Hello everyone,

I have recently upgraded my setup and I am now using a new Motherboard: Gigabyte B660 Gaming X DDR4

Unfortunately I didn't expect it to not support M.2 SATA SSDs, of which I have one which I can't use.
I can now use the new PC since Windows was installed on a PCie SSD but I am missing an entire drive because of this.

The M.2 SATA SSD I own is the "1 TB WD BLUE 3D NAND SATA SSD M.2 2280".

None of the M2 connectors on the Motherboard support M.2 SATA but is there a way I can connect my SSD to a certain adapter and have it plugged into a spare PCie slot and circumvent this issue? If so, I don't know what kind of adapter I should buy so I would love some guidance!

Please let me know if you need any more information!
