You have two Samsung NVMe M.2 SSDs listed, the second one should be SM951. But it makes no difference.

Intel only provides IRST RAID support for NVMe SSD on their 100 series chipset boards that support RAID, such as any Z170 board.

So, X99 boards do not support IRST RAID for NVMe SSDs, sorry to say.

What do you need the water block for? The CPU? The CPU VRMs or chipset?

Impossible to answer your question without knowing what the water block will be used for.

Yes it does. I am sure you will enjoy the board Thumbs Up

How about the samsung 850 pro? And what about the Taichi, supports both 850/950 as well?
I ask because most asrock mobos' list of supported storage do not list them... I am inclined to believe they are simply not being kept up to date well, but not risking it.

So I bought this thing. It did nearly everything I wanted Big smile

...except ONE MAJOR THING...

Ever seen this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuJYMCbIbPk
Well you can't do it unless you have room in your tower to fit a nice GPU in PCIE slot 5. Tongue

Why? Because the motherboard hijacks PCIE slot 2 and thus your hypervisor can't pass it through to one of your VMs. I did almost 2 months of research to get this machine together, and now ASRock is telling me how they "suggest" I use the motherboard.Cry

If you want to do fun stuff with virtualization and get more than one person to log into one computer and have their own GPU to run on this motherboard, don't buy it. 

I've got the whole thing built, I start it up, and guess what... I can't assign a default PCIE slot for the BIOS splash screen.Angry

Why would anyone build a X99 VT-enabled motherboard that doesn't allow customization of the PCIE slots? Confused

Anyone want to buy a ViewSonic display with 3 HDMI ports where the first port HAS to be used with a proprietary ViewSonic DVD player? Yeah... didn't think so. Oh and ViewSonic wouldn't make something like that... cause it's utterly stupid.Clap

If you haven't yet already,as you're located in the US contact ASRock Tech Support using one of the below means and inquire.

Too, remember they may be on an extended vacation from yesterday thru Sunday due to Thanksgiving here.

Support Phone: 1-909-590-8308
Support Email: support@asrockamerica.com



What CPU is installed? It might be a matter of available PCIe lanes. Natch that. I just read the manual

EDIT: Too, what components do you have installed in the other MB's PCIe slots and M.2 slot?



And I hear ya on the seemingly ridiculous. I buy a top of the line Samsung PN64F8500 plasma when they're introduced, at a large investment, only to discover the thing was so expensive to build in the first place that after only a TWO year span from release Samsung ceased carrying replacement boards for it. Now ~4yrs into it and all they have for parts to service it is a smattering of screws and a few connector cables. Bad, BAD, Samsung.
