So I'm stuck with a HDD installation cloned onto the 950... though I suppose I could spend a weekend at some point, clean it up a bit and then just do a fresh re-installation. Really the only thing on the 950 is Windows and a few apps, and a couple games. But about 95% of everything else is on my 850 Evo and my HDD.

I have issues installing Windows 7 on that board in general...i'm not even sure if I can get Window 7 installed on it. I gave up before. I suggest you move on to Windows 10...I like it so much better than 7 myself. Later tonight (if I get home lol) I will mess with it and Windows 7 and see if I can make it work and make a mini-guide with pics. :) My ASRock Z97 Extreme 6 with Windows 10 boots in ~6-8 seconds from power on.

Really?

Dude, thats wild. I've never once had a single problem with it. Runs beautifully.

I don't really have any intention of going to Windows 10 any time soon. I work for an I.T. company, we build and sell our own brand of PC, mostly to a lot of local corporate clients... and all we ever hear about Win 10 is complaint after complaint after complaint... we get more complaints about 10, then we ever got about Vista or ME.

I'll see if I can attach a 120mm fan between the GPU's and the HDD cage to blow some air towards GPU/board. thumb.gif

Dang, that's the opposite of what I deal with here. I'm a part time, freelance PC tech in Boca Raton, FL and all the people I work for end up having barely any issues with Windows 10 and if they do have something with it, it is usually an easy fix for me. Windows 7 on the other hand can get quite annoying. I love the DISM commands in Windows 8 and 10 now. Also, the restore feature works wonderfully.   

 

I got home a bit late tonight, so I'll have to play with my system when I wake up in 6-8hrs and I'll get back to you.

Just woke up and installed Windows 7 Pro x64 on the ASRock Z97 Extreme6. 

 

To make your Windows 7 USB UEFI bootable, you needed to modify the efi folder and add a boot entry for the UEFI. I had that in my Windows 7 install guide, here is the video on how: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDm8rWr3dV8

 

But to make it easier for you, just download this folder of the efi boot files and replace the efi folder at the root of your install usb. Link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/50323665/efi%20boot%20files.zip

 

Oh, and one thing you should note, the USB should be FAT32, not NTFS! So make sure you do that first. I have how to do that in my guide under: Make a Windows 7 Bootable USB Installer. Youtube video link: https://youtu.be/ZcSVVPbzIno

 

Next, make sure you have the NVMe driver read so the installation media can detect the NVMe drive. Here is the download for that: http://www.smartredirect.de/redir/clickGate.php?u=CHoN7d6s&m=1&p=3r6MDbeCf4&t=6QdegMhg&st=&s=&splash=2&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.smartredirect.de%2Fredir%2FclickGate.php%3Fu%3DCHoN7d6s%26m%3D1%26p%3D3r6MDbeCf4%26t%3D6QdegMhg%26st%3D%26s%3D%26splash%3D2%26url%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fmega.nz%252F%2523!BMkTTIYT!eGkmAYmjIHjtFChQ635ySy1P1f5MA9w2u_sXyIM9TBw%26r%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.win-raid.com%252Ft29f25-Recommended-AHCI-RAID-and-NVMe-Drivers.html&r=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.win-raid.com%2Ft29f25-Recommended-AHCI-RAID-and-NVMe-Drivers.html

 

I got that from this website: http://www.win-raid.com/t29f25-Recommended-AHCI-RAID-and-NVMe-Drivers.html

 

When you get to the install to a specific drive location, load the samsung driver. Then delete all partitions on the drive. Hit shift+f10 and open diskpart, clean the samsung drive, convert to gpt, exit. Then select the drive in the GUI, click format. After that 3 partitions should have been created. If not, then you messed up a step. If you get an error, just reboot and try the whole procedure over again. Sometimes Windows Installer still thinks the drive is MBR after you change it to GPT, a retry of everything will fix that usually.

 

For more detailed instructions on the diskpart thing, just look here and follow the Configure drive using an UEFI motherboard and GPT format portion. http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/seans-windows-7-install-optimization-guide-for-ssds-hdds  

 

If you have any questions, let me know. Now that I have it done tho, I notice two things. CSM has to be enabled and my powered off to desktop boot time is 18 seconds. Windows 7 sucks for fast booting. :/ lol

Here's a guide I made:

How to install Windows 7 on Samsung 950 PRO = http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/how-to-install-windows-7-on-samsung-950-pro.785498/

Has any company (or simply Samsung) made any aftermarket kind of cooling for this SSD?

I was planning on adding heatsinks to it, but realized with the 2nd GPU right on top of that SSD, there's simply no space for anything there...

Any solution for this? Worse case scenario, if it won't affect it's lifetime, I guess I can just let it be and keep it running at those temps. tongue.gif

My temps are 30c idle and 42c at load with a few heatsinks and thermal tape, makes a huge difference. if you have half an inch of clearance you can make them fit::

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00REFOM3A/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019MV1TAC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

only issue is you have to move last heatsink slightly to the right and cover about 80% of the chip to make screw slot accessible.

Same heatsinks I have (although I paid less for them on eBay). I attached mine with just thermal paste and it works fine (Gelid Extreme). I attached the stick first then attached the heatsinks, 4 side by side, and it is a perfect fit. (same temps)
