Question Add an NVMe?


Oct 13, 2014
I have an Z390 AORUS ULTRA MB and wanted to find out how many hard drives I can run at the same time.

I currently have 4 SATA drives and wanted to find out if I can add one or two additional NVMes.

My 4 hard drives are connected to the lanes SATA 0, 1, 2 ,3, 5 (I think I use 1 extra lane for power), and I also have one external HD.

Below is a link to the manual with page 20 referencing the lanes.

Can I add one or two more NVMEs? I am thinking of plugging it in the M2P slot as it's more accessible.

I have an RTX 3080 on the PCIEX16 slot.

Thank you for your help.
