Pros: Low profile board comes with full and small form factor mounting brackets. It gave me no trouble in my ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac. I run full speed.
Other Thoughts: My ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac motherboard does not have an x4 PCIe M.2 slot. This card lets me try the newest SSD format without compromise.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Speed: At 2000MB/s read, 500MB/s write this little M.2 stick is much faster than any of the SATA 3.0 drives in my system.
Compatible: Runs well on my old ASRock Z97E-ITX/ac based system with the use of a PCIe adapter card. There was no fiddling with the BIOS. I just booted and the 600p showed up in the boot menu.
Other Thoughts: I purchased an inexpensive PCIe to M.2 adapter card to run this because my mother board does not have an appropriate M.2 slot. It works fine that way under Ubuntu Linux 16.10. I tested the speed using the "disks" benchmark in Ubuntu.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: thick steel, no sharp edges, great airflow, room for full atx power supply
Extra height for big PCIe cards.
Support for 120mm water coolers.
Cons: non standard drive mounts, many screws
Other Thoughts: I have built my second system in this box and I like it more now. I use this one to do PCIe based development on Xilinx Evaluation cards. Those extra tall cards fit perfectly in this box.
I'm cooling the i7 4790K cpu with a Corsair water cooler.
