    Maximus X Formula with 2 NMVe M.2 PCIe Gen3 x4 drives

    Hello experts,

    I have purchased a Maximus X Formula with a 500GB 970Evo NVMe M.2 for the OS and a 1TB 970Evo NVMe M.2 to store my games. Both are PCIe Gen3 x4. When I first boot my system, I will have only the 500gb installed to install Windows 10, and then once this is done, and drivers are installed I will add the second 1TB drive.

    My questions is, do I need to make sure that both drives are configured for PCIe Gen3 x4 modes in BIOS or will the setting default to this? I see that both sockets support PCIe 3.0 x4 or SATA mode. Obviously I won't run either in SATA mode correct?
