    M.2 C drive-use M.2_1 or M.2_2 socket?

    I've had my new rig for over a year and have always had C drive M.2 installed into the M.2_1 socket, even though it's labeled Disk 1 and not Disk 0 in Disk Management which I would have though.

    Is there an advantage to using one socket over the other for the system drive?

    Thank you in advance.

    that depends. What drive is it. Sata based? nvme? What's the board (as placement of the socket can have an impact on heat)

    but speaking purely socket wise, none whatsoever. Windows doesn't give a rats ass what the "label" is.

    Sorry I didn't clarify. I understand the label only identifies.

    I meant to ask is if there is an advantage using one on board m.2 socket (m.2_1) over another (M.2_2) for C (M.2 drive).
