    I recently bought a new smaller case, and I had 3 SSDs from before, totaling at just under 1TB. I wanted a new one but but didn't really have the space for another 2.5" and the cables. I remembered that my MB has an m.2 port and went with a pretty cheap Intel 660P 1TB.
    Are these speeds what you'd expect from it on my motherboard? I'm guessing I can't use the full potential out of it?
    Not that I would notice, I'm going to use it for games and programs. It's still faster than my other ones.

    M.2 was disabled by default. Now that it's in use, will this affect the performance of my graphics card at all?
