    Default GA-Z77X-UD5H F16j 2017/11/14 with NVMe support?

    Hey I was just going to buy a regular ssd but i saw there was a possibility to buy a SAMSUNG 960 EVO M.2 500GB for roughly $207 and its so much faster. But i have a old mobo and i found this thread.


    I saw from this thread gigabyte has released a new bios that included the NVME support?

    ..since i dont have a port for the m.2 nvme drive i would need to buy an adapter right?
    would this one work or is there a better one?

    I have the same motherboard and am wondering if you did get a Samsung Evo 960 M.2 to work with the GA-Z77X-UD5H. How about NVMe support for the f16 bios version?

    Possibly not. See:Did you see the 2017-11-14 F16j MATS table bios update? * Issue #2 * al3xtjames/coreboot_mainboard_gigabyte_ga-z77x-ud5h * GitHub It is only for OS compatibility.

    See the post on that page from mr-an who commented Feb 16 2018 It seems confusing. I can't find any posts stating working NVME drive in this motherboard.

    That covers separate nvme adapters. I have a GA-Z77X-UD5H with thez77xud5h_mod11_f16 BIOS. I do not plan on msata (on the motherboard) nor NVME. I would think anyone wanting to use NVME would use newer motherboard than the GA-Z77X-UD5H. A reglar SSD is fast enough for and old board like this.

    I have a GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard working with a Samsung EVO 960 1 TB NVME SSD as boot drive with Windows 7, 64-bit.

    Cool!! What M.2 adapter card did you get and was it difficult to get the drive to work as a boot drive?

    Hello,

    I used a Startech PEXM2SATA32N1 adaptor. I chose this one as the NVME drive sits on top when installed, so better heat dissipation. I didn't bother with the 2X SATA ports. It was very surprising when Windows booted up as I have read that you need a modified BIOS for this, and mine was just the latest F16 BIOS. It seems to use Windows boot manager.
    I've upgraded now to a Z270 board, but I remember it was not difficult to get the Z77 one to boot Windows. There are two places in the BIOS to check: just make sure that in one of them (the one lower down the BIOS screen I think) is set to make the NVME drive first in the boot order!

    I'm not sure. This is the first time I've heard of the 970 Evo Plus, but it sounds good. These are uncharted waters!
