Specifications
SilverStone’s ECM23 is an adapter card designed for users wanting to utilize or add speedy M.2 devices such as SSD onto their existing PC or motherboard. ECM23 supports M.2 device (M key) to run via the super fast PCIe interface for added storage potential. It also includes an aluminum heatsink to enhance cooling and protect installed M.2 device. For users looking to expand their M.2 slots with fastest interface possible, the ECM23 is a must have.

Note:
1. There are three types of M.2 SSDs, please make sure you know the difference between them and whether your system/motherboard support them before pairing these with your SilverStone product.
2. ECM23 support 'M' key only, not good for B-Key SATA base M.2 SSD.
3. If you wish to boot off using M.2 SSD, your motherboard needs to support it. Due to BIOS limitations, not all motherboards support booting off M.2 SSD so please consult your motherboard manual or vendor for more details on how to enable this function.
4. M.2 PCIe-NVMe mode SSD requires the use of Intel 9 series (Z97 H97 Z170 X99) or higher version chipset motherboard with Windows 8 or higher version operating system.

Almost perfect 12/13/2019 12:28:24 PM

Pros: Thermal pads included for both single and double sided m.2
Thermal contact on both sides of the m.2 stick
Cooler operation
Compatible with motherboards which have no m.2 or able to expand a boards m.2 slot number

Cons: Requires full size PCIE x 16 pinout
Machining tolerances

Overall Review: The good: This heatsink enclosure is made entirely from aluminum, giving it a nice thermal throughput. Included thermal pads connect the m.2 card to the heatsink on both sides. Under testing load, this enclosure keeps the card 2-3C cooler than the coolest of the provided m.2 slots in my motherboard (Crosshair Viii Hero).

The bad: The machining seems slightly off. With the recommended pads installed for my card, screwing the backing on all the way (finger-tight) caused the PCIE connector to bow. I backed off the tension on the back screws just enough to keep everything straight. Thermal contact doesn't seem to be impacted, and the screws shouldn't vibrate loose, so the issue isn't of much concern.

The... ugly? Well, the enclosure does actually look quite nice. But there are 4 blue LEDs on the edge of the heatsink facing away from the motherboard that flash intermittently... even when not under reading/writing operations. The blue light actually matches my lighting theme reasonably, so it's more of a neutral consideration for my build, but I could see how the constant flashing might annoy someone else.

Over all- very nice.

Works as intended... but missing pieces... :| 11/29/2019 12:09:42 AM

Pros: easy to install. Works as advertised. Easy install

Cons: Missing pieces...I was missing 1 screw to hold down the drive and the thermal pads...

Overall Review: It works... but it was obvious that no one checked to see if everything was in the box as it should be.

Simple and effective 10/8/2019 9:46:44 AM

Pros: This card is a great way to add an additional m.2 SSD to your system. The ECM23 is built like a tank.

The heat sink performs well. I used a SSD that had issues throttling under load when plugged into a motherboard slot with no heatsink, with temperatures regularly bumping into the 70C limit. Installed in the Silverstone adapter, the same drive never exceeded 40C even after 30 minutes of full load.

Cons: The adapter uses a full x16 pinout although only x4 is connected. This is not an issue with most recent motherboards, but does limit use in older boards with x4 slots.

Overall Review: This is a relatively pricey adapter but the quality level matches the cost. If your system needs one more m.2 drive than the motherboard supplies, consider the Silverstone ECM23 as an excellent option.

Impressive 5/4/2019 3:29:04 AM

Pros: Small enough to fit between, without even touching, two nVidia Reference SLI cars in 3 slot config. Add nice activity lights to the board. Love the idea of the heartsinks and the thermal pads that came with it.

Cons: None
