Is it true adding more NVMe SSD cards in the M.2 slot will disable SATA ports?

I just moved though and my room is much smaller so the gf said I had to put all my computer component boxes in the attic :/. I save all the boxes and documentation but I just figured I could ask someone who could answer it quickly rather than go up the ladder and through all those spider webs.

I have the manuals for the last 4 'boards I've used on a book case beside me.  :D

 

... just me, then...?


Did you test boot it, before you built in into the case?

WHY NOT...?!

Because what M.2 slot disables what SATA port is not standard, every motherboard does it differently, so everyone answering would basically be doing what you could've done in the first place - check your specific motherboard's manual.

 

Unless they were familiar with the board and already knew the answer.

 

No one is forcing anyone to come answer my question but there are people who enjoy helping others and don’t mind.

 

If someone asked me a question I already knew the answer to I would just answer them to help out so they didn’t have to go through all the hassle of finding their mobo manual and looking through 50 pages for an answer someone else could answer in 30 seconds.

I think you'll be pretty hard-pressed to have someone with a Z390 ACE respond to your thread in a timely manner.

And even then, how many people with a Z390 ACE (or any other board for that matter) actually know exactly which M.2 slot would disable which SATA port when occupied?

So...you'd much rather have someone do the legwork for you?

Someone said if I put 3x NVMe SSDs in my z390 MEG ACE that it will disable some of the SATA ports..is that true?

 

If so, what’s the point in including them if they can’t all work at once?

If I may offer some genuine advice, it would be that the tone of your original question (and subsequent answering) is what triggers this rather unfriendly atmosphere in the thread.

 

Firstly, instead of posing a genuine question, you start by doubting advice given by somebody else who has actually already given the correct answer. The premise of the question is founded on disbelief rather than for example: "you tried it, and it still worked". The second part is intrinsically fine, but does demonstrate the lack of a broader perspective other than your own use case.

 

The latter parts of the thread where you go on to describe that reading a manual is too long, not bothering to get to the physical manual, or looking for a copy online just gives the impression of general laziness which isn't particularly inviting for a positive response.

 

How you use the forums is of course up to you, but remember that those answering are also human beings. And so if you ask questions that could be easily answered by reading the manual, expect that also to be part of the answer provided.
