RAID m.2 on the Cheap?

Hey Linus,


So i found this product on Amazon and was intrigued by its configuration offerings. Any chance you could do a review of this type of upgrade/configuration for Not exactly brand new computers? Here is the link to the device i was referring to.



I was interested in the fact that not all motherboards have m.2 and if i added this to my computer would i be able to see performance gains even close to a new motherboard?

I am Currently running and AMD FX6300 Six Core, 32GB DDR3-1600Mhz Memory, 128Gb OCZ Agility 3 SSD and a couple of SATA disks in RAID 0 on an Asus M5A97 LE R2.0 BIOS  2701 Motherboard with a Workhorse GIgabyte Radeon HD7970 OC 3GB GPU.


Does this design even have the capability of accessing data at full m.2 speeds?

Don't do raid.

If you need more speed for content creation or something then buy an NVME SSD.

I get that, But the Question is how much performance can this solution really provide? The device states it supports NVME SSD's.


Typically m.2 Sata SSD's are cheaper.
