Yes


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

Yes you can use the Samsung 970 EVO plus..read page 21 of your manual for specifics:  https://download.gigabyte.com/FileList/Manual/mb_manual_ga-z270x-gaming5_e.pdf 

Which States:

"Installation Notices for the PCIEX4, M.2, and SATA Connectors: Due to the limited number of lanes provided by the Chipset, the availability of the SATA connectors may be affected by the type of devices installed in the M2M_32G and M2P_32G connectors. The M2M_32G connector shares bandwidth with the SATA3 4, 5 connectors. The M2P_32G connector shares bandwidth with the PCIEX4 slot. Refer to the following tables for details."

Do you really need Sata 4 and 5?  And the other on only shares with PCIEX4...your GPU should be in slot 1.

i have 5 sata inside already :( and don't want to lose 1 hdd)

is better to put it on that slot and lose sata 4 and 5 ? or is the same to put it on slot with PCIEX4 (yes the gpu is on slot 1 x16)
