Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0 / SSD match up.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have the Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0 MOBO and was thinking of getting a Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
I have read in a few places that some Samsung SSD's had issues with the Asus MOBO's.
Is this true, or is it old news and they have sorted the problem out.?
any suggestions on a SSD for my system would be nice... Thank you.

While I don't have an EVO I do have a Samsung 840 Pro that I've used on my Crosshair V Formula-Z. I never noticed any issues with that combo (that's the only personal experience I have with Samsung/AMD board.)

Thanks for the replies, I read this in a Newegg review of the SSD, and also found a topic on the subject at Tom's Hardware.
this made me think of not going with Samsung for this reason, but i know they make good stuff.
if I remember right, it had to do with a BIOS update being needed, my memory is not the best any more...lol
but i could move up to the Pro series of Samsung, it's only a few more bucks.

I have this mobo and I am running Crucial M4 with no problems. I haven't heard anything about the issues with Samsung SSDs.

I swapped out to this mobo just yesterday and my 840 EVO (250GB) runs happily on it.

Thanks Moragg, i knew someone would have this combo of parts..thumb.gif
but i may still move to the Pro series, I guess i won't know what i'll get until i leave the store...lol
next will be the OS.. and my 1st time installing a OS on a new build.. glad they have youtube instructions.
I should have this build finished around the holidays, it sure has been fun.
