If I install 2 m.2 nvme drives will it disable any sata ports? I had an older maximus board and it disabled sata ports 5 and 6. Read the manual but it states will only disable port 2 if im using a sata m.2 drive. Thanks for any help!

Hi,

If you install PCIe/NVMe M.2 SSDs in your M.2_1/2 ports (so in NVMe mode), no SATA ports will be disabled.

Your SATA6G_2 port will be disabled only if you install SATA M.2 SSD in your M.2_1 port (so in SATA mode).
