    I write this but, I am not completely sure. I do not believe the X99 has an M.2 slot.

    It does have two M.2 slots I own two of these boards, they work quite well.

    Expansion Slots:
    5x PCI-E 16x slot 2x16/8, 3x8, 4x8
    1x PCI-E 4x slot
    2x M.2 Ports
    -M.2 Socket 1 (Slot E) shares signal distribution from USB2.0 #3 port, please select the operational mode in BIOS setup menu
    -M.2 Socket 2 (Slot M) shares signal distribution from PE5, please select the operational mode in BIOS setup menu

    Does it support NVMe? Also, what PCI-E generation does the M.2 slot support? (When trying to use a M.2 SSD, I want to know the speed limit for R/W)

    for best speed on the X99 ... a PCIe card would probably be faster ...

    I'm using the X99 CLASSIFIED. I wanted to know the generation of this M.2 port to know if it can handle higher speed NVMe SSDs. Do the same speeds and limitations to Micro apply to the Classified model?

    Your not going to get M.2 PCIe Gen 4 speeds in Any X99 MB .... memory says PCIe Gen 2 for your M.2 ... still looking for documentation to confirm
     
    I decided on the - Intel 750 Series drive in my X99 Classy - faster than the M.2 on the MB
     
    Intel 750 Series AIC 400GB PCI-Express 3.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEDMW400G4X1
     
     
    EDIT: found answer in this thread: X99 Classified M.2 Speeds - in post #2
     
    "The M.2 socket on the X99 Classified is seviced via the PCH with 4 lanes Gen 2 PCI Express. Therefore your M.2 speeds will not be as fast as 4 lanes Gen 3 PCI Express."

    Going by my memory, I had a Samsung 265gb PM981, it is the OEM ver of the 980 or 970EVO?I bought used off ebay.
    I was getting very close to the speed it was rated for.
     
    I think I have just reg SSDs in my Classifieds now but I think I still have a NVME in my X99FTW
    I have 16+ computers all over the house ready to run and I move parts around often
    My X99 classy is not my main rig anymore just folding and BOINC, (no mining) took the NVME out
    Have to search around and see what is where...
     
    I believe the FTW and Classy have the same M.2 parts. I'll pull the cover and if it is in there I'll run a speed test
    Maybe if I can throw a MVME in one of the Classys and test 
     
    I do remember though I was getting full speed or very close to it, with the PM981 if you want to look up those specs
    The Mp981 is PCIE3

    I've been using a Kingston Sata SSD on my X99 CLASSIFIED but the system is freezing sometimes (only unfreezing when opening the task manager) and it's driving me crazy. Tested all the ram sticks and no issues with them.
