Lycom M.2 PCIe SSD to PCIe 3.0 x4 adapter


Unboxing and Installation Video

 

Made by the experts at Lycom in Taiwan, the Lycom M.2 PCIe SSD to PCIe 3.0 x4 adapter is an economical solution for installing a high performance M.2 (NGFF) PCIe x4 Solid State Drive into a standard desktop pc or Mac Pro (pre-cylindrical model) via a spare PCIe slot.

Note, this adapter is designed only for 'M' key M.2 PCIe x4 SSD's (pictured below left), and is guaranteed compatible with the Samsung XP941, SM951, SM961 (NVMe or AHCI), 960 Evo, 960 Pro and the MyDigitalSSD BPX. It will not work with a 'B' key M.2 PCIe x2 SSD or the 'B' key M.2 SATA SSD. For the 'B' key M.2 SATA SSD's you will need the Bplus Dual M.2 (NGFF) SSD to SATA adapter.

The adapter card is fully assembled and also includes a low profile bracket for cases that need it. A screw is included to secure the SSD to the adapter card.

Features and specifications:

  • Easily installs into any PCIe x4, x8, or x16 slot in your PC
  • Supports PCIe 1.0, PCIe 2.0 and PCIe 3.0 motherboards (AHCI or NVMe M.2 SSD's)
  • Supports 2006-2012 model cMP Mac Pro (AHCI M.2 SSD's only) when combined with the Samsung XP941 AHCI M.2 SSD 
  • Supports M.2 NGFF type 2242, 2260, and 2280 M.2 PCIe-based SSDs (AHCI or NVMe)
  • Pin header included on the card for LED connection
  • Regular sized PCIe bracket is already secured to the card, with an additional low profile bracket included
  • Transparent to the operating system
  • Requires no software driver installation
  • Supports Windows, OSX and Linux operating systems
  • *NOTE* System boot from this adapter card has limited support on Windows and Linux systems in UEFI mode.  Many Z97 and X99 based motherboards will support it.  Booting IS supported on 2006-2012 model Mac Pro (cMP) computers, but only with an AHCI based SSD (booting from NVMe M.2 SSD's is not yet supported in OSX)
  • You'll need to install your choice of any 128/256/512GB/1TB M.2 PCIe SSD for a complete storage solution.

Package Contents:

  • M.2 PCIe 2.0 or 3.0 SSD to PCIe 3.0 x4 adapter card
  • Standard height PCIe bracket (already attached)
  • Low Profile PCIe bracket (not attached, but included as an additional item)
  • Flat head screw (for attaching the SSD to the card)

Interface M.2 PCIe SSD to PCIe 3.0 x4

Simple and effective product

14 September 2016
Well designed and easy to use. Allowed me to install an NVMe SSD in my older motherboard.

Using fast SSD for old Linux Server

13 January 2016
I have an old Linux server with no m.2 slots, and only pci-e 2. And even with that I still get 1600mb/sec read speed and low latency. Installation was painless. I can't boot off it, but that's no big deal for me.

As described. Thanks for the quick delivery!

For anyone whose M.2 slot is only x2 speed

28 January 2015
The best solution to run Samsung XP941at full rated spec, the fastest consumer M.2 SSD. No drivers install needed! Fast shipping by RAM city.

Very fast

13 October 2014
It works great, I am getting 1.1GB/s on my 256MB XP941 on Z96 mobo + Linux. The mobo comes with M2 slot, but it is only PCIe 2.0 x 2 - so "only" 600 MB/s. After some calculations I figured I do not really need 4x PCIe 3.0 lanes to achieve 1.1GB/s. I moved the card to 4x PCIe 2.0 slot and it works at the same speed, freeing the PCIe 3.0 slot.
