I have an asrock z170 pro4s motherboard and I need help with understanding where I should put the samsung 960 evo.
I will install windows 10 and ubuntu on the samsung 960 evo and boot from this device.
Which slot will give me the faster speed, putting the ssd in the M.2 slot or using a PCIe adapter and putting it in the second PCIe slot, this is a PCIe express x4 lane because my gpu is in the PCIe express x16 slot.
If I put the ssd in the PCIe slot, will it reduce the speed of my gpu?
My motherboard manual says "If the Ultra M.2 Socket is occupied by a SATA-type M.2 device, SATA3_0 and SATA3_1 will be disabled."
I shouldn't have to worry about those two being disabled because the samsung 960 evo is an NVMe M.2 device, not SATA right?
