days later haha. You guys rock!

    Great news. Good to hear you have it working like it should. How about some pictures of your rig in the section I linked above (you always build a great rig) and it would be really good to get a report on how the new CPU and X299 chipset work. It's all new and we would like to hear about them, from someone who actually knows. You know how I feel about the "professional" reviewers. There are only a couple I pay any attention to. Congratulations on getting it working as it should.

    Hi,

    Glad to see you have it working @Lagged. And yes, I'd love to see that rig too.

    essenbe and fdegrove haha thanx, I wanted to post my rig, but it looks like crap compared to some rigs I saw there. I am waiting for my new graphic card to arrive in stock for my "complete" rig. At this stage my radiators and fans are all just sitting in a box, so the pc is stock standard and cpu cooled by an i80 v2 cpu cooler. Nothing photo worthy I am afraid.

    As for my opinion on the i9's, for me it boosted my gaming performance beyond imagination, it is as if it was what my gfx card needed, I understand that ddr3 ram I had and now ddr4 is also a big difference etc. But can;t deny the performance I gained from the i9, I am running photoshop smooth as silk haha, might make myself a signature lol. I am happy with the temps too, running on idle at 28c, and under load with the Witcher 3 on epic graphix it sits at around 35/37c. And thats about 5 or 6c higher than I got on my previous custom watercooled loop. So very happy with the cpu as far as my limited knowledge goes.

    Limited Knowledge ?
    You forget that I know how good you are. Tell that to someone who doesn't know any better.

    Hi,

    That CPU alone is impressive already. Add the all the rest and hey, presto, a worldclass gaming rig.

    Enjoy,

    Hi,

    I'd be interested to know the average temperature of that Samsung 960 card. My current Patriot runs at 60 degrees idling with a passive cooler so I'm eyeballing that 960 to replace it.

    I can't read the temp on mine. It's installed on a card. But, I don't think mine gets very hot. I've touched it after running all day and it barely feels warm at all. I have an unusual case, but it has a 200mm fan blowing down on the whole motherboard and 960. Maybe that makes a difference.
