You still should be able to use an m.2, just not boot from it without BIOS support:

Just an FYI for the VI hero users out there. With GeneO's link and following a few easy directions you can indeed BOOT from a Samsung 950 pro with Windows 10 (didn't try any other OS)

I'm running my 950 pro with the Addonics pcie x 4 adapter at full speed

Thanks

I posted this in the audio section but I'll give it a shot here.

Is it possible to plug in a headset and speakers in to the rear IO port?
The headset and speakers have a total of 2 green line ins and 1 mic in. How would I be able to manage the 2 green line ins with only 1 green port? Can I have a speaker set and headset from the same set of rear io? The maximus vi hero audio suite is pretty big, but I havent been able to find anything to solve my problem.

I don't think you can use both (headset/speakers) in the rear IO port. I have creative sound blaster installed which allows me to have both speakers and headset plugged in at the same time, maybe think about getting a sound card.

Has anybody ever had any luck overclocking this board with CPU strap?

I set the strap to 125 and change my multipliers, memory speed so they are slightly under what I normally clock, and the DMI target is at 100 MHz as it should be.

No matter what I have tried, the board won't post - it just sits there with the fans spinning until I hard reset it. Then when boot back up, F1 to get into BIOS, if I restore my saved settings, it does the same thing when I reboot. I have to first do a F5 load optimized defaults, reboot, then load my saved settings and reboot. So changing strap must be change some hidden settings/data that a restore defaults clears.

Anyhow, has anyone successfully done this with this board?

Is it possible to set the fan duty cycle lower than 40% on the CPU_FAN PWM header? I have the EK Predator 360 and would like to take advantage of the 25% minimum PWM duty cycle of the Vardar ER fans.

Using fanexpert? Yes. You have to edit a file.

Where can I find a tutorial? Thank you.

Here,

First, calibrate your fans with fanexpert. This will run your fans at various speeds and will determine the minimum speeds your fans can run at. Then you can look at each fan in fanexpert and see what is the minimum speed (or smallest % full speed) it can run at. You will want some margin above this.

The calibration will create an xml file called FanCalibrationData.xml. Where this is located depends on the fanexpert version so search for it. For my version it is in: C:\ProgramData\Asus\Dip\FanXpert


You want to edit this file. You will probably need change the security options on the file so you can edit and save it. Make a copy first for backup.

You will find entries for the CPU fan (fan key 0) through fan key 3 in the file. Under each of these you will see xml that looks like:
Code:
<maxdutytokeepstill>40</maxdutytokeepstill>
<mindutytokeepruning>0</mindutytokeepruning>
<rpmofmaxdutytokeepstill>491</rpmofmaxdutytokeepstill>


You will want to change maxdutytokeepstill (and maybe rpmofmaxdutytokeepstill though I don't think it is necessary). For instance I set maxdutytokeepstill to 40% for the fan 3 above so I can lower the fan to 40% of the maximum rpm. Be careful not to set it to low and use the fanexpert display profile of the fan as a guide.

Save the file, then you need to restart the asusFanControlService so it will read the edited file. You can do this by running services.msc, find that service, and restart it, or you can just reboot the computer.

If you ever reinstall the Asus software, you will need to go through this again, so it is a good idea to make a copy of the file.

Thank you once again! Your post is really helpful. I have a doubt though: suppose I have different fans on CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT headers, which is the case. I'll have to take into account the minimum rated speed of the fans in the OPT header, right (which I actually don't know, because these are 1200rpm Phanteks PH-F140SP voltage controlled by the PWM hub of the Enthoo Primo)?

By the way, I'm using AI Suite 3 V1.00.56, whis is the most recent version available for download on our board's support site, but dates back to May 2014. Where can I find the latest version?
