Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide and sorry for the newb questions! Below are my components, the only items I still haven't purchased are the GPU, Windows Pro and the three additional fans. My case comes with three fans and a controller to handle the additional three fans. I am sure I will have more questions and really appreciate the help!
I have two M.2 ports and I am not sure which one to use? It has a M2M and a M2P port and they share bandwidth with some of the SATA ports . M2M shares with SATA3 4 and 5 where M2P shares with SATA3 0 or 1. I have a table in my MOBO manual that specifies which SATA3 ports would be unactive if the port is populated but I don't understand it since I am not sure if my M.2 is SATA or PCIe? Which port should my SSD be attached?
I am so lost as far as which wire connectors need or should be connected from the PSU to the MOBO. How do I know which needs to be connected? It looks like I can use the ATX_12V_2X2 or the ATX_12V_2X4 or the ATX 24 pin...I would assume the best is to use the ATX 24 pin?
