Is this SSD compatible? PCPP says yes, UBM says no

I'm trying to make a best bang-for buck PC, and this is my current build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ZVHV9J

However, while PCPP says no issues, I put the parts in UserBenchmark PC Builder (although I have to change the RAM model and SSD size) and it says the SSD is not compatible with the motherboard.

Is the SSD I picked compatible with my motherboard?

It's an M.2 NVMe drive and the motherboard supports M.2 NVMe.

I can't see the UBM pic so I don't know what the issue is there.

For bang for the buck, I'd recommend getting a larger SATA SSD instead for a similar price.

Thanks! I'm planning on a 240GB SSD because the person the computer is for doesn't need much storage.

It should be compatible. So unless UserBenchmark knows something is site doesn't, I think you are good to go. I would trust this site more.

Yes it's compatible, UBM is wrong
