    Default Build Advice End of 2015 ASUS X99-A/USB 3.1

    Hello,

    I am just now starting to gather the details for my next build. I code and game (flight sims and occasional other games FPS or strategy) along with video editing. I upgrade about every two years and I usually attempt to get the latest. I will probably build out the unit over the next 6 - 8 weeks.

    1. I am curious if the Asus X99-A/USB 3.1 MOBO with the M.2 slot can handle the 512GB size (Samsung SM951 512GB AHCI)? As best as I could I researched this but was not able to find an answer. I downloaded the manual but couldn't find a size limit. Also, I already know I might have to jump through a couple of hoops to install Windows 10 on the M.2 SSD Memory.
    2. Suggestions welcomed

    Thank Stephen, that was very helpful. Didn't really address the size of the M.2 but I think I will be alright with the 512GB.
