Actually, new egg sells close to 300 M.2 form factor SATA interface drives. Since nVME is a newer protocol, there are fewer (close to 200) of them available now. While PCIe 3.0 x4 is quickly overtaking SATA, It is still very easy to buy the wrong one if you aren't careful.Edit: Correction, nVME is the protocol, PCIe 3.0 x4 is the interface, and M.2 is the form factor.
Not knocking your methodology, but it it faster to find instabilities using a decent stress test compared to gaming. This can help you tune your settings with more control. Games tend to not utilize all the cores at a full load. With that in mind, where it could take just a few minutes to find if a setting you changed is not 100% stable using OCCT, Realbench, AIDA, or p95, it could take hours or days of gaming to reach the same conclusion. By then, you may have forgotten...

I got mine 4.5 stable at 1.3v, though I couldn't get 4.6 stable. It can help to set your uncore manually to 3.5 and leave your xmp off. If you can get your core stable that is the most important thing. Then work your uncore and memory up after.
Have you tried messing with the timings and voltages on your current set? Most likely you will be able to hit similar, or better, timings by just increasing the voltage on your current kit. Definitely worth trying to OC your current kit before trying to replace it. Try bumping to 1.35v and see what timings you can get.
What about bios screenshots? I'm sure you are just missing a setting somewhere.
Some screenshots of your bios settings may help figure out what settings you are missing. You probably shouldn't run your cpu that hot. I try to keep mine under 85C when stressing. If you haven't read it yet, the Skylake Overclocking Guide [With Statistics] is a good source of information and a good place to ask questions on z170 settings. Good luck
I had no problem putting the EVO on my Asus x99 Sabertooth mobo. Sounds weird. Did you forget the springs? Too late for a picture i suppose?Edit looking at the manual, I bet your using the wrong standoffs like Revan suggested. Should have come with two sets. You want to use the ones on the left...
I tried a 140 on the rear along with my two 280s. The issue was that I couldn't get enough cool air to it and it didn't help my temps at all. I ended up going with intake on the front and top rad and just an exhaust fan on the rear. That way I am only pulling cool air over my radiators and the unrestricted fan in the rear moves that warmer air out. That seemed to improve my delta over the other setup.If it were me, I would go with the 360 + 280 and make them both intake...
Did you even watch the video? He obviously got an unbalanced impeller and found it running it dry first. He can afford to do that because he has spares lying around and he recognized it was bad from experience with that style of pump. Like he said its a one in a thousand find. When he puts the spare impeller in it doesn't rub at all.That being said. I would also recommend not running the pump dry, unless you have spares lying around, or were given the pump as part of a...
