Hmm, not sure what the PCIe configuration on that board is. I think it uses PCIe 2.0 lanes, which run at half the speed of PCIe 3.0, and shares these PCIe lanes with the bottom PCIe 16x slot.

Looking at pictures of the board, it seems to say that it has M.2 2280 support (M.2 cards that are 22mm wide and 80mm long). Check this on your board to confirm this. Should say it beside the M.2 screws.

No. They are basically the same. And any other NVME drive.

I have Z97 Deluxe, and i was looking into putting NVME drive on my board. The thing is that M.2 slot is only 10Gb/s (M.2 on new boards is 40Gb/s) but if you put NVME SSD in black PCIE slot on your motherboard it is 20GB/s. Wich means you will get max reed/write speeds of 2.560 MB/s. You can't get max rated 3.500 MB/s reads. But, realistically, when will you get those speeds anyway? Writes will be maxed out, and you will get the benefit of 4K NVME read/write speeds.

So... Get NVME to PCIE card (like this this ASUS one), put your 970 PRO in black PCIE and enjoy NVME speeds.

It will run that drive but at like 800mb/s
If you want full speed you will need a PCi-E m.2 adapter card

No it wont if you put it in black slot. 2 red ones are connected to CPU PCIE lanes. Black one is connected via PCH.

I don't think it would make much difference, and it depends on what is available in your region. Just don't buy one from the company you have never heard of.
