Yes, you have one PCIe M.2 connector just above the first PCIe x16 slot. It is for PCIe (aka NVMe) drives NOT SATA M.2. So it will give you a very fast OS drive.

edit: see page 26 of your MANUAL. Read the notes, as its use does block using two SATA ports.

And which m.2 do you recommend? I'm between Corsair MP510 or HP Ex 920.
