Need help upgrading!!! will nVME M.2 support in my motherboard?

Go to solution Solved by JohnDongus,

Yes as long as its in the NVME m.2 port it will be fine.

Hello All

 

I have a core i5- 7600k with Asus Z270 Strix F gaming motherboard and 16 gb Ram. I already have a Samsung 850 Evo 250gb M.2 SSD (Not nVME type it seems). I installed it in the second slot since the first slot in the support nVME type alone (found that out after buying). Its working fine for over a year, but the 250gb is not sufficient for recent space hungry games and applications Now I am planning to add another 500gb m.2 nVME type SSD (Mostly Samsung  970 Evo).  I am not sure whether there will be any compatibility issue with board. I don’t have in-depth knowledge on these storage devices, so please bear with me.

 

Can I use both the drives M.2 drives together in that board or will it be waste of money, if I get one? Can you guys please guide me?

 

Note: I have an external 4TB hard drive for secondary storage. This purely for OS and installing games and applications.

 

Thanks,

Prince
