    Does this looks normal?

    That shorter contact is normal. It is exactly the same on my 280X. There should be another one just like that on the opposite side of the connector.

    Primary ram slots

    No. Your RAM is in correct slots. Those arrows point to pin 1 (or 0, depending how you like to count) of the two chips that are there.

    Should i replace my ssd?

    Then you don't have anything to worry about. The only reason to replace the drive is if you need more capacity, or it dies of some other reason other than NAND wear. This particular one can do 70. Some other 120GB may only do 40-45, others may do upwards of 100 (mainly older MLC drives).

    SP 580 120 GB has endurance of 70 TBW (Terabytes written). Crystal Disk Info will tell you amount of Total Host Writes, which will tell you how many terabytes out of 70 have you used up.

    Blue themed z68 motherboard.

    Well, blue themed MB were mostly Asus and MSI also has couple in the early Z77 and Z68 boards. https://www.techpowerup.com/161854/msi-unveils-its-complete-line-of-intel-z77-h77-b75-motherboards-at-cebit

    Will a SATA III SSD work in a SATA II motherboard?

    What program uses wps to measure speed of what?

    What are wps?

    Will a SATA III SSD work in a SATA II motherboard?

    Yes it will work. Only the speed will be reduced for sequential reads and writes. You will still see the benefit of improved system responsiveness.
  10. Yes it will. It has 3.0 connector next to the 24pin.

    10gbe for my Motherboard

    The network card uses x4 connector, so you can plug it in only into the top most slot, or the third one, as that one is open to accept longer devices, as it is physically and x1 slot. If you install it in the last slot it probably won't have enough bandwidth to do 10 gigabit, so it will run slower.

    What kind of M.2 SSD does my port support?

    That is an M key M.2 connector. Theoretically both SATA and NVMe drives should work, but I don't know if ASUS disabled some functionality.

    I am so confused I need help ASAP!!

    Ahh yes, @WoodenMarker is right. It is just a backplate that needs to be removed. Now that I looked at the picture more carefully, I saw that bottom right thread has fallen out of the motherboard. On the other hand, other three threads fill those holes almost perfectly, so they look like they were molded in the motherboard itself.

    Since you have OEM board, it uses non standard mounting for the cooler. The one you removed used screws to screw into threaded holes in the motherboard. The Alpine is made for normal mounting holes, without threads, and uses push pins instead of screws for mounting.

    Sata ports

    OK. Unplug everything from the on board and try connecting just the new drive to all 4 on board ports. Keep the raid card with it's drives installed. If it still doesn't boot, I would guess the board disables on board controller (or just some ports) when it detects than an external one is installed. There should be a setting in the bios to re-enable the on board controller. But if it is like I said above and the on board controller is disabled, than it should just be like it doesn't exist and ignore anything connected to it, rather than making a PC boot to a back screen. -------------------------------- On a side note, quote people when you reply to them so they get a notification.
