    Using m.2 Slot on Maximus Ranger VIII

    Hi all!

    I recently buyed a new SSD for my gaming PC but I'm not even sure if my plan to install works. Please could you help me how to configure it in the BIOS?

    I plan to replace my current SSD with the Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1TB. But I read in different forums when I install a m.2 SSD some SATA ports doesn't work.
    It would be nice if I could install the new m.2 and using PCIe x4 to get the full speed. But does this affect my current RAID configuration?

    Thanks a lot!


    Here is my current SATA configuration:
    DRIVE ASUS BW-16D1HT SATA, Blu-Ray RW (90DD01E0-B30000) (SATA 6G_1)
    SSD Samsung SSD 850 Pro 1TB, SATA (MZ-7KE1T0BW) (SATA 6G_2) (main system Windows 10)
    HDD1 HGST Ultrastar 7K6000 (6TB in RAID1) (US7SAK600) (SATA 6G_3 in RAID1)
    HDD2 HGST Ultrastar 7K6000 (6TB in RAID1) (US7SAK600) (SATA 6G_4 in RAID1)

    Here is the other system configuration (I think not quite helpful for my question):
    CPU Intel Core i7-7700K (Kaby Lake) @ 4,7 GHz (cooler: Noctua NH-D15)
    MB ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Ranger (BIOS 3802)
    RAM Kingston HyperX Predator DIMM Kit 16GB (2*8GB), DDR4-3000, CL15-16-16 (HX430C15PBK4/32)
    GPU Gainward GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Phoenix GS (11GB)
    PSU be quiet! Straight Power 10-CM 500W ATX 2.4 (E10-CM-500W/BN234)
    CASE Fractal Design Define R5 Black (FD-CA-DEF-R5-BK)
    Display HP Z27n LED-IPS (WQHD 2560 x 1440)
