Boot from NVMe Compatible X99 Mobo?

This question is not answered

I recently purchased an ASRock Taichi motherboard for my build and about 1 out of 20 time it will recognize my Samsung 960 Evo m.2 NVMe drive. I RMA'd for a replacement with the same issue so I am now in the process of returning it.

Can anyone recommend a motherboard that is know compatible with my NVMe drive as a boot device?  I read mixed reviews about all of them.

My build is...

  • Core i7 6800k (LGA2011)
  • Corsair Vengeance 32GB (16gbx2)
  • 1x ASUS 1080GTX Turbo
  • EVGA Supernova 1000W
  • Samsung 960 EVO 500GB NVMe SSD

I appreciate any recommendations.

It has been quite frustrating getting the SSD to be recognized. With the ASRock Taichi, it will recognize and boot normally sometimes. Most times it doesn't know the drive is there.  ASRock says the board is known compatible with the drive, as well, but I doubt I happened upon two faulty boards.
