Hi Guys

Got the above board for my sons first gaming build ...

Storage spec below:

• AMD® B350 Chipset
• 4 x SATA 6Gb/s ports*
- Support RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 10
1 x M.2 port (Key M)
- Supports PCIe 3.0 x4 (RYZEN Series Processors) or PCIe 3.0 x2(AMD® Athlon™ with Radeon™ Vega Graphics and A-series / Athlon™ X4 Processors) and SATA 6Gb/s
- Supports 2242/ 2260 /2280/ 22110 storage devices

would it accept the below?
WD Blue SN550 500GB High-Performance M.2 Pcie NVMe SSD

Thanks All!!!

Way out of touch with this stuff now, looking for some friendly guidance :)

Yeah, that will fit, no problem. The Key M thing just means the board will take Nvme drives. I think you can get SATA drives in M.2 form factor, which are key B. Those will not fit, but they are much slower and outdated now anyway.

I have the same drive actually, it's great performance for the price.
