I bought an ASUS hyper expansion card with a single M.2 on ebay for like $20 last year. Does the job, and gave me (at the time) massive storage speed increases, so it held my pagefile setup for quite awhile.




I merely mention this, because there are quite a lot of M.2 adapters out in teh wild, that are utter garbage.


Like above, stick with OEM adapters that are included with various motherboards. asus hyper kit is the only style I know of. perhaps there are gigabyte/msi/asrock/evga variants out there??

How many M.2’s can that card hold?

There is the ASRock ULTRA QUAD. However if you can't bifurcate your 16x pcie slot it will not work. So i would contact asrock and ask if the z390 Taichi supports it. But i think z390 supports it by default.

The Asus hyper might be cheaper. But i would match the brand with the board. Just in case you need their support.

So I’m going to assume by not using the m.2 slots on the board and using a card instead, I wouldn’t technically lose all of the sata ports then.

Yeah, But it will be limited by the 8x slots on your board. So a sata raid card might be a better option if you need more then 2 or 3 sata ports.

It depends upon which commodity is in more short supply PCIE lanes or SATA ports. The card will probably want an x16 PCIE slot to run at full speed with multiple M.2 NVME drives. That's a lot of PCIE lanes which, if you already have an x16 graphics card, you might not have available. But, if you have more SATA ports than you need, then it might be better to use the on-board slots that disable the SATA ports.
