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.

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

Hasn't affected performance, Has been exactly the same as when it was plugged into the mobo itself

Mine goes up to around 70'c while gaming even while in the Asus expansion card with decent airflow, Little hot for my liking, Going to be getting the Alphacool M.2 cooling heatsink to help with temps.

I'm taking the silver bracket off the card as it's only held on with 2 x screws and painting it satin black to go with the mobo armor paint colour and honestly it doesn't look bad once in, The PCB is all black and even has a power and activity LED onboard that you can see through the window, Looks kinda snazzy

Thanks for letting us know Dice! Going to keep this as an option if the slot below GPU starts cooking. Also nice idea painting the bracket black
