I would wait, since that's a nice Z97 board.

I was planning on it anyway, I was just waiting for that new trident Z ram to come out already.

Any reason for choosing x99 over the z170 platform?

I need 8 cores for recording, rendering, and laying games simultaniously:P its been a huge drag on my youtube channel waiting for stuff to render before I can even play a game more than 10fps. z170 is too expensive for the i7's. you might as well get a 6 core anyway.

I figured you probably knew what you were doing but just had to ask :)

Check in the bios if everything is checked on "boot devices",see if the cable might not have fall out of its place

swap your SSD with another HDD/SSD to verify port 

using USB keyboard and mouse or PS2 keyboard?

check to verify the grounding tabs from the I/O are not interfering with any of the USB connections (mine were so distorted and tweaked) .

I doubt it's my SSD because I can't even get into the bios. And my other SSD in the system has w10 on it as well so it would try to boot from that. I but its the motherboard. Oh well

 

i just ordered the new parts for my upgrade and I'll send this in for RMA tomorrow. Not sure what I'm going to do with this board anyway

system hangs are hard faults and depending on the actual fault, some weird s**t happens. a known good drive can TS if that circuit is the link or issue. doesn't have to boot to OS, just to UEFI.

Unplug your drives. I have had the same issue crop up with certain SSDs from time to time. It's worth at least trying unless you're really just looking for an excuse to upgrade.
