Hey Guys,

Using PCPartPicker, there are some warnings that are coming up for my build. I am trying to have two SSDs and then two other large mechanical hard drives. Am I really going to have any issues with 2 of these NVME solid states using up the SATA 6.0 GB/s ports? And how will I know which ports to connect the mechanical hard drives to?

Motherboard: https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/Z390-DESIGNARE-rev-10#kf

Setup I would like:
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
Western Digital Ultrastar 8 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Western Digital Ultrastar 8 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive


Potential Issues / Incompatibilities
  • Warning!1 additional SATA 3 Gb/s compatible port is needed.
  • Warning!Some Intel Z390 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using 32 GB RAM modules.
  • Note: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.
  • Note:The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled.

Will I still be able to use all these drives without suffering any bottlenecks?

Probably yes.
There are 2x M.2 ports, and 6x SATA ports.
You need to refer to the motherboard user manual to determine the allowable configurations.

I think I figured it out, if someone could take a peak and confirm that I am understanding this correctly.

Am I safe to add the mechanical hard drives to the SATA3 1, 2, or 3 ports?

I took a screenshot of the motherboard manual and added some notes. See link below:


Thanks for confirming!
