Can this motherboard compatible to M.2 SSD

Hey Guys,

I'm wondering if this motherboard supports M.2 SSD
http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/FM2A85X%20Extreme6/?cat=Specifications
I know this board does not have M.2 Slot, Does it mean I should get a M.2 to Pcie card like this one. https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboard-Accessory/HYPER_M2_X4_MINI_CARD/

If it's works, can I install Win10 in the M.2 SSD? or I should adjust the bios UEFI/Legacy to install win10 in it?

  1. Best answer
    Motherboard does not support NVMe storage.
    Motherboard does not have PCIe 3.0.

    These factors can cause your M.2 drive to be slower than advertised or not work at all.

    Your card specifies
    Compatible Models:
    Support ASUS Z170/H170/X99/Z97/H97/B85 series motherboard models.

    Not having an Asus motherboard would seem to conflict with the specifications.

    Thx pal, then sata ssd would be my best choice.

    Micron MX300 ,ADATA SU800 ,TOSHIBA A100

    Which ssd would you recommend the most or you have a better suggestion? (Samsung ssd is not an option because of the regional problem)
