M2C_SB & M2M_SB "?Share Bandwidth?" with PCIEX4_1 and SATA 3 2,3, OK??? What-dat-are meaning "Shared" as there's an x=not available in a chart within the Users Manual. Please comment, does this mean Bandwidth Sharing, or if an M.2 device is installed and the PCIEX4_1 and/or SATA 3 2,3 devices are installed all is Hozed.

From the specs sheet.
"The PCIEX4_1 slot shares bandwidth with the M2C_SB connector. The PCIEX4_1 slot becomes unavailable when a device is installed in the M2C_SB connector " SO if you install an M.2 drive in that slot the PCIEX4_1 slot will be disabled.

For the M2M_SB slot the chart in the manual shows that if you install a pci-e/NVMe m.2 drive then sata ports 2 and 3 will be disabled(not available), if you have no drive installed or use a sata M.2 drive then the ports will be available.
