I'm getting a B450 Tomahawk Max, Seagate Barracuda Compute 2TB, and a 970 Evo. After I add the 970 Evo, the compatibility note "The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled" pops up. I don't quite know what it means, and I am new to this stuff. What should I do to fix it? Is it perhaps incorrect?
It doesnt matter what one you pick the TOmahawk Max is what does it. Because M.2 SSDs' require you to plug it in directly to the MOBO to utilize max speeds it disables you from adding 2 Storage drives.
Edit: Specifically Sata port 5 and 6. Unless you plan on using 4 storage drives which im sure is not needed you do not need to worry at all about that
Yes, you will be completely fine, just make sure you plug your HDD Sata Cable into SATA Port 1. 5 and 6 wont work at all but you will have 1-4 plus the NVMe for a total of 5 Storage devices capability instead of 6
