you can't. 

but i would assume this drive will be fast enough for a casual user. 

Fun Fact: The Meshify c is the best case to ever exist.






B550m TuF plus.

Hyper x rgb 8 gig stick. (MJR or CJR  i still don't know lol).

1650 super.

What? There are no such settings in bios.

the ssd will run as fast as it is advertised.

It should be set to x4 by default, maybe unless you've just got an obscene amount of other PCIe expansion cards installed.

If you install your ssd into the first m.2 slot nearest the cpu then it should already be running at full bandwidth. No configuration required


To control the mode it operates at enter bios Advanced tab > Onboard devices > M.2_1 should be set to Auto. Setting it to sata mode witll run at reduced speed
