    Considering upgrading my System Ram possibly at Christmas, I can buy from Crucial.com and make sure I get compatible memory with my G11CD-K, going for 16gb (will be first system in entire household to ever have 16gbs lol once I get it) Speed wise thinking maybe DDR 4 2666mhz (not sure how much board can support, Crucial.com showed that speed and 2400mhz speed, Timings gonna try to go for 16-16-16-16 if can or if that's not good, then can pick another lol

    Ballistix Sport LT Red 16GB Kit (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 UDIMM CT9997577 | G11CD-K | Crucial.com
    maybe that set

    So is mine, no big deal
    Amount is more important than speed(above the rated by intel DDR4-2666 ) really.
    Slower with tighter timings.
    For me the 8700k is Temperamental it can go to 5Ghz off the bat it has a turbo boost of 5ghz
    I'm using 3466mhz though brought it down to 3200

    It being stable is another thing you can go all auto and have a lot of juice flowing or go Manual i settled for 4.9Ghz

    So far benchmarks seem around the same so i am considering selling it and re installing my z170 because i don't know if i could unload that platform for $850.00 cpu ram 32gb and board

    Current desktop is driving me insane with constant crashing. So I forked over the cash and ordered this guy. I will be running another GTX 970 that I'm buying from the same coworker as last time. I designed it to be upgraded to an i7 8700K in a year. Going Intel this build. I love Ryzen but I think I'll build another Ryzen desktop in a generation or two.

    I'm still learning my way around the new ASUS board.

    I broke this post up in sections so it'll be easier to read and follow for ya'll

     Connecting AIO Pump

    I finally figured out why I kept getting a CPU fan warning when I hooked my Thermaltake AIO to the AIO header, instead of the CPU fan header(which is what the FLOE Riing manual says to do, but if I have an extra header for the pump, why not try and use it).

    I needed to go and turn of CPU fan monitoring, was all, and make sure the AIO Pump monitoring was turned on.

    Actually the effect is the same, whether connected to the fan or AIO header, though-- the water flows at a certain speed, at a specified temp.

    Also I'm still learning the fan controls, there are a lot more than the MSI board had, but I guess MSI does a lot automatically, without the need of user intervention, plus it was a Pro board, for workstations and not a real overclocking/gaming board.

     "Missing SSD"

    Now the only problem I need to fix is, one of my SSDs if not being seen in BIOS and Windows, even though I have everything set correctly.
    Both my M.2 SSds are set to PCIe x4 , so only SATA ports 4 & 5 are disabled. 1 through 4 are active.
    I have tried using ports 1,2, and 3. And also switching to ports 2,3, and 4, and still the SSD is not seen.
    Even though the data cable is a new one that came with the board, I'll try swapping it out later.
    The SATA power cable being used for it, is good, because it's shared with the working SSD next to it.

    I hate this, because to keep swapping ports and cables, I need to take out that damn oversized Zotac every time to get to the data ports.



     Intel TPM 2.0

    Also I finally found the setting to turn on the 8700K's TPM 2.0.

    I had noticed the in Device Manager that Security Devices was missing.
    This one really took a while to find.
    I had to go to PCH-FW Configuration and select PTT(Intel's TPM 2.0 that has been there since the 6th Gen chips at least), as the default is dTPM(discrete TPM, which is a module you need to buy extra)
    Now I'm good-to-go here too:

    The ASUS BIOS has way too many menus and even more submenus. Things that actually belong together are scattered throughout it.

    But, this is part of the fun of having a new system(in my opinion) learning all the settings and functions.
