Yes, the NVME would go on the motherboard.

I built a system at the start of the year and I used the two M.2 slots on the motherboard. It makes for a very nice clean and simple installation. I guess the only downside would be in not being able to remove the drives and put them into an external enclosure for some sort of utility purpose, but I don't really foresee a need to do that.

There are lots of external cases for NVME drives. This is the first one that came up in a search



Or, if you have a spare PCIe slot, you can get M.2 NVMe adaptors to plug into a PCIe slot for about $/£/€ 10-15.

I got this one on amazon.co.uk; I don't think that particular one is on amazon.com, but plenty of others: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B075TF6HFM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Only if your BIOS supports NVME


I thought it needed BIOS support only to boot from an NVMe drive, but to use it as a non-system drive then a motherboard with PCIe needs only NVMe drivers to access it. Or is that not correct?
