Sabertooth X58 and M.2 drive via pci-e adapter. Possible?

Hi everyone in the know..

I recently bought a Lite-on 512gb M.2 for a Ryzen build that sadly didn't happen.

So, I want to use this M.2 drive in my current X58 mother board via a M.2 to pci-e adapter like this..

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Would it work?

Doubt you'd be able to boot from it but I don't know that for sure. It would probably work but might depend on the motherboard / PCIe lanes and then what else you had plugged into other PCIe slots.

Short answer: Most likely not

Longer answer: X58 doesn't support NVMe [which iirc the lite-on drive is], and as most x58 boards are BIOS rather than UEFI there's no way to bodge support on like with some later boards.

If it's the AHCI model [the CX1 iirc], it might work, but it's a lottery as to whther you can boot from it or not.

If it's a SATA model it won't work with the adaptor.

Thanks for the info guys..

I know the drive is AHCI, but I dont know how to tell if it's a SATA model?

The M.2 is this one in the pic (Lite-on CV3 8D512)

It's a SATA model. It says so on on the label. You can get converters that allow you to mount it like a 2.5"er but i don't know how reliable they are.

It would work in an PCI express adaptor but not for booting I run an NVMe in my z77 which doesn't support NVMe natively. As mentioned if yours is sata, you'll need a sata adaptor not NVMe one.

It will definitely work in the adapter as storage, but you may not be able to boot from it. The only way to find out is to try...

It doesn't matter, the PCI-E adaptors will only work with PCI-E M.2 drives, not your SATA model. You'd need a M.2 -> SATA converter like the one I linked above.

Or sell it on and buy a 2.5" SATA SSD.

I bought an M2 drive before for a build I was doing. It was 64gb. Any way, turns out I had an MSI board that you could not fit an M2 to only a wireless card (very odd board) and so I bought something like that ^ but cheaper and it's still going strong now. I use it for my Linux machine on a Phenom 2 and it boots as an SSD would

So woth something like this it will be powered by the pci-e slot, but I would still need to connect the SATA cable to the motherboard right?

I use one of those with a Sata m.2 drive.

Works very well, just pick up a super short sata cable.
