View Full Version : Apex XIII M2.2 Slot Not Recognizing SSD

Just installed this beautifully crafted board. M2.1 works at PCI 4 specs but unfortunately the motherboard slot M2.2 is 'dead'. The SSD works fine when swapped into the M2.1 position. CPU is a 11900K. Amazon tech 'support' suggests returning the board for replacement. Any help is appreciated. Been using ASUS for over twenty years . .

you're using the m.2_2 slot for pci-e 4.0? tbh I wouldn't use that one since it downgrades the lanes on the pcie16x slot down to 8x. Either way, if you tested it out and it seems to be dead, then RMA seems to be the go-to
