So basically I am building an ITX system and I'm using an MSI B450I Gaming Plus AC. In the manual clearly says M.2 2280 (key M). I couldn't find a lot of M.2 with this kind of key so I looked up some builds. And I see people putting a WD Blue 500 GB M.2 with and B & M key. Am I missing something here ?

I know this one is compatible I am asking why the WD Blue M.2 Is compatible since it is B + M and the board is only M
