ASUS Maximus VII Formula *Watchdog* mobo and m.2 ssd support

Feb 19, 2019 5:05AM PST

Does anyone know if the ASUS Maximus VII Formula (Watchdog) support m.2 2260 - spec state that the wifi connector is to be used, but once installed there's no way you could slide a ssd of this type in *simply not possible due to the direction of the mPCIe Combo III once installed on the card - Would really like to install a Samsung NVMe 970 EVO, but buggered if I can find anyway to remove the armor plate covering this mobo - making me think this mobo dont support it! The revision of the mobo is 1.1 *ASUS Maximus VII Formula Watchdog

Also read something about this board using PCI for the m.2 once someone manage to hook it up - true or....? How would this ssd stick *if its even can be connected* compare to a Samsung 860 EVO or QVE ssd?

What did you end up doing to get nvme on that motherboard? I just ran into the same dead end, it just won't go back into the slot with the heat sinks. thinking of getting an adapter now..
