    Z370 Hero and nvme config

    Hi,

    I'm building a system with a Z370 Maximus Hero wifi board. If I put my 500gb 960 Evo nvme into the top slot with the heat spreader does this disable the first SATA port? If so, should I attach my 3 ssd's and 2 hard drives to SATA port 2-6?

    I assume the nvme will not effect the gpu in the top slot running at 16x too? It won't kick it down to 8x?

    Interesting. I read a review on this board and it said the top m.2 slot will disable the pcie port 1.

    Using slot 1 (top slot) doesn't affect anything.
    Using the bottom slot 2 will disable SATA port 5 and 6.
    You can find the explanation in the user manual.

    Top slot will disable sata port 1 only when used in sata mode, pcie mode dosnt affect anything.
