    Question Samsung M.2 SSD + PCIe x4 Adapter on Maximus VII Ranger

    Hello everybody.
    I've been thinking about buying an M.2 SSD for my system, I want this one:
    http://www.samsung.com/uk/memory-sto...d/MZ-V6P512BW/
    According to what I've readed my motherboard (Maximus VII Ranger) can't use that drive at full speed because of the chipset or the interface or something, it's limited to 700/800 MB/s vs 3500/2100 MB/s read/write it can go up to.
    I also readed that some people made them work at full speed with a PCIe adapter. I found a generic one:
