(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.

Have nice day


That's a nice case (and looks bigger than I thought). It seems there are more options nowadays for full figure computer cases with horizontal configuration. I certainly prefer that and mine is also horizontal (MM U2-UFO). Wish you could come up with more clear pictures showing your rig. Good luck.

hi! I have just bought one of this fantastic motherboards smile.gif but I cannot make the m.2 slot works at x4 speed with the Samsung 950 Pro 512gb frown.gif I installed the nvme drivers from samsung's site and it´s still not working at x4, the read speed is about 860 only frown.gif

Thanks and sorry for my poor english.

Thanks, stevef9432203. smile.gif The Thermaltake case looks just as good as the Caselabs Mercury S5 albeit being much less expensive. I know it's not made of aluminum like the Caselabs's cases but, I don't think the twice the price is justified. The design and look is just as good.

To nullReal: are the bios/firmware and the Intel RST driver in your system most up to date? I am still waiting for the last part of the new build to arrive (I am waiting for the ram). Then I can confirm with you what speeds I get from my nvme drive (256GB, Samsung Pro 950).

yes, my mobo came with the lastest bios, the 3204 and the Intel RST I will check it now, but I think yes too. By the way, I think only the d8 ws has the x4 option.... frown.gif

Following my price comparison between the two cases, I just found a link which claims the TT X9's design must have been taken from the Caselabs' one:

(I'm not sure I completely agree with the conclusion.)

I think I'm after discovering the same problem. Its not the first time I've used M.2 but I've never had to consider it being a bottleneck.

Current Results:
836 MB/s Read 764MB/s Write

Magician:
Link Speed Current 4Gbps Max 8Gbps
Link Width Current x2 Maximum X4
Bandwidth Current 8Gbps Maximum 32Gbps

From the manual:
Quote:
M.2 Socket 3 Supports Mkey.... and M.2 share bandwidth with the SSATA Port 4 [SIC]

The motherboard features the M.2 slot which shares bandwidth with the SATA 6Gb/s port and the PCIE Gen2x2 and is dedicated only to the operating system.

BIOS:
Blank in NVME info area

I'm using SSATA2 for my mechanical drive so its not conflicting with that. GPU in PCIE4 should also not be conflicting. So are we just stuck with buying a PCIE M.2 mount?

I checked the Asus website and realized there is a difference between the m.2 mount on Z10PE-D16 WS and Z10PE-D8 WS. The m.2 mount on Z10PE-D8 WS is pci-e 3.0 X4 while on Z10PE-D16 WS, it is only pci-e 2.0 X2. That explains it now. I actually didn't need all the memory slots on Z10PE-D16 WS ( 2 x 32GB LRDIMM on order). I chose Z10PE-D16 WS simply because it was less expensive! I sometimes think the Z10PE-D8 WS was perhaps a better buy. I only prefer the configuration of the mofset heatsinks on Z10PE-D16 WS.

D16 includes the IPMI by default so that had me right out the gate. I've ordered a Samsung adapter card so I should be at full steam ahead by the end of the week.

Yeah, you´re right. The d16 is less expensive because is older I think but the problem is the m.2 socket... it´s older and worst than the d8 one frown.gif I have just received this pcie card for my 950 pro m.2 card: http://www.delock.com/produkte/G_89370/merkmale.html
