Asus Z10PE D16 WS Owners Thread - Page 2

post #11 of 420
Hi,
I just acquired Asus Z10PE-D16 WS and other components to build a new system. They are on the way to me. I am wondering if the onboard M.2 slot supports NVME drives? If it does, has anyone tried to boot from an NVME drive installed in the M.2 socket on the board? Has anyone tried to boot from an NVME drive installed in a PCIE adapter installed in a PCIE slot on the board?

Thanks.

I have an NVMe Samsung MZVPV256 M.2 disk attached to my M.2 port and installed Windows on it without any issues.

So as long as you fine a compatible version it should be fine.

Good to know. Can you tell me what I need to check to ensure compatibility?

Yeah it is a shame but at £400 not many people are going to have it.

Previous generation was quite popular, but maybe that was later in life.

Thanks.

Using a 950 Pro NVME in the M.2 slot. Works fine with three notes:
- W7 doesnt come with NVME drivers so youll need them on disk/stick for its install
- The NVME drive does not activate the HDD light (silly oversight)
- BIOS has an NVME info section but doesn't populate with any data for me

EDIT:: Simultaneous response

I assume retro means a new enough version of windows to natively understand NVME.

OK, I am going to try the Samsung 950 PRO M.2 256GB (MZ-V5P256BW). My OS being Windows 10 probably either has the necessary driver built in or, it goes online and finds them (hopefully).

It will have the drivers built it. Just pop the disk in or USB and install.

Best thing that I ever bought. Tinier than I imagined as well

I just got my animation rig up and running on this MB with dual e5-2640 v4's (w/ BLCK currently at 103 for 2.7Ghz). I'm currently working on getting Win7 installed onto a Samsung 950 Pro 512GB m.2 drive. Windows 7 installed on a temporary HDD see's the drive just fine after installing the drivers and using Disk Management to allocate the drive space and formatting it. I hope to hear back from Asus on the best method to make this the boot drive. The Samsung Disk Migration software should be able to move everything off the HDD onto the M.2 drive, but I'm extra cautious because I don't see the m.2 drive in the NVME section of the Bios as ScratchyBollix pointed out.

And I'm also researching the settings to get the Max Turbo Frequency to get to 3.5 Ghz when rendering. Probably a BIOS setting somewhere, but the CPU's currently stay at 2.7Ghz for 30 minute frame renders using 100% CPU. Anyone can chime in if they have recommended settings for these CPUs.

I'll post some pics of the full configured system once I have it "completed".

Does anyone know if trim is supported in an onboard raid configuration (Intel c612)?


Thanks.

PS.: Samsung Pro 950 nvme m.2 drive is already here while the motherboard is still on the way.

I also have built a ze10 d16 ws rig also.. There was no thread so I mainly posted in
the Thermaltake X9 case forum. Seems to be two kinds overclock.net users 1) Show ponies
(Look how Fast it looks), 2) Folks who just want play with bench marks..

I am neither I just want to build the best damn rig I can, with the budget available.

Dual boot Linux or Windows, and lots VMs

2nd Side Shot
