Just that,

 

Does anyone know if the ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. MAXIMUS VIII HERO (LGA1151) m.2 slot is compatible with the NVMe SSD form?

 

That means can it take full advantage of the NVMe M.2 form factor? (Up to 2000 MB/Sec).

Or is this motherboard only good for the SATA form factor? (Only up to 500 MB/Sec).

 

Either way what would you recommend for a mM2 card for this motherboard?

 

Thanks,

 

John

The specs for the board say it supports PCIe; but, you should read this and inspect the sockets to see whether it is X1 or X4:

As to suggested devices, almost any major player will do just fine after you see what should fit. (i.e. Samsung, WD, Sandisk, etc.)

It does say PCIe X4; but, here is a link to the manual:
