    It was off topic, we both using Gen x3.0 M2 devices, in any case, in the first slot. The first slot is directly linked to the CPU and is the preferred slot for boot device on Ryzen 3000 series. My off topic point was if your using older Ryzen 2000 or 1000 series you can use, Gen x4.0 device, at Gen x4.0 speed via the x570 chipset, according to the specifications.

    For your Mass storage device idea, (Example I have two 840 evo's joined to together for games)
    Can I suggest using the largest SSD's you can get (if total space is the objective), even multiple, that you could link together in windows, as they are not boot drive, to make one huge storage device with decent transfer rates. This would be cheaper than M2 and able to be made larger than any existing M2.

    I've done this with 1800x hdd's (which my network media server) total single drive of around 16 terra bytes.

    You link them using computer management, disk management (snap in).

    So are these temps normal on this board at idle?

    Ah Right on, that makes sense, I follow you now.

    I've never linked 2 drives before but that sounds sage offhand. Is there any performance gain or degradation if you link 2 differant drives? (My gut says get 2 identical drives rather then trying to link my existing 860 evo to my existing WD blue (Both 500 gig)?

    Two identical drivers linked, gives you consistent speeds, at whatever they deliver (in read / write operations).

    Mismatched drives linked, gives you the speed of each drive when being written to, as it not an array, if evo was first till full (assuming just write operations) run at it's speed then wd blue at it's speed to full. They don't help each other for anything. Read depends on which drive the data was written.

    There is software raid option (windows 10 pro or enterprise versions), which was slower than real raid but mixes the performance. I've not used this in ages.
