    Default Gigabyte z97x-SLI not getting 10 Gb/s from M.2 slot with Samsung SSD

    So the title explains it. My SSD is a Samsung PM 981 256GB M.2 NGFF PCIe Gen3 x 4 NVME and I have it installed in the M.2 slot and it works fine, just only running at PCIe 2 x 2.0. The file uploader would only let me upload 1 file, so I copy/pasted the CrystalDisk Mark results below. I was told that Intel 9 series chipsets don't support the 10 Gb/s speeds, so if that's true, why would they advertise that it does? Any info would be appreciated!
