M.2 NVME to PCI-e

I heard of these devices, but is this one any good?

 

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA6V87HX5336&Description=m.2 pci-e adapter&cm_re=m.2_pci-e_adapter-_-9SIA6V87HX5336-_-Product

 

I can't find any "professional" reviews on it. It also looks badarse and is 67% off. Was $59.95, now $19.74 (for now)

 

I am using this for storage, not OS booting.

Reviews look ok so I'd guess it'd be fine. My only question though would be why? Why not just use an m.2 slot

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

My board, that I am going to buy in a few months, says this:

AMD Ryzen 2nd Generation / Ryzen with Radeon Vega Graphics / Ryzen 1st Generation Processors
- M.2_1 socket 3 with M Key, Type 2242/2260/2280/22110 (PCIE 3.0 x4 and SATA modes) storage devices support
AMD 7th Generation A-Series/Athlon X4 Processors
- M.2_1 socket 3 with M Key, Type 2242/2260/2280/22110 (SATA mode) storage devices support

AMD X470 Chipset:
- M.2_2 socket 3* with M Key, Type 2242/2260/2280 (PCIE 3.0 x2 and SATA modes) storage devices support
* The M.2_2 socket shares PCIe clock with PCIeX1_1, when PCIeX1_1 or PCIeX1_3 are occupied, M.2_2 only can support SATA mode.

I am going to use this with a Ryzen 5 2600.

 

So it has two, but it doesn't... I have a 256 Samsung 870 EVO for system boot.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean... it seems to me that the M.2_1 would work, no? It does support PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs

 

Do you mean the 970 evo? Just making sure because if you mean the 860 evo that's a SATA m.2 SSD not a pcie m.2 ssd

My mistake. I currently have a 250GB Samsung 960 EVO M.2.

 

I just now bought a new 500GB SAMSUNG 970 EVO M.2

 

I want to use both in my system. Currently, my board has only 1x slot. My future motherboard has 2x M.2 ports BUT like it said, if I use up the Pcie x1, it will run in SATA mode.

 

That make sense?
