New Taichi Z390 build, built 12/17/18 two months later started freezing, keyboard dead, mouse dead, display black, had to push the reset button to get the PC back. Read quite a few posts, noticed something I had not done after adding new devices, video card, memory, switching M.2 ports, Clear the CMOS. It's something everyone does, right? not me and when I did I did it wrong, it's more than pushing the clear button on the motherboard, unplug the power completely after shutting down the computer. Doing this fixed my freezing, PC ran for 5 days non-stop, before CMOS clear it wouldn't run for more than 24hrs. Cleared CMOS, then updated BIOS, 1.9 working without fail. I had read another post where software install would fail because a DVD/Blue Ray drive would be the cause of the failure. I had the same problem, after clearing the CMOS, no install failures.

Did you follow the preferred method of nvme installation?

Only nvme no other drives, I have two nvme's so they were both installed so no issue with that.

Set BIOS to AHCI and UEFI only. If they are sammy NVMEs then make sure you install the sammy drivers after initial W10 install.

So that does ask the question - are the NVMEs Samsung or other?

As I started this thread I was having a lot of issues, but not anymore - all working very well.

Something is wrong with 1.8 and 1.9 still. When ever i connect an NVME (1 or 3, havent tried 2), the booting takes at least 1 minute more, its even faster to boot into a sata ssd (as long as there are no nvme plugged).

I'm guessing "Adjust the NVME Hardware TPM Encryption" messed something up with the NVMEs.

Well I needed to check something with the Godlike so re-installed the Taichi and updated the BIOS to 1.90

Have to say everything is now working perfectly, so well in fact I am sticking with the Taichi. Passmark Performance test is giving a score of 8500 which I am more than satisfied with. Whatever they did with 1.90 fixed the problems I was having so nice one ASRock.

Very interesting thread, specially for me, since building with a Taichi Ultimate.

I just assemble and havent seen much issues with 1.8, but im not using a NVME yet, just assemble it outside to see if everything was working before going inside the case.

Wondering if others have updated to 1.9 to see if its running good wish NVMEs? and if MCE is available again?

I updated to 1.90 prior to my new build. Board and new BIOS is working well for me.

Was anyone brave enough to try the new 1.90 update? If so was the issue gone?

I'd also like to add that I'm on Windows 10 1809 with every update installed from Windows update. Again, I doubt that's the issue but you never know.
