X570 M.2 placement

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have a ryzen 3600x and Aorus X570 elite so there are 2 m.2 slots...

M.2A ( cpu ) and M.2B ( x570 chipset)

 

While I would like to put m.2a there are clearance issue due to cpu heatsink and m.2 heatsink...

 

Cant find YouTube video comparing m.2 pcie4x4 speed between m.2A(cpu) vs m.2B(chipset) ...

 

If YouTube cant help I figure people at LTT

its a storage device, putting it at either shouldn't make a difference.

This is true, but I would be mindful that in some motherboards, using certain M.2 slots will deactivate particular SATA ports on your board, so make sure you check your manual and are aware of any SATA ports that could be turned off by your M.2 placement

if im not mistaken, the sata ports will only be deactivated if you are using a SATA M.2 drive in the M.2 slot
