    Hi Gurus..I'm Planning to buy a Samsung 256GB SM951 M.2 to use as a OS Drive..Is my setup still capable of using another PCIE like a M.2 SSD? I'm not sure about the PCIE Lanes..

    Using a Asus X99 Deluxe Motherboard with the following installed:

    980TI X 2
    Asus ROG Phoebus Soundcard
    750Ti
