    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.
