I’ve been helping a friend who’s finally gotten around to build a new computer, which involves this motherboard along with the AMD Ryzen 3800X. He’s got a 2TB Samsung 970 EVO Plus NVMe for this machine as well, but it will not show up in the BIOS nor will the Windows 10 installation detect it either.
This drive was tested in slot “M2A” which ties directly to the CPU and slot “M2B” which ties off the chipset.
The BIOS was also updated to version F10, downloaded from their website and installed via Q-Flash within the BIOS. It originally came with version F2 installed.
That nor disabling CSM seemed to have fixed the problem. Nor did setting the BCLK to 100.00 like one place suggested seemed to have worked.
The bad news is this friend lives out of state (Nor does he have an account here, but this can change easily enough.), so he doesn’t have access to other components like I do in order to test everything thoroughly. Such as another machine to test the NVMe in or another NVMe to simply test in the new machine. So I’m hoping anyone here may have an idea on what to try next.
Full parts list of the components he has that’s been sent to me:
⦁ [CPU] Ryzen 7 3800x 8-Core 3.9GHz
⦁ [Motherboard] Gigabyte X570 Aorus Extreme
⦁ [Cooler] Noctua NH-D15
⦁ [RAM] G.SKILL Trident Z Neo Series 32GB (4 x 8GB)
⦁ [GPU] MSI GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER
⦁ [Drive] Samsung 970 EVO Plus Series - 2TB PCIe NVMe - M.2 SSD
⦁ [PSU] Corsair RM750x
⦁ [Case] Lian Li Lancool One Digital Black
