  1. Best answer
    Yes. Set in BIOS PCI Express X4_3 Slot Bandwidth to M.2
    However, the slot is x2, not x4, so you'd not be able to use the drive at its full potential. Maybe spending less money on a x2 M.2?

  2. thanks yo, is that going to reduce the speed of my Sli 1070's at all or is that option talking about different pcie slots? I only have my sli 1070's in , no other pcie slots have anything in them

  3. You're welcome.
    The M.2 does not share bandwidth with the cards, but with the x4 PCIe slot. However, check the above about the x2 vs x4.
