Sorry guys, Im new to posting and asking Q´s.

Tozzo what type of ram did you use for this build?

Did you run into any problems in the process?

Also did you have to connect PCIe cord with cable to motherboards display-port?
If you are only using Thunderbolt for UAD soundcard I was thinking display-port is not not necessary or?

Has anyone tried the new thunderboltex 3 card? I have an x99 deluxe and think this would be the icing on the cake!!

Any advice why my bootable usb does not fire up?
Only relatable setup that I found in bios was sata mode ahci.

I'm trying to building a small multimedia pc with Sierra.
Should it work with the following setup or should I stop trying?

HDD: Kingston 120 gb ssd
MB: Asus p8h67-i mini itx
CPU: Intel i3-2100T

Tony, does this mean the Asus Z97m-plus should work fine?

the only thing I can see different is Realtek ALC887 audio instead of the 892, for which there are drivers in Multibeast.

Josh King
