Thimphu motherboard M.2 socket 3, key M

ENVY Phoenix 860-140
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an ENVY Phoenix 860-140 with the Thimphu motherboard (IPM17-TP). The documentation shows that this MB has a M.2 socket 3, key M slot.

 

My question(s): What exact type of M.2 SSD is compatible with this board? Is it a PCI Express or SATA slot? What length SSD will fit?

 

Note: I am looking to use it as the boot drive. Depending on the type, it may be much faster than the SATA SSD boot drive I currently have.

 

Thanks

On the motherboard, the standard Socket 3 is designed for SSDs (both SATA and PCIe, up to x4 performance).  This series has been around for over 1 year now.
