This would really simplify things, as the cable would plug into the M.2 slot on the back of the MB (NOT the Asus M8I, obviously, I would have to go with a different MB; and, sadly, a 'regular' CPU water block, as opposed to the sexy as hell mono block …!) and would have plenty of slack to reach the forward mounting point…!

Well, The alt SKU Intel 750 Series NVMe 2.5" SSDs have arrived…

Newell has them listed, I am expecting prices to drop down by the time I am ready to purchase later this year…

But there is some very clear pics of the cable, evening with it stretched out straight; appears to have a good 18"+ of cable alone (not counting the connectors on each end), so more than enough to reach comfortably from the M.2 slot to the single forward drive mount…

The hell is that hackjob by Intel? biggrin.gif

That M.2 adapter is a mess. If the board has room for a M.2 slot, its U.2 jack will be horizontal anyway.
post #14694 of 16055
Gotta remember not every board has a u.2 connection since it's a newer connection (to the general public) that M.2 adapter would work well on my mITX board since it's on the backside and out of sight, to bad I'm selling off my z97 mITX board/CPU/memory

This is not a M.2 > U.2 adapter; it is a new cable from Intel…

Rather than a U.2 connector on the MB end, there is a M.2 connector…

Take a closer look at the pics, it is a single cable, NOT a adapter that turns the M.2 into a U.2 'slot'…
post #14698 of 16055
Right you are. It's still a weird design. If a board has room for an M.2 slot, why use it for a cable end instead of a gumstick drive?

I guess it's the only choice if someone has an M.2, doesn't have a u.2 port, but stilll wants to use a 750. It just seems like such a limited use case.

Well, it definitely opens up more mITX boards to be able to use the Intel 750 series 2.5" NVMe SSDs (only current mITX board able to support same with the U.2 is the Asus M8I)…

And it also allows one to place the SSD away from the MB, and away from a situation where a 'standard' M.2 gumstick SSD might be sandwiched between the MB & GPU (see the recent boutique chassis' that utilize such an arraignment of the components (Dan A4-SFX, Firewolfy MI-6 & Hutzy XS, to name a few)… This might help with preventing any thermal throttling from higher temps in these more confined chassis'…

Guys, I need advise.

I have a Fractal Define R4 and I think about liquid (water) cooling.
I thought install 2 radiators for 280mm (one on up and one front of basket with HDDs (basket I can move to 50mm from front panel)) OR install one 280mm radiator and 2 for 140 mm, pump and reservoir which install in place for DVD drive.

What is the better choice will be for my configuration?

Thank you.
I hope my english is understandable.
