    Default Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming 7 - Which M.2 socket should I use

    I have read the manual (not like me....) but I cannot establish which M.2 socket I should use.


    I assume it is the one with the heatsink, but I have connected my Samsung 960 Evo to that socket, and my transfer rates are significantly lower than I would expect (>1000 MB/s).


    I am using the Samsung v2.3 driver.


    1) Is the 'drive' in the wrong socket?
    2) Are there BIOS settings I need to change?
    3) How can I confirm the socket is PCIe x4 speed?

    Thanks in advance!
