I got a sata drive and I'm having trouble getting my motherboard to recognize it. After some research I have come to the conclusion that Asus Mobo m.2 bays are PCIE only and do not work with SATA m.2 drives.
While 2260 was recommended to me definitely fit, I can't imagine you would have any issue with a 2280, which is simply 20mm longer. there seems to be space for it (at least on my MVII Impact)
you can try sandisk A110, in legacy mode, it is no problem
Has anyone got a Crucial MX200 M.2 250GB 2280 SSD (CT250MX200SSD4) working as a boot up device?
Since its a B&M edge key connector , where as the mPCIe combo IV is a B key connector type ..
Crucial do say its a supported device on the IMPACT VII matx board
ASUS have not datasheets stating this thou ?
I know that the m.2 ssd for the M7F board is supposed to be an "M" key at size 2260, correct?
But I've read different things about the brand of m.2 (NGFF) ssd 2260 that will properly boot and be compatible with the Maximus VII Formula board. I aware of the size issue, so obviously it needs to be 2260 or smaller, but what brands are the most seemless for this board? I am considering using the m.2 as my OS drive. Because of this, I'm also curious about the bus/interface specifications. The manual for the M7F says that it will accept both SATA and PCIe for the M.2, correct? So, what do I need to look out for regarding the interface when choosing an m.2 ssd?
Does anyone have any success/failure/experience with the M7F to add when using m.2 ssds?
Thanks for any insight.[/QUOTE
i have the same issue and i was wondering if you find a solution ?
Im Interest for the samsung 950 pro (2280) with a DIY extension between mPCIE Combo III card and the motherboard.
Or if anybody know a very fast M.2 2260 fit on this MB.
