m900 SFF - Install 960 EVO NVMe M.2 SSD - Looking for PCIe x4 / x16 adapter

Hi All,

 

I would like to upgrade the m900 with a Samsung 960 EVO NVMe M.2 SSD. Given that this drive is quite fast and given that my model only seems to have PCIe 2.0, I think that I should not connect the drive to the small and slower PCIe x1 slot. For this reason, I am looking for a PCIe to m.2 adapter that fits into the larger x16 or x4 slot however I am having a hard time finding one that you can buy here in Germany.

 

Does anyone have any recommendations?

 

Thanks!

You might want to check where you got your information, ThinkCentres have not used PCIe 2.0 for a number of generations, my recollection is M91p was the last.  This thread has the info you are looking for:  M900 SFF & Tower: how to boot from M.2 SSD (PCIe, NVMe)
