    There is probably a way to turn off that logo and save a few seconds at post. Setting your SSD first in boot order should also help.

    Yes mate I have the SSD set as first boot device but I cannot find where to turn off that Asus screen that tells me that the BIOS is either F2 or DEL mine's F2 so I don't need that screen.

    The other little thing that I find odd is that the RAM beep takes an awful long time to sound when booting.

    In bios:

    Boot>Boot Settings Configuration>Full Screen Logo

    You should be able to increase/decrease time to display or disable it.

    Thanks SIW2 I will have another look at the boot section as the other stuff is rather technical for me and they use numbers and abbreviations for settings that frankly are really for the techies.

    Ok have done a bit of looking around and yes the board does not support NVME.

    Now being a bit simple/singular minded I see the M2 drive as a hard drive and slipping it into a tray that has SATA connections surely the machine would see the M2 as a normal drive or am I missing something here. As I said a drive is a drive whatever format it comes in unless the manufacturers have craftily built some technology into the M2 which prevents it from working on any board that does not have M2 slots and not work from a SATA connection.

    I ask because why would there be such things as those SATA to M2 adapters if not for boards that do not have an M2 slot?? is this just another method of wringing more money out of consumers such as myself??

    The M.2 I've seen had a hole at the opposite end from the contacts to enable securing it from movement, doubtful the contacts end will plug into a SATA data-only socket. The SATA drives also have a separate power socket.

    Actually Berton I have seen these adaptors that I thought I could just mount in a tray and fit into a bay in the case just like a normal SSD then just hook up the M2 via the existing hard drive cables.

    Won't make any difference whether a M2 drive is mounted in an adapter like that or not as the board doesn't support NVME, so the drive regardless of how fast it is will not be any faster than your current SATA drive as it will be limited by the speed of the SATA port it is connected to.

    Thanks stormy I thought probably that the board is reundant to todays technology and being a dedicated cynic I cannot help but feel that this NVME tech is just another cash cow ready to be milked for all it's worth. I would go so far as to say that even NVME will be a thing of the past in the future and at the rate of technology development in the not too distant future.

    The board is redundant for the latest technology, but fills a niche for people who do not have M.2 interface on the motherboard. As stormy13 stated, the transfer rate will be limited to the interface speed it is connected to. The better option to connect an NVMe drive to an older system would be via a PCIe 3.0 card, with single and/or multiple NVMe card support.

    NVMe, or Non-Volatile Memory express, is latest transport protocol for storage devices. In the PC world, we've started out with IDE (more accurately ATA), moved to AHCI (gave us SATA) and now NVMe transport protocol (M.2). With each of the the transport protocol changes, the transfer speed for the new interface increased. While the NVMe will become "old news", it'll take some times. At least based on the fact that in the latest MBs, there's still IDE interface/protocol support....
