How do I check if it doesn't share PCI-e bandwidth with something else?
Sorry binning two 2600k now and reply from my phone, sorry for typos etc:)
That's more or less the second option I suggested, a PCI-E card/slot, but I didn't check the drive you were asking about. M2 slit can be/take either SSD or PCI-e and there is no dedicated slot for M2 on the board, but connecting to a PCI-E, as I suggested is an option. The thread you linked to is pretty informative on that.
Just checked, it seems (can't guarantee!) there is no sharing (except sata w esata on one port), but I am not sure about the speeds of PcI-e slots on the board, so that you get good speeds (your link to the thread suggests that it does, though, right?). Someone else would need to step in on the specs, I guess, or you can revive that nVme thread:) Fyi, see last line below:
