    Which M.2 slot on X570 MB?

    Putting M.2 into my x570 Strix-E gaming MB. Since the MB has 2 slots is one better/faster then the other? Thanks

    I used slot B (page 20 of the manual) purely because it is easy to get to. Other one gets covered by the GPU.

    One closest to the CPU is run by the CPU, the other is run by the north bridge (x570 chipset). Technically the CPU driven one should be faster (in practice not sure it really matters).
