[SOLVED] System compatibility


Sep 26, 2015
Hello, i am looking some advice regarding a compatibility message on pc part picker. I am planning on introducing a PCIe ssd to my build the Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD. However when i go onto pc part picker it gives me a compatibility message '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.' Can anyone explain what this means?, as i think of it as its gonna disable my current sata ssd and hdd?.

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/pv2LXv - this is my current build with the implemented new ssd to show the compatibility message
