Well, I guess I'll try the f4 drivers for the board and see what gives...

Next:  see if I can rip it out of the AIC...

^  LOL, same issue, I think it's motherboard fault frankly...
^ Thanks for the quick reply.  Yes, I was able to install Windows with no 'load driver' option (I haven't done this in 10 years, I'll have to check on proper floppy drivers), I don't even know what would be the correct driver to load.  I'll report back any significant progress, else it goes back to Newegg next week...
I saw someone with this exact same issue previously.  I think this is the form factor officially supported.   (M'2 version) non-AIC

Your board doesn't have any PCIe x8 slots, But the card could probably run up to x4 in one of the x4 slots.  I'd check to be sure it didn't affect graphics performance, or create another resource issue. Is your OS installed to this device?  Were you able to select the UEFI: prefix during OS install?  We've seen this affect disk performance previously.  It may also be necessary to supply an AHCI driver via USB during install for the card to work optimally.

1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
 * For optimum performance, if only one PCI Express graphics card is to be installed, be sure to install it in the PCIEX16 slot.
2 x PCI Express x16 slots, running at x4 (PCIEX4_1 and PCIEX4_2)
3 x PCI Express x1 slots
 (All of the PCI Express slots conform to PCI Express 3.0 standard.)
Motherboards with Intel processors / G1.Sniper B7 Is there a new Manual

I want to know if there is a new manual on the way to reflect the F20 Bios Update.  When I flashed the BIOS from F4 to F20 there were many changes that I need to review.

Just checked, mine are working.  RealTek ALC1150 chipset.  Not sure of the driver version I'm using.  Try using a different output device, headphones for example to test.

Try resetting your BIOS to defaults, save, then change only the boot order (what you need for the system to start).  Do you have the ability to OC now?  Both of these boards should support OC.  So it must be your hardware (such as memory), or a BIOS setting you are using.  Best guess.  If you aren't performing a fresh install of the OS with each build...  start there. 
Hey guys, I have this board + this card: Plextor M8Pe AIC 512GB NVMe PCI-Express 3.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PX-512M8PeY.

PROBLEM: I am only getting ~1Gbyte/sec vs. >2.4 in my old rig (ASrock Z170M)
It's ALMOST like it's only using TWO lanes of the PCIe bus vs. 4X.
Card is in PCIEX8.

Any ideas why this could be running so slow?
Also, why would this card NOT show up as NVME device in BIOS?

I'm on f20 and boot to post is about 15 seconds. Did you ever sort the problem?
If you want to use the internal Graphics I think you may have to pull the gpu card out. I don't think you can use both. Blinking cursor may be corrupt bios. I would pull out the 960 card, reset cmos, boot with on board graphics only and see if you get to bios screen. If so, you probably need to set primary display to your gpu to use the 960 and not on board graphics. Sounds like the 2 are conflicting. Others with same set up here maybe able to help better....but that's what I would do to get bios access again. Hope it may help.

As I stated before I am able to access the BIOS, but only without the gtx960 being installed. As soon as I put it into the slot and reboot - hangs before entering BIOS setup, and monitor signal is only available via the Nvidia Card. I even set it to IGD only before and ran multiple BIOS configurations testing this while doing CMOS resets inbetween. I really hope to get this to work since on the software side it seems to get recognized by the Linux Kernel, i just cannot pass through the gtx960 as long as my Intel HD graphics is unavailable while the card ist präsent.
