IIRC, M.2 SSDs are not supported in the 8-Series motherboard BIOS. The M.2 SSDs started being supported in the later BIOS version of the 9-Series motherboards. So, be sure to check the BIOS update notes or ask Gigabyte Support if your Z87MX has support for M.2 SSDs.

Yep, does not appear to be supported. Still seems it should be possible to use one as a fast disk - but not booting.

I have some uses it may be important for, but not urgent. Thanks.

Can anyone with this build running on the built-in graphics (HD4600) share what their multiple-monitor experience is? How many monitors connected, max res, what connectors, using what recent systems? Because of Nvidia situation, considering removing my card entirely and running off the built-in.

I have two Eizo monitors connected with 1920 x 1200 @ 60hz. One on HDMI, other on DisplayPort (I think, currently not at home so can't check..). Latest macOS, no issues at all. At some point I also had a 3rd display at 1080P but didn't really use it that much (mainly for video editing).
