I hope someone can share their experiences with me as I am a little confused about what SSD's are compatible with my Maximus V Formula. Z77 intel chipset
My HD is on its way out and I was wanting to replace it with a SSD 512 GB. I am considering the Samsung 850 Pro and the 950 Pro.
In terms of connectivity I think my options are a
1. Sata Cable to the 6 GB/S red connector on the MOBO. - means 850 should work? 2. MPCIE card - not yet sure what SSD's would work on this port yet but seem to read that it is not going to be around much 3. PCIe slots - Apart from the pcie X16/X8_ slot 1 the rest are available.
My question is whether I can use the spare pcie slots to install a SSD like 950 pro or is there some other chipset constraints that I am not aware of?
Anyone have any experience of using SSD's on this board and what option is best for bucks?
