Quick question! I have the Tuf Mark 1 x299 with 7820x and I recently installed an M2 drive. It's working fine, windows installed on it boots up nice and fast. I have a single GPU only, no other PCI devices.
I have 3 hard drives plugged into my SATA ports, and in the BIOS there is an option to run bottom two PCIex slots at x4 and that in turns disables Ports 5-8. That option is on Auto, and all the drives work.
My question is, does the M2 drive have any "lane sharing" considerations with the SATA drives? Should they be plugged into certain SATA ports and not others for maximum speed? Or are the SATA ports all 100% independent from the M2 slot.
