Hey. This will take a little bit of time to explain so bear with me.
I have a pretty beastly computer, I bought it for a purpose but I didn't end up using it for that purpose.
Here are the specs:
Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 1600x Six core Graphcis: NVIDIA GEforce GTX 1060 3GB HD/SSD: Samsung 960 EVO SSD 500GB cooler: H100i liquid cooler RAM: Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 (or the version which was compatible with my mobo) Mobo: Crosshair VI HERO Case: Corsair - 750D Airflow Edition ATX Full Tower Case Power supply: HX1000i
I am currently running windows. I am wondering if I could put linux as the main operating system on my computer, the reason I ask this is because of the Software that comes with my motherboard, as well as the iCUE (Corsair utility engine) and the NVIDIA drivers.
My liquid cooler doesn't work without iCUE downloaded. Also, wondering about all those drivers from the motherboard cds.
Another problem unrelated is that the motherboard only has one slot for USB and the case has two plugs, one for USB 3.0 and one for USB 2.0, so i have the 3.0 plugged in which is fine, except only one of the case USB 3.0's work. annoying as ****.
Tl;dr Thinking about running linux on my main pc but worried about drivers and my liquid cooler functioning.
