Is there a 'preference' for which pcie slot ?
Either pcie 1 ...or pcie 4 ..?
I am beginning to get the picture... @arochester
's links were correct after all, it would seem that the nvme card will support 'boot'
I just found the specs for the actual card....HERE
- 2 x PCI Express 3.0 x16 Slots (PCIE1: x16 mode; PCIE4: x4 mode)*
- 2 x PCI Express 3.0 x1 Slots (Flexible PCIe)
- Supports AMD Quad CrossFireX™ and CrossFireX™
*Supports NVMe SSD as boot disk
....thanks mate !...I just spotted your posts.
I have the case open....and I am fairly sure I could park a Mack truck in there !
I do like to make my research accurate, and seeing both you and I both found the same info, ...it is therefore accurate
I was a little concerned at one stage that a boot loader may have been necessary as per @brickwizard
It is quite amazing what a good nights sleep can do !!!!....I was suffering from kgiii syndrome last night....too much wine....too little rest.
It is a good mobo. Despite the fact that it now approx 7/6 (?) years old, it continues to tick the boxes !!!
I have upgraded m choice of nvme to:
Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD 250GB - M.2 NVMe Interface Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND Technology (MZ-V7S250B/AM) : Amazon.com.au: Computers
.....combined with :
EZDIY-FAB NVME PCIe 4.0 Adapter, M.2 NVME SSD to PCI Express Adapter with Heat Sink, Only Support PCIe x16 Slot,Support M.2 SSD 2230 2242 2260 2280: Memory Card Accessories: Amazon.com.au
What say you, @Alexzee
