It will connect to any desktop motherboard. It just needs a Sata connection free.

a motherboard that has a SATA connection, pretty much covers many desktops and most laptops but never assume.

Ok, thank you. I am a novice but building a gaming pc for my soon. Cheers
any good for running Xbox games from?
Not the best of drives but decent price from a main brand

What motherboard are you going for? A M.2 SSD (Intel 660p) can be had for £10 more but deliver a much faster drive.

If its your first build then these two links will help you:

Check compatibility on parts you wish to buy;
pcpartpicker.com/

Then build with some humour thrown in


Good luck!
Nice one .. thanks so much!

No worries. Theres a thriving PC community on HUKD so no question is too daft if you get stuck.

Hope your son enjoys the finished product soon!

M.2 is just a form factor. Wont make a difference speed wise when comparing an identical model m.2 or 2.5" drive. Depends which m.2 ssd you're considering

Hi Lee, which one can you recommend me ? Which is suited best for my MB.?

Hi Lee, which one can you recommend me ? Which is suited best for my MB.?


There needs to be a better description here. M.2 is the connection type, there are two bus types, SATA and NVMe. Your board supports NVMe as shown in this disk test here >

rog.asus.com/for…VME

Therefore it absolutely does matter in terms of speed to get NVMe M.2 SSD over a 2.5" SATA drive. That test is pulling 2500MB read and 1500MB write with vastly superior 4K random write. You have a throughput theoretical capacity of 32Gb NVMe versus 6Gb SATA. So roughly just over 5x faster sequential read/write with NVMe. 32/8 = 4 versus 6/8 = 0.75. (0.75 x 5 = 3.75). In real world terms SATA will get you 550MB read/write versus 2500MB/1500MB read/write from your NVMe drive and this is an older board so it's not going to give you the absolute best bandwidth, but it's thrashing the drive in this deal by some margin.

Can I fit this in a 2019 imac that has a fusion drive? Thanks
Someone mentioned something about this being ok for OS for general use but an ssd with vram would be better? Am I remembering correctly?

Wow, thanks for that so which nvme can you recommend. (I didn't know that)
Only if it was the mx500..

Nvme won't be a noticeable improvement over a standard SATA ssd for the average mainstream gaming/office pc. So unless you have some specific use case which can benefit from nvme then you can save money and go with SATA and feel good about doing so.

No cables, faster drive, little to no price difference. Yes both are so fast that you may be hard pressed to find a difference. If the price gap was big then SSD,. As both can be at price parity then NVMe m.2 should be the first option. SATA m.2 likely gives no gains, but a cleaner build. I have a mixed system for kid, NVMe on board with a SATA SSD added on top.
You have to note that these drives have NO DRAM.
