I have the X99 Sabertooth and it has a space for a long M.2 drive in a compartment on the lower right of the thermal armour and was wondering if this is just standard SATA6G M.2 drives or is it compatible with NVME M.2 drives for some 2000MB/s read speed goodness as I'm looking at getting one of the Samsung 950 Pro NVME M.2 drives :)

Yep. Slot supports M.2 PCIe drives and provides the full 4 X Gen 3.0 lanes required. It will share bandwith with the 16_3 X slot (last long bottom one on the board) however.
