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...
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.
Seems like this is not an infrequent ASRock issue, or at least NVMe in general. A few suggestions in those threads
The Asus website shows how to install an NVMe raid into a Maximus IX (which is LGA1151). I'm going to get the Strix and I'm possibly planning on an NVMe raid so I hope it works on that board. They have a number of LGA2011 boards. My hope is that if one current board is NVMe savvy then all the current boards will be.
