For the sake of relevance, Asus have two versions of the board:
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z370-G-GAMING/
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-STRIX-Z370-G-GAMING-WI-FI-AC/

The one you have and ultimately reviewed is the latter version which should be mentioned in the title.
 


Thanks! It doesn't help that the Amazon link leaves out the parenthesized portion but sells the Wi-Fi board, or that Asus goes both ways in its description :D
 

Well, if your drive cage overhangs the board it could be a problem. I can't think of any hazards though.

Oh, I can! If not careful, a pulled cable could wrap around and snap it or damage the socket. It's the stupidest and most irresponsible design!

If you must, you can in theory get an M.2 slot extension ribbon cable and relocate the NVMe drive. But they're over $60. No way, that money is better spent on another MB with two M.2 slots that lay flat like normal.
 

Sometimes a manufacturer has to make space somewhere. When the option is upright or none, upright is "more options".
