RevoDrive X2

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of using this for my mATX build however the evga micro sli doesnt natively support sata 6, would I still recieve the full benefits of this drive through the pci?

I'd like to know before I commit 700 bucks into it lol,

Thanks in advance I appreciate any help for this

Before you even think about committing anything, research to find out whether or not your mobo supports booting through the pci port. There have been quite a few issues with that drive being incompatible with certain motherboards. It will work fine as a storage drive, but not so much as a boot drive.

Thats a very valid point lol, though the board doesnt seem to popular when overshadowed by the Asus GeN3, though I will ask the official thread about it soon
