    PCI-E Allocation?

    Can you please give us some details on the PCI-E allocation when using the M.2 drives?

    The slightly lower model "Z270X Gaming 5" is absolutely terrible in how Gigabyte set it up. To use the bottom M.2 drive requires you to disable two SATA ports. Using the top M.2 drive takes out the bottom PCI-E 3.0 x4 slot. You're also stuck with the mostly useless U.2 slot and SATA Express.

    Can you confirm if this model exhibits the same behavior? Thank you
