Recently I've purchased a Intel 12th Gen i5 Custom PC Builder system, which I'm very happy with. Just one question regarding location of SDD. Board MSI Z690-A WIFI has 4 M2 slots, three 4.0x4 and one 3.0x4. SDD is 4.0x4, but it was fitted in slower slot 3.0x4.. why? Overall, Im happy with the system, just this tiny detail.

I can see the issue, the M2_3 slot is a 3.0x4 slot. I would guess that this is an oversight as they all support s 2242/ 2260/ 2280 at 6Gb/s

What model is the M.2 SSD?

Samsung 980 Pro M.2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD
I've relocated drive in to correct M2 slot, and the is a beneficial difference.

I would confirm with support, there may be a limitation caused by the CPU or the information just isnt correct
