Hello.
I have two questions regarding the motherboard in the subject
[list type=decimal]
[*]Does this motherboard allow boot from a device connected to SATA Express? Will I be able to boot from a simple HDD connected to one socket of SATA Express (it is written SATA Express is compatible with SATA).
[*]It is written that RAM will operate on 2133 speed. But in Memory Compatibility list it is  said that for example SamsungM391A2K43BB1-CRCQ with Skylake CPU will operate on 2400 speed. Where is the truth?

While I cannot say for certain, but most likely it will allow booting from SATA Express.

As far as memory is concerned, remember that XMP is supported, and because of that memory speeds faster than 2133 can be supported.

Thanks a lot for your answer. I will check what XMP is. But don't you know where I can 100% verify if I can boot from SATA Express? Manual doesn't say much about boot options. I want to use SATA ports for building RAID and leave SATA Express for OS.
