Hi! I got an
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO (WI-FI) S-1151 a Z390 model and have just bought
ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 Card V2
and inserted 3 Kingston A2000 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD
M.2 2280, PCIe 3.0 x4, NVMe, 3D NAND
and running it all with an Intel Core i9-9900KS Processor 8 core 5ghz and PCI-express configurations 1x16, 2x8, 1x8+2x4

The problem I have now is that my computer got 1 M.2 slot on the motherboard (windows) and then 6 SATA drives, 3 are SSD And I needed more and instead of buying new and throw out old I found the Hyper M.2 thing, I looked around and it sounded promising, I wasn't out for any RAID configurations but just wanted the extra NVME M.2 slots, so I put in 3 of the Kingston in it, slot 1, 3 and 4 as the Asus site says and plugged it in the motherboard Pci-e slot 2, under the 1080Ti GPU And Bios/Windows only finds 1 of these 3 Drives, the retailer offers no support, they just told me on the phone it would work as both motherboard, GPU and now this Hyper m.2 was bought in the same place

Does anyone see the issues here? why I can only find 1 of the 3 M.2? or the solution to how to fix it? Bios and everything is updated

If you've used another pcie slot then soemtimes you'll find that pcie connected drives will not work.
Somewhere in your motherboard manual it should explain exactly how many mNVMe drives you can have depending on what pcie slots you are using.
