This series didn't come with a M.2 SSD so you are using one of the PCIe slots with an adapter for the M.2 SSD to function. Depending on the adapter you could have either a PCIe/AHCI or a PCIe/NVMe M.2 SSD.
The PCIe/AHCI drive is only 6.0 Gb/s. Depending on which slot it is in you might be using a 2 or 4 lane PCIe/NVMe M.2 SSD - 8.0/16 Gb/s
Your system offers the following slots: 2 - 16-lane PCI Express 2.0 and 2 - 4-lane PCI Express 2.0
Here's more on the M.2 SSD's Types of SSDs: 2.5” vs. M.2 SATA vs. M.2 NVMe vs. U.2
Now lets look a bit deeper on what this system had for drives. This version had 4 - 3.0 Gb/s wired bays. So you might want to install a PCIe SATA III (6.0 Gb/s) board 2 or 4 port. Then you can install a fresh cable set to the bays you want to use. These older SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) cables were not very good. If you don't install a new PCI board then you need to make sure the drives you get are able to run at the slower SATA II speed. Many drives today have dropped support for the lower I/O. Make sure you check the given drives spec sheet that it clearly states it runs at SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) if it doesn't don't buy it. Again this is only if you don't upgrade the systems ports and data cable.
Now with this foundation we can see you can have upto four drives in the bays. So you can do what you want here.
