I want to buy second ssd m.2 in free slot. I found out that the supported type is PCI-E 3.0 x4, but what type of key is suitable? B or M? The installed disk uses the B+M key

    Hi,

    You have two M.2 SSD slots, one is for M.2 NVMe SSD only and the other for M.2 NVMe/SATA SSD, I think you have the M.2 SSD installed in the slot for PCIe/SATA SSDs, you can install M.2 NVMe SSD only in the empty slot, however, you can use M key or B+M key in any slot because they are universal but the difference is made in chipset, B+M key M.2 NVMe SSDs normally have PCIex2.
