    Advise on BIOS settings: for 2X NVMe drive?

    Hi Guys,
    I am looking for a little bit of advice.
    I Have an Asus Hero_X M/B
    I bought it with one Samsung SSD 960 EVO 1TB PCIe NVMe drive in it.
    It was installed in slot M.2_1 slot.
    The BIOS was set to Auto.
    I have just bought another additional Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB PCIe NVMe drive
    and installed it.
    I have changed the Bios to:
    PCIEX4_3 Bandwidth: X4
    M.2_1 Configuration: PCIE mode
    M.2_2 Configuration X4

    Question:
    Is PCIEX4_3 Bandwidth: controlling both M sockets at either 2x or 4x speed?
    Can you confirm I have the fastest speed set for the NVMe drive?
    I am not bothered that they are taking the 2 SATA controllers
    as long as I have read the manually correctly?
    Thank You..

    just leave all on auto, unless you have problems then look into whats causing it. but auto should be fine.
