    @Caledon Ken,

    Here's the mobo showing the heatsink plate over the M.2 slot.

    That's a bad looking board Shawn. Very nice choice. That board just seems to be saying

    So Shawn,

    Are these new boards still requiring that if you use an M.2 drive you loose a pair of SATA ports? I'm guessing so. Good thing the board has 6 SATA ports so you can add other drives.

    I believe most boards give 4 PCIe lanes from the Chipset. You can use 1 M.2 drive without losing sata ports. If you use 2 M.2 Drives you will lose 2 sata ports. My board only has 4 sata ports. I am using 2 M.2 drives without a loss of anything, so there are different configurations on some of the boards.
