I have been putting together a build and have already purchased much of the items. I have been using a site called PC Partpicker to track the items. Today I noticed an incompatibility notice that I do not understand and am hoping that someone here can help. Here was the notice:
Crucial M550 512GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive and Cooler Master HAF X ATX Full Tower Case are not compatible.
The motherboard M.2 slot #0 shares bandwidth with a SATA Express port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA Express port is disabled.
Here is a link to the orginal build:
I really do want to use the M.2 slot because I do believe it is the fastest option. It may not be the most economical but that is not my highest priority. I do also have other hard drives to be connected but what is the issue with the SATA express port. Does anyone see where I would need the SATA express port?
Any help would be appreciated. I am almost ready to begin assembly and don't want any surprises. johnstac is online now Report Post Edit/Delete Message
