Gigabyte MU70-SU0 motherboard query

I just got an Intel C612 Gigabyte MU70-SU0 motherboard. I will be installing an E5-2699-V3 or an E5-2679A-V4. PSU: Seasonic 650W platinum, quadro P620, 6x samsung evo ssds.

I am going to use it for a proxmox server. I am fairly new at it and this will be my test setup. I've got some questions you might help with.

1. RDIMM DDR4 modules up to 2400Mhz.

Contemplating to get a 32GBx4 RDIMM DDR4 2666Mhz Samsung 32GB sticks 2Rx4 (M393A4K40CB2-CTD). Would there be an issue the motherboard downclocking it to 2400mhz? Or would it be best just to get the 2400Mhz sticks. The reason I opt to get the 2666Mhz because of availability and price.

2. There is an mSATA key on this board but the orientation of the screw is at the far side. I haven't seen an mSATA with the screw hole located on the side. Any recommendations?


3. PCIE bifurcation.

I don't see an option in the manual stating about PCIE bifurcation. I opt to use PCIE card with 4x NVMEs. Is it possible the motherboard supports it or perhaps someone in the forum have this motherboard? I've searched around but the information about this motherboard in some forums is almost non-existent or maybe I haven't found it yet.

4. Any other tips on how to set this thing up? I have an X99 E WS board and this board has some features that I am not yet familiar with.

Thank you and looking forward for ideas on this build
