Bought the Samsung T-1 msata 840-EVO SSD and found out it will not fit in the added slot on the Maximus V!! formula mother board. Newegg would not take it back even though I just received it that day. I ordered a 2 and a half inch msata conversion sata carrier to put the EVO in and from the back it has a sata III out port pins to plug into the motherboard I notice there are quite a few sata input slots on the mother board. Which import sata III port do I plug it in to on the motherboard and do I use the black cables that came with the mother board??

If some one could draw a diagram I would surely appreciate it.

Thank you

Hi jayef69

Unfortunately, I don't believe the one you have chosen will work whatsoever. Because the mobo only has an M.2 SATA connector which, I believe, is NOT compatible with the previous generation mSATA interface of the SSD. You have to buy a regular SATA SSD or an M.2 SATA SSD.

I'm interested to see if you find a solution, so good luck.

I bought a msata to sata converter tray and I have talked to other people and it will work I hear. Tried to send it back to Newegg and they refused it because they do not exchange or refund on hard drive SSD's.
