TUF GAMING B650-PLUS WIFI and addon M.2 Card

Level 7

I have a TUF GAMING B650-PLUS WIFI Motherboard, and I want to get a SABRENT 4-Drive NVMe M.2 SSD to PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter Card [EC-P3X4], what slot can put it in so does not interfere with on board m.2 slots and gpu and still keep good transfer speed.


Level 11

It HAS to go in the second GPU slot as it's a 4x card with a wider PCI-E slot, not the small 1x slots. It'll limit your GPU to 8x instead of 16x, but tests show in benchmarks and gaming you only lose maybe 2-3% frame rate at 8x.

Not sure about your M.2 configuration for those if you are using your other M.2 slots, but they should be fine. I think only one of them runs off the CPU lanes anyway, the rest are on the chipset lanes and will work just fine.
