trust you are well and safe ,
actually to be honest i have the same motherboard and i was searching all over the internet for an answer but was unlucky, so please can you really answer this guy question because i have the same issue, and i am not sure if its going to work or not and ofc i dont want to buy the pcie card and m2 ssd and pay for nothing .
so please your advice is really matter and i'd be thankful .
The OP wants to install a pcie ssd in the pcie 2.0 x1 slot.
I wouldn't advise it, even if it would work, it would be super slow because it's pcie 2.0 x1.
