I'm having a few problems. I have 2 hard drives, the SSD which I installed the operating system on and the 2TB HDD. I set the 2TB HDD as Drive E but it says System, Reserved (E and only has 99.9MB available.
The other problem I'm having are the SATA connectors inside the case. The Asus Maximus motherboard came with 4 SATA connectors but they don't click when you plug them into the hard drives. You can pull them out with very little force. I can't put the side of my case on because it rubs up against them and they come right out. I think it's weird that all 4 have a loose fit in my hard drives. I hope it's not the hard drives.
Other than that, it seems to be running nicely. I don't know if it's just me trying to get used to the monitor but it's very contrasty. The green in the Google Chrome icon is sharp lime green. Probably need to mess around with it a bit.
I'm sure I'll run into other problems but that's about it for now.
Thanks for helping me get this thing built. Hopefully someone can help me out with the problems I mentioned.
