Hi was not sure where to stick this thread but here goes. i have a Asus Z97 Pro Gamer motherboard and at present have a GTX 970 and a SM951 256GB NVMe drive on a Asus add-in card installed. i am wanting to add more strorage to the system
by adding a Intel 600p NVMe drive with another asus add in card. now from what i gather that will mean that i have taken up all the PCIe 3.0 lanes ( GTX-8x sm951-4x intell 600p-4x). if thats the case will that mean that i can't use the remaining sata ports for adding anything else, or does that run off the chipset separately? bit confussed if thats correct or not hope you can help
