Will an Optane P1600X M.2 drive work with the ASRock D2143D8UM motherboard?


I found a nice deal on eBay for a ASRock 1U server that has a ASRock D2143D8UM motherboard and the server also has a Optane P1600X M.2 drive.

I want to transplant the parts to a normal mid-tower chassis for my new TrueNAS SCALE server.

When I look in the manual it says the following about the M2_1 slot. It doesn’t mention NVMe:

It has the following settings in the BIOS regarding the storage:

So I’m a bit confused about the situation. It’s obviously a used server and since the Optane P1600X was already in it I’m assuming it will work but I’m not entirely sure.

Kind regards,


Any updates?

Is that the latest BIOS for the mobo?

got one in my x570 desktop. it’s just an m.2 drive and will work fine
