I recently completed this after my prior machine motherboard failed and it was mini-itx and i was tired of the hardware limitations So I picked up almost everything I wanted just a few minor changes to make like paracord cables 2 more SSD's and HTC vive corsair k95 rigb keyboard with MX brown switches Corsair scmitar mouse and a nice set of open eared headphones from Audiotechnica ATH-AD900X's or a pair of Grado 325's then finally Objective2 ODAC+Amp.

There's a couple of things I still wan't to do first is OC'ing my CPU to 4.0Ghz and was wondering how to go about that as I've only really dragged a slider bar before for oc'ing. I would also like to set up a ubuntu partition on my samsung 950 pro m.2 but I don't know if that particular distribution supports NVME and if it does how would I got about making said changes. As I would really like to be more familiar with that OS rather then just being able to open a terminal in it to grab wine to play league of legends and world of warcraft, So Much of my Steam Library is becoming Linux compatible it is GREAT! I hope to see continued and increased support for games on Linux! Yes I know my cabling sucks I'd change it id I did not already plan on replacing all of them at some point with custom wrapped paracord cables when I order a C70 plexi side panel with out the holes and maybe I will sprinkle in some more SSD's for another Raid 0 array and then swap out every single fan and the 2 fans on the Radiator for those amazing noctua fans that have the magnets on the end with an inner copper ring in the fan housing so as they spin around the magnetic resonance cancels out over 90% of the sound they make there pricey though but I've already gone this deep don't plan on stopping. I am addicted to high performing properly cooled silent computer's really help's in the immersive Movie and Game experiences yeah you were wodering what that DVD drive was for weren't you well mystery solved have quite the movie collection but I plan on getting a DROBO …
Ubuntu works just fine on nvme. Just install it where you like. Do NOT set discard option in your fstab but use fstrim instead. Scroll down to the how to enable trim part.
