Can a PCI-Express SSD go into a PCI-E X16?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i'm talking about
OCZ Technology OCZSSDPX-1RVD0120 120GB RevoDrive PCI-Express SSD

because my X1 slot is already taken...

and i think its best option dont u?

beacause i don't think my mb supports SATA 6GB..

any way the ones that connect via pci-e are the fastest ssd's?

Yes you can.

Not really.

Price/Performance wise...I would have just rolled a Sata III.

Revodrives are fast but have a high failure rate. I'd say its a gamble.

As far as PCI-E slots go, if it plugs in it will work.

I'd like to know too because I had hoped to use a revo for a scratch disk in the future.

Crucial M4. The best price to performance ssd out there imo...
post #9 of 10
Crucial M4 128GB. Will be plenty fast even on your SATA-II mobo, a huge upgrade over spinning harddisk , and will be future proof for when you inevitably upgrade to SATA-III motherboard. Even on SATA-II you're still benefitting from the ultra low seek time and random 4K I/O which means a huge boost to Windows responsiveness. The SSD novice tends to get a little too hung up on the bigger sequential numbers of SATA-III on benches when the reality is their day to day use benefits most from random 4K. Notwithstanding games will still load much, much faster even on SATA-II.

Stay away from OCZ products their support is horrible, their newer gen products fail at an alarming rate, you're lucky to see an RMA replacement after a month and they nuke anyone that complains on their forums, And stay away from PCIe based SSD storage - too many reasons to detail here.

You'll certainly be bottlenecking it with the SATA 3.0 Gb/s, but as aforementioned, the 128GB Crucial m4 would be a great choice.
