I'm planning on buying of these when I go m.2 myself. Any chance you could let us know whether it will affect performance Dice?

It shouldn't, but I would be interested in the results none the less as I'm thinking about doing it myself.

I've never considered one. I'll take a look at them because it would look nice in my next build and would make room on the Ryzen motherboards for another m.2 drive down the line, even if it's only at x2 speed or standard SATA 3.

I think they pretty much work in the same way. It's all just down to lanes.

I would rather use a board with 2x M.2 slots rather than that ugly thing

Better looking yes, but far more cooling options open to you if you bung it in a slot.

There is no way I am leaving mine to cook if I get one.

Delivered today and got a Steam controller for £25 for the new build. Rang Corsair to ask about an eta for my AM4 bracket and they said in 2 days so all being well, my next post will be the build log (finally)

Sorry dude, I'll be sure to take plenty of shots of it for the log. I won't lie it's the only board in the line up to tick every box for me, the other being the Crosshair but that's way out my price range
