Faster Data Access for your PC
SilverStone’s ECM21 is an adapter designed for users wanting to utilise or add speedy M.2 devices such as SSD onto their existing PC or motherboard. ECM21 supports M.2 device (M key) to run via the super fast PCI-E interface for added storage potential. For users looking to have the fastest data access speed on a desktop computer, the ECM21 is a must have.
• Converts M.2 port (M key) into one PCI-E x4 interface.
• Includes optional low-profile expansion slot.
• No driver installation required.
There are three types of M.2 SSDs, please make sure you know the difference between them and whether your system/motherboard support them before pairing these with your SilverStone product.
SATA (B key)
Used for SATA SSDs, and interfaced through the AHCI driver and SATA 3.0 (6 Gbit/s) port exposed through the M.2 connector.
PCI Express using AHCI (M key)
Used for PCI Express SSDs and interfaced through the AHCI driver and provided PCI Express lanes, providing backward compatibility with widespread SATA support in operating systems at the cost of not delivering optimal performance by using AHCI for accessing PCI Express SSDs.
PCI Express using NVMe (M key)
Used for PCI Express SSDs and interfaced through the NVMe driver and provided PCI Express lanes, as a high-performance and scalable host controller interface designed and optimised especially for interfacing with PCI Express SSDs. NVMe has been designed from the ground up, capitalising on the low latency and parallelism of PCI Express SSDs, and complementing the parallelism of contemporary CPUs, platforms and applications.
• SSD Interface: M.2 (NGFF).
• Module Key: PCI-E x4-based M key.
• Support Length of M.2 SSD: 30mm, 42mm, 60mm, 80mm.
• Operating system support: Microsoft Windows 7/8/8.1/10 (32-bit, 64-bit), or future release versions, Mac OS 10.5 or above.
• Dimensions: 120mm (W) x 23mm (H) x 104mm (D) - 4.72" (W) x 0.91" (H) x 4.09" (D).

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.
