    Z490-E Gaming mobo and 2 NVME drives

    Hi

    I have 2 NVME drives I want to use on this mobo. One as a boot drive and one as a game storage drive. *
    Does it matter which slots occupy the NVME drives? The manual has me confused.

    Thanks!*

    Well XpertXP,

    Make sure that you install the NVMe device for optimum speed configuration (x4). It's up to you rather you want faster reading/write times for Windows or for games. The slot is M2_2. When you insert the second NVMe component it will be working in PCIe mode as well (M2_1). In the manual it's page "xi".
