Well, I did finally get my network and printer working.  The printer issue was my own fault.  It's helps a lot when the networked printer is powered on.  ::)  :duh:  And networking the computers is a little bit of a hack where you have to create a new user group and setup permissions.

Ok.  But windows 8 support is suppose to end at the end of this year, isn't it?  Anyway, I got the virus known as windows 10 and it's been one hell of a learning experience thus far.  I have to admit though, I am enjoying the speed of this new rig.

 You could maybe see if there is win 8 (8.1) support might be cheaper than buying 10 outright. I'm not sure what you can get an 8 pro licence for these days or if there are drivers. I have found few issues with 8.1 I really don't mind it compared to 10. I think the one laptop I did with that type of controller for the SSD (wasn't a 2.5") did it in a clean install of 8.1 no issues seeing the drive but I might have used Acronis to prep the drive for an OS. Ad new drive option under tools when booting from disk.

Well, for the most part, I could have installed windows 7 to a regular HDD or SSD and it should run.  But, there are no drivers for any of the onboard hardware.  Such as lan card, sound card, bluetooth and wifi adaptors.  And windows 7 won't be able to download updates on computers using newer processors.  And then, there is the lack of initial support in windows 7 for NVMe controllers.  You would have to pre-install the drivers while preparing to set up the OS for install.  It's just one big clusterf**k to get everyone to move over to windows 10.

Well, I finally stepped up to windows 10 and so far, I am not impressed with it at all.  So far, I can't get my network linked printer to work, even though it IS supported in windows 10.  Network workgroups has been removed from windows 10.  Instead, they want everyone to use the cloud?  That freaking retarded.  And, seems Bluetooth support is nil to say the least.

 You can still do an upgrade from a win 7 install to win 10 (w10 install might deactivate when drivers are installed-not sure, potential problem if you have no win 7 drivers), might have to check if you can do it with booting from usb and putting in a win 7 code during install. You might have to search youtube to find if it can still be done.

 I could probably throw in a (good) used HD I don't have the money to pick up a new one.

It's been some time since I started this thread but the day has finally come to start the overhaul.  So for starters, this is what I wound on settling on.

Intel Core I7 8700K 6c/12t 3.7 ghz 4.7 ghz turbo
Asus ROG Strix z390-E Gaming
G-Skill TridentZ RGB DDR4-2666 32 gb "8x4"
Corsair H100i-V2 water cooler
Western Digital Black MVMe M.2 500 gb

I'm planning to reuse my case, PSU, GPU and most of my storage drives.

The problem has come down to, there is no official driver support for Windows 7 for this mainboard.  Soooo..... I will have to install windows 10.   :'(  And unfortunately, I don't have a product key for it.  Anyone have any ideas of where to find cheap windows 10 product keys?

If it is the drive going, better to replace it while it still functions than after it stops.   :duh:

I am in complete agreement with that.  By the way oneeyed.  That overhaul your planning with KT, is it going to include a new HDD?
