Kingston support says ask gigabyte, and gigabytes support says, it supports nvme ssd booting but not sure it supports kingston kc1000 Pcie nvme, check comatibility list. but the list is not updated since 2016??

So i need some comfirmation from someone who has tried it.

Curious..  are any Kingston NVMe's listed on the compatibility list?  (Sorry I haven't looked).  If not, and you have not purchased yet...  I'd stick with something more mainstream..  Samsung, Intel, etc.  Safer bet.   

You may not get a response here.  I haven't seen any posts from people using Kingston for storage.  Memory yes, but not storage.  That's not to say it won't work, but you may have to be the one to test if the brand is not on the QVL.
