    Rampage VI and M.2 SLOTS clarification

    Hello, I'm just looking for some clarification on these m.2 slots on this motherboard, PLEASE correct if I'm wrong, but my understanding
    is the following......

    1. M.2_1 (ENCLOSED SLOT BETWEEN PCIE SLOTS) (SATA/PCH ONLY ) (CAN BE MIXED WITH INTEL SATA III RAID)
    2. M.2_1 (DIMM2) (SLOT ON RISER CARD FACING THE RAM) CPU OR PCH
    3. M.2_2 (DIMM2) (SLOT ON RISER CARD FACING POWER CONNECTOR) PCH ONLY


    The reason I'm asking is because I would get varying results on some benchmarks when using the M.2_2 (DIMM2) slot
    for my 970 pro, but when I use M.2_1 (DIMM2) the results are more consistent when using the CPU . My guess is that
    only one slot that can work directly with the CPU, and that is the M.2_1 (DIMM2) slot ??

    -thank you !!!!
