Default Could I run dual M.2's?


I currently have a Corsair MP500 ssd and want to add a second

I have a RoG Strix Z270F Mobo and the diagram shows that the spare M.2 Slot supports PCIE 3.0 x4 or SATA. I only have 1 PCIE 3.0x4 input and the current M.2 is already using that, and don't think the MP500's won't run of SATA so am I right in thinking this wouldn't be possible?

I have:
2 x PCIe 3.0 x 16 (support x16, x8/x8)
1 x PCIe 3.0 x 16 (at x4 mode)
4 x PCIe 3.0 x 1
1 x M.2 Supports PCIe3.0x4 mode (Current SSD)
1 x M.2 Supports SATA & PCIe 3.0 x 4 modes

Any help would be appreciated

Hello kmanderson193,

From the information provided, it seems like the second slot can support a second m.2 PCI-e based SSD. You may need to go into the BIOS and ensure that it is set up for PCI-e mode and not SATA.
