I have an Asus Z97-A motherboard and want to buy a .m2 ssd.
Will a Samsung PM981 MZVLB512HAJQ drive work with my motherboard.

Rebekka :)

In theory, it should work HOWEVER the m.2 slot on your motherboard is PCI-Express 2.0 and the m.2 drive uses PCI-Express 3.0 so your ss would be greatly limited from "32gbp/s" to "10gp/s"

So it would be better for me to buy a PCI-Express 2.0 drive instead of a PCI-Express 3.0 drive.
I would like to get higer mb/s as I have now (550/read 550/write).

Would one of these work ? (Im a bit unsure if they will work together with my Z97-a motherboard)
