    You can get it through Amazon resellers and eBay sellers. But I haven't seen a new one in a long time, they don't manufacture it anymore. And they're all still expensive!

    I love this board, if I had known how much I was going to love it, I would've bought two of them........just in case.


    The reason for two 12V power plugs is just to get more power to the board for people who have lots of power hungry accessories and like to overclock. It's one of those things that could potentially hurt you if you don't plug in both and you have a lot of power demand, but will never hurt you if you just hook it up even if you don't need it. So my recommendation is to just hook up both power sources, fah-get abott it, and move on. Nowadays pretty much every video card has plenty of power source directly to it, so it doesn't affect the board requirements (PCIe slot requirements are fixed). So in my opinion it's mostly an overclocking concern. I don't know what CPU you have but TDP is 140 W for mine and I don't want to starve it.

    Exclamation

    cpu is also 140w. i decided to use both 8+4... working fine now...

    moving on;
    simple setup;

    asus rampage v mb with intel x99 chipset
    1 x samsung 960 pro nvme via m.2 port (no other drives)
    windows 7 (yes, really) installed and working perfectly. fyi; used the gigabyte windows usb installation tool to create working win7 usb stick.

    drive seems to perform at close-ish to expected/advertised values. (see below) drive is also using latest firmware. i know so because i booted off the samsung firmware iso and after it checks, reports as "being latest". crystal disk mark and other disk benchmark tools all report same-ish results, as expected, so drive not hindered in any significant way. (could maybe improve around 5-7%?) magician itselfs shows expected-ish results.






    my only concern of sorts is that samsung's own magician isn't fully supporting it. see below. is it because it uses microsoft nvme drivers? but if yes, what can i do? i did get current latest samsung drivers, installed them, rebooted, but no change. it's as if they -the samsung drivers- did nothing. they are installed under "program files" and have an uninstall option under windows add/remove as normal, but aren't installed really.




    additionally, i also tried to manually update drivers by going to device manager > hardware > drive > driver tab > update driver, then point to the correct place that holds the four needed files. they are; secnvme.cat, secnvme.inf, secnvme.sys & secnvmeF.sys. they are the same as the ones the installer installs anyway, with the last two being digitally signed by both samsung (sha1) and microsoft (sha256). i also tried to "old" right click the inf file and click install, only to get "the inf file you selected does not support this method of installation".




    i suppose i can just carry on, but decided to maybe try and somehow switch to samsung drivers, so magician recognizes and starts supporting it's own damn drive before i start installing the other apps and start using windows properly. since this is early stage, i have not updated windows to the very latest, though not sure that would make any difference here. the drive is up and running just fine, seems to perform exactly how it's supposed to, just that the drive maker's own software isn't playing nice with it.

    finally, the bios settings for booting are currently set to; auto for the CSM (both auto/enabled work, decided to leave on auto) and "other os" for the safe boot section.


    ideas?
