Rust crashing on startup after New PC

Just got a new motherboard, processor, and RAM. Launching Rust in default(dx11) causes it to crash before the launcher even appears. Launching in dx9 causes the launcher to load. Launching the game from there causes a crash to desktop nearly instantly. Specs posted below.

MB: Asus X99-A 2011-v3
CPU: Intel i7 5828k 3.3 GHz
RAM: 16 GB 4x4 Ripjaw
GPU: GTX 960

Previously I had a Dell motherboard from 2008, an Intel E4800, and 8 GB of RAM so I’m at a loss for why the game won’t launch for me now.

Forum searching for an issue like this is like looking for a needle in a haystack and google wasn’t much more helpful.

EDIT: I’d like to mention that I reinstalled the game already, and both times it seems to go strangely fast for 3 MB/s. Like 25minutes max probably less.

Did you ever get this resolved? I got an Alienware Alpha for one my kids, and it crashes on start up. Tried the usual (re-install, integrity check, etc.).
