[主機板] Looking for x99 mb suggestion

Now using asrock x99m/3.1 + Samsung 950 pro M.2, but something BSOD, maybe cause of driver problem (it works perfectly ok when using Intel 730 SSD

I am looking to buy another X99 mb (prefer itx>matx>atx) + E5 for Server/NAS/Plex purpose
Was looking at the asus x99 matx , it comes with dual Intel LAN which is good but found out M.2 can only operate at PCIEx2 which is a waste of m.2

Or I should wait for the x99 refresh ?

Pls kindly suggest.

Look like got not much to choose from for MATX
Asrock X99M/3.1
ASUS X99M WS USB3.1
EVGA X99 Micro 2
Price wise Asrock~=EVGA>ASUS

or any up coming x99 worth to wait for?

ASUS X99M WS m.2得10Gb/S
應該發揮唔到950pro

    maybe just go for PM951, which is cheap and good for the purpose(RMB8xx for 512GB)
honestly speaking, i can hardly feel the different between Intel 730 and Samsung 950 Pro@Asrock X99M which i am currently using now
And the NVMe driver cause a lot problem
so i might just using SATA SSD for the upcoming server

For Asus X99M-WS you can consider a PCIE to M2 adapter

Are you running Win7 or W10?

    I think I will try to run Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 if I can get Plex and file sharing(WAN and LAN) running just fine or Windows 10 can do the same purpose as well
