KCDC Planning to update today, I don't expect much, just hoping the CPU temps stay the same.

ThrashZone Hi,
Yep 9940x really needed it already flashed seems okay but haven't really set memory like I used to either
Been having more fun with nvidia drivers more than anything
Newest is pretty bad

430.64 seems okay.

ThrashZone Hi,
If you ever use a U.2 port it will affect sata port availability.

Awesome, thank you so much!

I have 3 hard drives plugged into my SATA ports, and in the BIOS there is an option to run bottom two PCIex slots at x4 and that in turns disables Ports 5-8. That option is on Auto, and all the drives work.

My question is, does the M2 drive have any "lane sharing" considerations with the SATA drives? Should they be plugged into certain SATA ports and not others for maximum speed? Or are the SATA ports all 100% independent from the M2 slot.

Thanks!

Hi,
Doubt you need to worry about pci-e lanes unless you plan on sli

I also doubt you're missing anything just a new shinny toy to play with
I'm waiting for 3950x and maybe even tr3 personally.

Currently using 42 lanes, I'd like to add two more nvmes to the hyper m.2 card, setting gpus to x8 x8, but that pcie slot won't go x16 without removing a gpu from what I understand. Also decided not to spend any more money on components and went for new monitors finally. I'd have to change other components just to use another motherboard, so I'll avoid the snowball for now. Pretty happy with what I have.
