Compatibility issue?

When making a build, it says this. Is this something to worry about?

The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled. The motherboard M.2 slot #2 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled.

its something to be mindful of. but most of us don't use enough SATA ports and M.2 slots for it to be an issue. If you're doing a "typical build" with 1 SSD and 1 HDD and MAYBE 1 DVD drive then you're gonna be totally fine.

If that SSD is m.2 then just make sure to avoid the SATA ports it disables and you're fine.
