gigabyte z170x gaming 6 and Samsung 850 EVO M.2

I'm building a new system and it's my first time using M.2 Drive. On the Gigabyte z170x gaming 6 there are 2x M.2 slots. I want to install a Samsung 850 EVO M.2 SSD. I will install a Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 in the PCIEX16 slot (the one closest to the CPU).

Does it matter which M.2 slot I use for the 850 EVO ?

I remember reading somewhere that it might take some bandwith from the PCIEX slot but I can't find any info about it....

    have you looked in the motherboard user guide/ operator manual for my MSI there was a page dedicated just for that.
