No and no. I called Asus support, and they were only able to see when the warrenty was valid from and to by the serial/no, and it help up pretty exact to the production date. Either that, or they want you to mail support or fill out some sort of request, It's anything but customer friendly.
So newer version of Asus Z10PE-D16 WS is better then Supermicro X10DAX?
Asus has M.2 slot but speed is only PCI-E 2.0, so better is use pci-e adapter to get full speed of 960PRO NVME drive, same as Supermicro.

V4s support 2400 so go for 2400 definitely. I'm using 2400 with V3s and it downclocks to 2133. That way i can move to V4s when prices come down.

I'm using the X10DAX - see my thread

Also check out the Open Box thread I posted in the Deals Section - Open box items at Newegg are a great way to save cash and you might find a board you like.
Is possible to boot from pcie-card with 960 pro nvme drive on X10DAX?

From what I have seen around the web there are apparently some issues with Consumer Samsung NVME Drives on SM Boards. I'm using P3700 which works like a charm. There does seem to be a workaround though I can't comment on it since i don't a Samsung NVME drive. If it's on SM's list of approved drives it will work fine.

Samsung 960 PRO/EVO/SM961 M.2 NVMe SSD disappearance-after-reboot-or-bios-change workaround is to power cycle, bug fixed in PRO/EVO firmware 2B6QCXP7/2B7QCXE7 | TinkerTry IT @ Home

For what it's worth. I've read bios adjustments from both SM and Asus, they both corrected/included NVME as bootable drives, and or supported.
But yes riven, Z10PED16WS m2 is limited to SATA6Gb.
