In this episode at the bench, when you installed the SSD, you put it into the PCIe slot AND connected it to the SATA connector. But I thought that an SSD should be connected either with PCIe (faster) OR SATA (slower), but not both. Can you please explain?

Great question, this was a SATA M.2 drive, however there was not an M.2 slot on the motherboard, so we used a PCI-E M.2 adapter that plugs into a PCI-e slot and the data cable connects to the SATA port on the motherboard
