So I am looking to switch from my Samsung 850 evo @ raid0 to raid0 of 950Pro drives, the thing is my current motherboard only has 1x m2 slot.
So i need a new motherboard aswell ( I realise a PCIE adapted would do but my OCD wont like that ), is there anything I should be lookin for when I want maximum possible speeds, or will this board do the trick ?
All i really want is maximum performance possible, and this was the cheapest board to offer 2x m2 slots. Dont really need a soundcard or anything since I use an external one.
So I thought I`d just sell my ASUS Z170-A and my 6600K and move to GA-Z170X-UD3 and 6700k 

 

outofmyheadyo  Seems like a good MB to me. Checked the specs and it has 3 x PCIex 16 slots. If you're NOT running SLI then you could put a boot M.2 on an expansion card and run another from the M.2 socket. The reason I mention SLI is that using the M.2 socket will disable one of your PCIex 16 slots (generally slot 3 or 4). I bought a sabertooth X99 which only has 3 slots as well and i'm annoyed because i wanted another M.2 on an expansion card and now can't have it :-) But otherwise i think your current rig will be good.

as far as i know, an x99 chipset can support up to four PCI-e based SSDs, in the case of my RVE,

one m.2 in the m.2 slot, an Intel 750 in the bottom slot, an Samsung 950 pro in the 3rd slot, and potentially the 4th one in the 2nd pci-e slot.

Can it support more than 4 PCI-e ssds, probably. the Samsung 950 pro in my case is only pci-e x4, but resides in a x16 slot. The question is if there's a PCI-e card that supports four m.2s at the same time, since you could use up all 16 lanes out of one slot if there's such an adapter card like that.

All of you that have 2kMB/s and the like, are you running it on a PCI-E slot and or running on an m.2 slot BUT on a chipset earlier than z97 right?

Mines on a M.2 slot on a z170 chipset and am getting the full speeds.

pretty much anything that at least supports PCI-e Gen 3 at x4 link.

which is z77, z87/z97, z170, and the HEDT platforms of x79 and x99.

most of the older platforms like z77 (first intel mainstream with native PCI-E 3) you run the m.2 in an adapter card and put it into one of the PCIE slots thats Gen 3 and linked to the CPU, not the chipset which is limited to Gen 2 speeds.

The newest z170 chipset is the only one that can support the full speeds straight off its chipset lanes since it can support Gen 3 speeds, having 20 PCI-E lanes vs only 8 PCI-E lanes of Gen 2 speeds in older chipsets.

x99 may only have the older chipset features in that its still 8 lanes of Gen 2, but it does have 40 or 28 lanes of Gen 3 straight from the CPU itself, depending on if you either have the 5960x/5930k or the 5820k.

Except you also need NVME to use the 950 PRO, and NVME support only goes as far back as the z97 chipset through BIOS updates.

hmm..... isn't the NVME driver for samsung can be installed no matter what mobo you have, at least using it as storage? As long as said mobo has PCI-E Gen 3.

using it as boot drive is a different story, there's this link on compatibility:

That driver is just so the SSD will be optimized with NVME and Windows.

NVME is a protocol that the motherboard needs to support. New Skylake motherboards (z170 chipsets) have NVME natively. Z97 and X99 chipsets required a BIOS update to add NVME support to the MB.

Motherboards with older chipsets do not support the NVME protocol.
