Which M.2 slot do i install my Optane module in?

 Share

Which M.2 slot do I install my Optane module in? I have an Aorus Z390 Ulta motherboard. No m.2 slots used (yet). Manual doesn't seem helpful on this, nor youtube.

 

Thanks!

Any of them, they all connect to the chipset so it doesn't matter other than appearance, they all got heatsinks, no difference at all.

Any m.2 2280 slot (the longest m.2 slot), not any of the slots.

The 4th M.2 slot is key E, hidden and pre-occupied so the 3 M.2 slots that can be accessed all take 2280.

Optane use 2 pcie 3.0 lanes btw.

Not the typical 4 normal pcie ssds use.

I may be wrong.

Thanks all! LTT forums kick ass over r/techsupport. So, not the short m.2, either of the longer m.2s, perfect, thanks!
