    Cool Maximus IX Hero and NVME M.2 question

    I have the motherboard as stated in the title, it has two NVME M.2 slots, one A the other one B

    My NVME drive is in slot B, but want to know if there are any performance benefits to putting my NVME m.2 drive into slot A, which is nearer to the CPU

    At the moment, I dunno whether its worth the effort to put it into slot A as the Heatsink is bulky, therefore may require me to take it off the CPU

    Hi,

    No there is no interest from a performance point of view, on the contrary, if you have only one M.2 SSD and 2 slots available, you should always put it as far from the main areas of heat (CPU, GPU, RAM) to avoid throttling of it, so in your case, the M.2_2 slot is the optimal M.2 slot choice.
