    Maximus Viii Formula adding a second NVMe Drive

    Good day all

    I am really desperate right now as I cannot seem to fin the answer I am looking for or how to solve this issue I am having.
    Maybe you tech guru's could help me.

    Current System

    CPU - Intel 6700K
    Mem - 64GB
    OS - Windows 10
    1 Graphics Card (PCIeX16)

    Disk 0 - Data Drive (ASMedia)
    Disk 1 - Data Drive (ASMedia)
    Disk 2 - Games (SATA6G_3)
    Disk 3 - Games (SATA6G_4)
    Disk 4 - OS drive (Samsung 950 Pro Socket 3 M.2 onboard)

    I am trying to ad a second nvme (Samsung 960 Pro M.2) drive to my current system.
    I cannot get my hands on a HYPER M.2 X4 MINI CARD anymore as ASUS no longer makes them and had to go for the Orico PSM2 M.2 NVMe to PCIe 3.0 x4 Expansion Card.

    Problem I am having:
    When I plug the Orico expansion card into the PCIex4_3 slot (the last one on the motherboard) this conflicts with the onboard m.2 drive.
    If I plug the Orico expansion card into the free PCIeX8_2 slot neither BIOS nor Windows detects the card.

    I am kinda stumped here as I would like to get this card working as I am running out of space on my drives.

    Please help

    Thank you
