that's kinda what I was thinking. Doesn't make sense that it will show up in the Bios but wont show up for a storage device

Hows the H100 doing? I have a very similar build (same case, CPU, GTX 1080, etc..) Im currently running the H60, but it cant quite keep up with the temps since im over clocked, what are you getting with the H100?

still doesn't explain why I can get audio out of the case ports, but no sound from either the MOB or sound card ports, any ideas on that?

yes, I had my head phones plugged in to the sound card, made sure it was the default, and the sound was breaking up, and seemed rather weak. plugged the head phones into the MOB jacks and swapped default and got no sound at all, moved the head phone jacks to the case ports and I have decent quality sound coming out, but that's it. im at work at the moment so I wont be able to ,mess with anything until I get home

the card appears to be fully inserted in the PCI slot, and I installed the drivers that came on the disc with it, I haven't went to their website yet to see if there is a more up to date driver yet, that was going to be my next step.

how's the H60 doing? I'm completing my build this weekend and my setup is very similar to yours, had a few people tell me to ditch the H60 and get something bigger

is it referring to the sata ports? basically by using an M.2 stick, you lose one of the sata ports, that's all. not a big issue unless you plan on populating each port

just curious why I wouldn't roll with a 1080, the 1060 or 1070 would be cheaper but im looking for top performance, being able to run any game at max setting and it look the best, aside from being in 4k of course.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/RmmZM8, that's everything ive accumulated so far, just ordered the CPU and the M.2 stick this morning, just need to figure out what ram to get. I was leaning towards DDR4-3200 G-skill trident Z, but then I read its for the Z170 chip set, so that's why im asking what I should get

that's my biggest worry, is I want to make sure that the i5 wont outdate within a year, I want longevity out of this build.

ohhhhh ok, that whats I didn't understand, when I read that I assumed it meant I wouldn't be able to plug anything into the SATA ports, so if that's the case id much rather go with an M.2 over an SSD

I'm just asking because I don't know, but why should I go with the i7 if im using it for more than just gaming?

yeah I was wanting to run at M.2, but that mother board wont allow you to have the M.2 slot populated and also have anything plugged into the SATA, so im opting for a 250g SSD along with a standard 1TB. Thanks for the info, im just gonna roll with the i5 with some over clocking

Not exactly what I'm gunning for, I was looking at it if I should spend the extra $100 to get something newer that will stay relevant longer, or if the i5 is good enough to last me a few years

ehhh that wont work well for me as I've already purchased most of what's on my list, the only components that I haven't bought yet is the mother board, CPU, GPU, and ram. thanks for the input though, and im open to running a AMD, but don't really want to go to a 1080ti, do you have any input on that?

Thanks! that helps a lot! My reasoning for an SSD was solely to have windows loaded on it for faster booting, and the 1070 wont have any issues running everything at max?
