    I installed my M.2 PCIe 960 Evo all my own lonesome.

    Definitely not a specialist here.

    Your motherboard manual only makes mention of M.2_1 disabling SATA ports (specifically SATA6G_2) when in SATA mode.

    It makes no mention of any other ports...

    The Samsung 970 Evo and the Western Digital Black are both pretty good M.2 SSD's. Just make sure you get the PCIe variant and not the SATA variant (if there is one).

    Yup, the FX553VD is absolutely compatible with 2280 M.2 NVME drives. The install process is extremely simple too. The only sad thing is that the M.2 slot does not come with an M.2 screw attached so...

    Idiot me just realized that after the BIOS update, the BIOS got reset to defaults and the default CSM state is DISABLED. Since my SSD was set up in legacy (MBR) mode,...
