I am finishing up my first build ever. So far everything is working well. I just purchased a 2nd m.2 drive (the first one is on the motherboard and is a Samsung 970 Evo. The x570 Asus Tuf MB has 2 m.2 slots but the second one is up close to the chip where I assume it is much warmer. I also have a Mailiya M.2 PCIe to PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter Card which I can put in an empty slot and wonder if I should use this instead for the 2nd m.2 drive. The second m.2 drive is a Intel 660p 2 tb drive. Does it make any difference for speed or anything else which I use - the MB or the Adapter card? Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks in advance. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/q67BPn
