    Yes, you can install a M.2 NVMe SSD up to 512GB recommended maximum size, as for the memory, you can upgrade up to 32GB(2x16GB) with DDR4 2400/2666MHz SODIMM modules.

    I think it's the maximum tested in this motherboard, hence the recommendation, 1TB or 2TB drives may or may not boot.

    As it was said its what was tested it does not mean it wont support it i have a 2tb wd blue 3d nand m.2 as bootable drive technically it should support but buy at your own risk :)

    U can but it wont make too much difference if the second hdd is ssd as the only one that matters amd you will notice is where the OS is installed (the main one) the second ssd or not will always perform as a normal hdd personally i think its a waste of money but hey you are free to do it i am upgrading my secondary drive 1tb hdd to a 5tb hdd it's the only thing you would notice its the space because performance will be the same brcause almost nothing will be cached in the flash of the second hdd
