[SOLVED] Suggestion on SSD upgrade for my GA-B150M-D3H-CF ?


Oct 19, 2011
Hi Guys,

My Current SSD is Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120GB
I am looking for upgrade on my above SSD

Mobo has a M.2 Connector
1 x M.2 Socket 3 connector (Socket 3, M key, type 2242/2260/2280 SATA & PCIe x4/x2/x1 SSD support)

As per manual this is what it supports
M.2 (M.2 Socket 3 Connector)
The M.2 connectors support M.2 SATA SSDs and M.2 PCIe SSDs.

Motherboard Image link from the gigabyte site - https://static.gigabyte.com/StaticF...606f4412ae32a6e35e3b62/Product/13391/png/1000

I was thinking of going for
WD Red™ SA500 NAS SSD, SATA III Internal SSD, M.2 2280 | Western Digital or
WD Blue™ SATA SSD M.2 2280 PC Hard Drive | Western Digital

Can you suggest me if the above WD Connectors work ? or any any other SSD ?
Any of the above WD M.2 will work for your motherboard.

The Blue WD seems fine for me in term of performance / price.
