I just built a new m.2 drive and I am a bit confused with the number of pcie lanes that are available for my setup. Some say 16, some say 40. Some say that the CPU has 16 and the mobo has 40. This confuses me slightly.
My question is if I add another nvme drive into a raid 0 will it adversely affect performance? Or will there be any gain at all? I know how raid 0 works in theory and I have done sata raids before with great results.
I DO have all my data backed up so I am not concerned with the reliability of the raid 0.
Mobo: Gigabyte aorus z370 gaming 7
CPU: i7 8700k
