I am having issues getting this to work as it needs the drivers for the Samsung Evo 960 but all I can find is an application file & not the actual driver files for installing from a usb. Any help?

M.2 drive should not need drivers of any sort The OS ie MS 10 should have automaticaly identified it as a storage drive. I recently built a friends Ryzen Pc it made the CD drive scream when installing it in less than 10 mins and no issues were detected, but always after OS install use the CD or current drivers that come with mother board as they add performance and stability.

My M2 was recognized by Win 10. But mine isn't Samsung either.

You may need to go into device manager and mount the drive, and then format.

Make sure to properly set the boot priority order for the m.2 drive.

It should require no drivers at all on install.

It gives me the error that windows cannot be installed due to having an MBR table.

This is a newly built system with just the m.2.

So I am up and running. RAM is at 3000, i7 7700k is around 4.6. Both ssd drives seem fine.

Now, just need to figure out these 2 quick black outs during restart. Old system did it as well. Windows doesn't load in seconds though, maybe 20 ish.

Now, speedfan only sees one fan even though there's 4 case fans. But cpu temps, is around 20 cel.

Coretemp shows cpu temps mid 30s.

speedfan is reading the wrong probe.

there's no way the CPU would run at room temp, unless you are using a peltier.

Ya, not sure wjhat's been going on with speedfan lately. But it's weird it doesn't even see any other fans.
