I have a few questions regarding my build



Asus Maximus 9 Apex

Intel Core i7 7700k LGA 1151

Corsair Vengace RGB pro DDR4 3200mhz

WD Blue m.2 2280 

Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black edition


So the first question


My heat sink fan was stepping over my new ram

Thus i had to move the heatsink fan to the left and not the usual right side

I made sure to follow air flow thus since the fan went to the left the fan had to be flip over.

Is a heat sink fan positioned to the left side ok?

First time I had to do this on a build.



Second question

I have a new m.2 drive than I want to install windows 10 on via usb

I don't see the drive when it comes time to choose a drive to install windows on

I know there might be a  bios setting but I'm not sure which one.

My mobo is Asus Maximus 9 Apex and the m.2 does not attach to the mobo direct but to a dimm 2 slot next to the ram.

My bios is up to date but still, windows won't find the drive.


last question

My ram is corsair vengeance rgb pro 3200 MHZ DDR4 2 x 8 gb

In my bios I see Capacity 16384 MB - voltage 1.200 v and frequency 2133mhz.

Should this be at 3200mhz and not 21333 mhz ??? do I need to change something in the bios? I figured this would be auto detected?



TY alll!!!
