Oh bugger, I misread the info. the key features list dual nvme pcie support, not M2..

my mistake, bit misleading though but nevermind.

Feel free to delete this thread entirely.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Board spec wrong
« Last post by shadowsports on November 11, 2019, 03:16:57 pm »
Hi all, when the 7th gen intel cpu came out I purchased the z270 gaming k3 motherboard. It says on the official gigabyte website that it supports dual nvme drives in raid.

Today I purchased a pair of nvme drives only to find out the board has infact got only 1 nvme drive slot.

How do you install 2 nvme drive with 1 slot ?

Now, since I purchased this board with it supposedly having 2 nvme, if this has been mis speced on the site, I feel I should be entitled to a replacement board which meets the specification that is listed. Or is it just tough luck as I have only just noticed now a few years down the line.

Thanks

Greetings,
Please show us where it says support for 2 m.2 drives?  I only see one mentioned in the specs.

Storage Interface

Chipset:

1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe x4/x2 SSD support)
2 x SATA Express connectors
6 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors
Support for RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10

* Refer to "1-7 Internal Connectors," for the installation notices for the M.2 and SATA connectors.

Motherboards with Intel processors / Re: Advices about M.2 on Aorus H370
« Last post by shadowsports on November 11, 2019, 03:12:26 pm »
Hi guys,
at the moment I'm running windows 10 on sata SSD crucial MX500 250ĢB and it works fine. Exploiting a drop of price I've just bought M.2 XPG SX8200 PRO 500GB; by the reviews it seems to show a good perf/$

Now my questions:
- My mobo is AORUS H370 gaming 3 wifi and my cooler is Noctua NH-U12S with an additional noctua 120 pull fan. The M.2 slot is between CPU socket and GPU (zotac 1050ti mini), rather close to the cooler. I wouldn't like to take cooler apart just to place M.2 beacuse my temps are fine. Do you think i could be able to place M2 without removing cooler? It's my first M.2 drive Here's 2 pics about

In many M.2 guides you find on youtube they place M2 before the cooler.

-The M.2 comes with a sticker-heatsink but my motherboard has already its heatsink (you can see it in the pic). Which heatsink should I use? The Aorus heatsink has a blue sticker that i think I should remove and it is 110 (xpg is 80) but I can fasten it on M.2 ssd with screw while xpg heatsink is just glued. I understood xpg doesn't run so hot anyway.

Thank you very much

Greetings,
I suggest you not complicate your life.  Get some cotton balls, some Q-Tips and isopropyl alcohol.  Remove the cooler and install the drive.  Apply new paste and be done. 

Trying to maneuver with the cooler installer might be possible, but you're going to be hating life (or yourself) one way or the other.

I agree. That doesn't sound normal.  I would pursue it further.

All other GIGABYTE products / Installing Windows 10
« Last post by dennis on November 04, 2019, 02:32:20 pm »
My GB-BXBT-2807 currently is running 32 bit Windows 7 Pro.
Its BIOS is AMI F3 date 18/06/2014
I'd like to install Windows 10 Pro, however trying an 'upgrade' to Windows 10 failed and Windows put the computer back to its old state.  Don't remember an error message.
I had Microsoft check the computer for Windows 10 suitability some time ago, they reported I should update the BIOS to AMI F6.
I'd rather not try a BIOS upgrade unless really necessary.
Has anyone successfully made a 'clean install' of Windows 10 with the F3 BIOS?

Thanks

If the card is defective and only a month old, you have an RMA option.


This is the answer from German Gigabyte support:


Dear Sir/Madam,

There is no warranty claim which was agreed that the card would be replaced. We do not replace any products for first RMA only repair. If you want a refund, please contact your original supplier of the graphic card. The test result claim that the sound of the water pump is on a normal noise level and not considered as defective.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Best regards,
RMA -Team

They sent me the card without any explanation, they only replied when I asked for an e-mail and kicked me out of the chat and closed the chat.
THIS COMPANY IS ONE GREAT JOKE, I WILL NOT BUY ANY MORE FROM THIS COMPANY.
