I've been trying to figure out if this M.2 Adapter - https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX77058 [ASUS Hyper M.2 Adapter] would work with the Tomahawk x570. Been discussing with a friend

On the manual, it says "For single PCIe x16 expansion card installation with optimum performance, using the PCI_E1 slot is recommended."

Somewhere in the manual, it says PCI_E3: PCIe x16 slot (PCH) I believe means that it is controlled by the chipset and says 3rd gen AMD ryzen is at PCIe 4.0 x4

Wanting a total of two M.2's on the MOBO and four more m.2 filled in the adapter in raid.

In short:
The expansion would be best ran on slot 1, GPU in slot 2, or vice versa.

I'm just wondering if there would be any issues running with these specs?

CPU: 5900x
MOBO: X570 Tomahawk
RAM: 32GB 3600Mhz
PSU: RMx 850
GPU: 3080 MSI Trio
Storage:
2x MP600 Gen.4 M.2 - 1TB
Expansion card: - TBD
Most likely SN750's / 970 Evo (Or if my friend is wild enough, more MP600's)
