M.2 location

Im using the Zenith Extreme Alpha and looking at the best slot for the M.2 for the Operating system and my main drive. Im using a 3rd for duplicate files.

There are 5 slots ;1 and 2 on the board, 2 in the DIMM.2 and 1 on the back with no cooling.

I read that slot 1 does not steal any bandwidth and it is direct CPU-fed so Im assuming this would be good for my main storage holding large active files my files are around 1GB , slot 2 runs with reduced bandwidth and slot 3 on the back has no cooling and slower , the DIMM.2 card 2 slots are available too but I don’t know their limitations.

Look for a block diagram in the user manual it will show you where the lanes are connected to.
