Hi to all,

i'm going to buy a MZ-V7P512BW, samsung 970 pro nvme m.2, and it will be installed on the M2A_socket, but i've some questions:

- The socket it's just under the gpu, could be problems to install the m.2?

- i've read about the fact that the M2A_SOCKET could share the PCI lanes from the chipset, so in that socket the ssd will steal some lanes from the PCI_ex1 and conseguentially from the gpu, that will work at PCIex x8 and not x16, is it that true?

Thanks
