Maximus IX Extreme

I bought this MB for a new build, and I'm still getting all my parts together. I already have an i7-7700K, but I was wondering what lanes are shared with what so I'll know if I can populate each M.2 slot. Can this MB run a 2 x M.2 SSDs along with an Intel 750 NVMe SSD or will I need to choose between using an M.2 and this Intel NVMe PCIe SSD? Thanks.

The 1 M.2 socket Lane provides by CPU
The 2nd Lane provides by Z270 PCH and PCI-e slot can install add-card x4 750 NVMe SSD
both can work 😄

PCIE 4_1 shares lanes with M2_2 and the 4 Intel Sata ports. You can still accomplish your goal, just don't put the Intel NVME SSD in PCIE 4_1.
