Default Which M2 socet for my NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 SSD (MP510)?

Which M2 socket should I use for my NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 SSD (MP510)? I can choose between M2M, M2A and M2P (Aorus Z390 MB).

I am aware of the relationsship between M2 socket and SATA3 ports. But I don't see if I need to use a specific M2 socket in order to be able to boot or if one socket is faster than the others.

If the selection of M2 socket comes down to SATA bandwith, I guess I should go with M2A socket in order to keep SATA 3 and 4. Then again, the MP510 is shorter land the M2A socket.. Please advise? :-)

I've asked this question in the Gigabyte Forum, but maybe you could help as we are talking about a corsair drive.

There are several Aorus z390 motherboards. Please be more specific.

M2A is the best option.
