Hi everyone!!

Picture how its will be placed: View: https://imgur.com/a/pffmn9S

And i have some questions:
  1. This settup is correct and compatible?
  2. How hot will get 970 EVO if use it for OS? (I readed its can get very hot and need heat sink)
  3. Nvme 970 Evo will effect video card pci lines?
I know nvme will not give me big difference casual pc using, compare to standard ssd.
I use 2 m.2 ssd because whant less cables in pc case
This motherboard support 1 standard m2 ssd and 1 nvme if i correct.
And compare standart m.2 ssd (250gb) to nvme m.2 (250gb) price is only 15 usd more for evo 970.

Your setup is correct:

  • 6 x SATA 6Gb/s ports

  • 2 x M.2 slots (Key M)
    • M2_1 supports up to PCIe 3.0 x4 and SATA 6Gb/s, 2242/ 2260/ 2280/ 22110 storage devices
    • M2_2 supports up to PCIe 3.0 x4, 2242/ 2260/ 2280 storage devices
    • Intel® Optane™ Memory Ready for the M2_2 slot only
"SATA2 port will be unavailable when an M.2 SATA SSD module has been installed in the M2_1 slot."

Be Quiet! Pure Power 11 CM 600W (y)


I don't think storage heat will be an issue in this setup.

Monitor your hardware with this after it's up and running.
