hi everyone


I own the ASUS ROG Hero VIII board, and I believe it supports both SATA and PCIe m.2 storage. 


Can someone confirm this for me, and that also this will work with it?

Yep, it has an M.2 slot


It's a good, but expensive MOBO. If you really need all the features that it provides, its a great choice.

So you don't know what you bought

An expensive mobo

And now about to spend unnecessarily on an NVME drive

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.
