Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250gb is not in the list of Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 5 SSD Support List.

I m looking for buying the Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD and Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 5 Motherboard.
When I have seen the SSD Support List of that motherboard I have only seen Samsung 840 EVO and 840 Pro.
What Should I do now?
Will this mobo support SSD 850 EVO?or I have to opt for another Compatible sSd for this mobo?

  1. Don't worry it's 100% compatible. :D
  2. The motherboard will support the Samsung 850 Evo SSD.

    Don't worry.

    If anything, those compability lists just aren't updated.

    Any SSD is compatible with that motherboard.

    I have the OCZ Petrol 120GB and it's not compatible. Older SSDs cause issues with the sleep states.
  4. Can't disable the sleep states causing such issues?
  5. bp8401363 - The support list is not up to date. A Samsung 850 EVO ssd will work with the Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 5 motherboard.

    Lightbulbie - The OCZ Petrol is an older ssd that was first released at the end of 2011. It was never popular and is no longer in production. There were quite a few well documented issues.

    RCFProd - Sleep states/modes, hibernation, and other power management features can be disabled via the Microsoft Windows Control Panel. In addition newer motherboards with a UEFI Bios have some additional performance and power management features. I have all of them disabled. This is a situation where performance has priority over power savings.
