Hi there.


Would just like to ask whether these 2 M.2 SSD's will fit into a Gigabyte Z390 UD motherboard.

The motherboard link is here: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07HKPK9C4/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1

The 2 types of M.2 SSD's here:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-MZ-V7E1T0BW-V-NAND-Express-Solid/dp/B07CGJNLBB/ref=sr_1_5?crid=30FTPWUHTY3ZJ&keywords=m.2+2280&qid=1566074483&s=gateway&sprefix=m.2+22,aps,165&sr=8-5


Another thing to ask, are all M.2 SSD's NVMe's? Sorry if it is a dumb question. Just need to know for this build.
Will both the above listed fit into the Z390 UD motherboard?

I really appreciate the help in advance,

Thanks

The "80" or "110" is length. 2280 is 80 mm long. The 22110 would ALLOW up to 110 mm length. There are multiple holes in the motherboard in a line. You move the mounting hardware to the proper hole depending on the length of the M.2 device.

Thanks for the explanation there, really appreciate it.

So the Z390 UD Motherboard has an M.2 slot. However the website says it is NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 22110 M.2 Connector (Up to 32 Gb/s).

The 22110 form factor confuses me here. Because most, such as the Samsung NVMe one are 2280. So will this be able to fit into the slot on the mobo?

In the manual for the mobo however it does say:
1 x M.2 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 SATA and PCIe x4/x2 SSD support, prepared for Intel® Hybrid SSD)

So then it should be able to work since 2280 is mentioned there?

Again, i appreciate the time and help.
