ASUS IMPACT VIII & Intel 750 1.2 Tb Drive Not Detected

I'm using the U.2 connector on the Maximus Impact to connect a 750 1.2 Tb SSDPE2MW012T4R5

ASUS Device report indicates that they support SSD DC 750 Series-400GB. I was trying to consolidate all my storage into one device.

When the machine opens bios the drive is not recognized. When I boot to win10, it finds the driver that I downloaded from intel but says it's not compatible with my hardware.

This is my last stab before having to return this beautiful drive.

Can this be made to work? Am I missing something? why would this board support the 400GB but not the 1.2Tb?

Any insights would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Some Additional Info: CMS is enabled and primary boot option is set to UEFI only.

Cool, I will hold off on the return till I hear something from your tests. I'm not in a big rush, and certainly this would be a potent combo.

However it turns out, thank you for taking your time. Greatly appreciated

Intel 750, 1.2TB, U.2, boots just fine for me. Win 10, BIOS 1601

 

Do not forget to connect SATA power connector

 

Hope this helps

I'm embarrassed to say that i actually had a loose connection. the SATA Power connector was not completely seated into the power supply. Fixed this and the drive / mobo works like a charm. Really just an amazing combination. I can't believe how fast this is. So stoked!

Thank you to both ds4 & nestor_intel for helping me w. this!
