  1. You will need to install windows onto the M.2 correctly, here is a handy guide I used: The NVMe M.2 drive should be the only storage drive connected. NVMe SSDs do not appear within the BIOS until Windows creates the system partition with the EFI Boot Sector. Your M.2 SSD contains UEFI driver information within the firmware. By disabling the CSM module, Windows will read and utilize the M.2-specific UEFI driver Go into the BIOS, under the boot tab there is an option for CSM. Make sure it is disabled. Click on the secure boot option below and make sure it is set to another OS, not windows UEFI. Click on key management and clear secure boot keys. Insert a USB memory stick with a bootable UEFI USB drive with Windows 10 Setup* on it, USB3 is quicker but USB2 works too. A Windows DVD won’t work unless you’ve created your own UEFI Bootable DVD. Press F10 to save, exit and reboot. Windows 10 will now start installing to your NVME drive as it has its own NVME driver built in. When the PC reboots hit F2 to go back into the BIOS, you will see under boot priority that windows boot manager now lists your NVME drive. Click on secure boot again but now set it to Windows UEFI mode. Click on key management and install default secure boot keys Press F10 to save and exit, Windows will finish the install. Once you have Windows up and running, shutdown the PC and reconnect your other SATA drives. *You can obtain the ISO file here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
  2. I had this issue when I tried to install windows a few days ago, after having ubuntu on my M2, and I followed this handy guide: The NVMe M.2 drive should be the only storage drive connected.

      Replaced my CPU cooler with a 280MM NZXT X63 Kraken, added a new M.2 500GB SSD. and 16GB more RAM,

      Feeling happy!

      then update your profile specs too

  4. Pretty much all the time, i'm the go to from anywhere between "Oh the internet just dropped" to, "The TV isn't working", I don't mind it too much though
  5. It should be relatively okay, just check the temps, and if the IPad feels too hot to the touch, give it some time offline to cool.
  6. I have the same motherboard and PSU! They're pretty good!
  7. I'd highly recommend a Corsair T1 Race or T2 Road, I've got a T2 Road and it's been extremely comfortable, the roller coasters are fantastic for a laminate floor.
  8. From the Gigabyte website Support for DDR4 3600(O.C.)/3466(O.C.)/2933/2667/2400/2133 MHz memory modules, It looks like without overclocking you might be only able to get up to 2933, try tweaking the BIOS system memory multiplier slowly until you have a stable boot at 2933.
  9. What BIOS version are you running? Try to default the settings, and update it. It might be a bug in the BIOS version.
  10. From the specifications on the MSI website it does look like it will only support up to 3200MHz DDR4 Memory modules, you potentially could put 3600MHz modules into the slots, but they would underclock to 3200MHz, and it's not recommended.
  11. Technically it should fit fine, but i'd wait for the specification to be updated to say that it can natively support the new Ryzens, it might just need a BIOS update.
  12. Have you tried checking event log between the times it restarts? maybe it'll give you a code for why it's doing it.
  13. I quite like the ASUS B450 I'm using a TUF B450M and it's fantastic.
  14. I'd recommend giving your C:\ drive a scan with agent ransack or treesize, might be able to view big files more clearly and remove anything taking up big space.
