Going to get a msi b450 pro-vdh plus mobo and a m.2 ssd with it so I'm wondering what would work.
is says it's a sata from my understanding but it also only has a key m
so what would happen if I used a corsair mp510 and what would happen if I used a WD blue 3d nand?
also whats the difference between sata 3 and 3d nand(the wd green and wd blue)?
 
A 'M' keying (pins 59-66) provides PCI Express SSDs with up to 4x lanes of bandwidth. Even with 2x lanes of bandwidth a 'B' keyed M.2 SSD still gives 10Gbit/s performance. You wont have any problem if you throw an nvme like mp510 and you get all its potential. If it was i believe a key E then you probably want to install there only an m2 with normal sata speeds or a wifi card etc.
