I think the motherboard supports only SATA m.2s, but I'm not sure. I saw some BIOS update that said that they improved the support for NVME and PCIe device compatibility. : https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/b150-gaming-m3
I have the latest BIOS version.
Here are the links to both :
SSD :https://www.xpg.com/en/feature/596/
MB : https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B150-Gaming-M3/Specification

Thanks!
The MSI website you linked, in the detailed specifications section, says SATA M.2 only. NVMe isn't supported.
