Just a quick question about my mobo. No issues, very happy actually because it's still running strong. I just have a question about the PCiE slots.

Firstly, I'm happily running 3x Samsung M2 drives on the board. Also have (currently) a GeForce GTX1070Ti running on slot 1.

What I would like to know is whether I can fit one of the Pcie M2 adapters into one of my remaining 2 slots? I haven't been able to find out the bus speeds of my 2 remaining slots, but if it slows down the M2 drives I would like to install later, naturally it won't be worth doing.

Thanks for all and any advice.

Andrew.
Kind regards,

AJ

It should be fine, your slots don't share any lanes with the M.2 slots on the board
so their lanes are independent.

Looking at your board specs:

The bottom slot supports bootable NVMe drives so I would install your adapter
there.
