Can i use an NVMe M.2 drive on this board?

Level 8
Hi there guys was thinking of upgrading an 850 evo to a M.2 PCIe NVMe.

I am running Bios 1701.
I am also running Windows 10.
The M.2 stick is 22x80.

I remember someone was having problems when the board first released but can't remember or find the post. Will the Rampage V Extreme run this stick?

Samsung SM951 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe High Performance SSD
All replies to my posts are really appreciated, thank you 🙂

Yes you can and they work as they should. I have a Samsung 950 Pro and it's working flawless. Plugged it in, booted and the bios detected it straight away. Haven't had problems with the windows installation too, was pretty much straight forward. One thing you have to make sure though is that microsofts "nvme" drivers are very bad, from what i remember, they still use "ahci.dll' crap". So if you get a samsung, donwload the samsung's nvme drivers and if you get an intel, well do the same thing :).

Get a 950 not 951 for warranty and support.
