I am about to upgrade my OS drive to an M.2 SSD and would like some advice on which slot to use.

I've done my research, but the results seem to be conflicting. some people seem to insist that putting it in the top slot, whilst others say the bottom. is there a difinitve answer?

also, I am still looking for assistance with this issue:
