Hello guys!

Today on pc part picker I have a compatability issue that says

"The motherboard M.2 slot #0 shares bandwidth with a SATA Express port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA Express port is disabled."

SSD im using is a is a Samsung 950 PRO 512GB M.2

Now here is the parts that im gonna be using in my build http://pcpartpicker.com/list/p6GFGf

I am concerned that my mobo would be hindering nmy ssd performance of my pc.

I am asking is this a false statement or a real issue?

If so a real issue, then what motherboard would you guys suggest for me.

Thank you for taking your time to read this and I hope to you that you are having a safe day/night!

Its not going to throttle it, however as mentioned above one of the SATA ports will no longer function. That is normal based on how boards share bandwidth. If you didn't use an M.2 drive you would use a SATA port anyway so its not like you are really losing anything.
