Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.

Yes you can use this a boot device however it may need a BIOS update.
z170 is newest mb so i think can
I'm using this combination and I'm really happy with it.
Just remember that system needs to be install in UEFI.
Sometimes you will have to make changes in BIOS - you can find on youtube how to do it - but my ProGaming was already set up from new.
I did install Windows 8 and windows 10 on it and both works fine.
If installing Win8/8.1/10 you should have no issues.
Please also note that if you are running 2x GPUs on this motherboard you will not be able to use this device as a Ultra drive as you will have no available PCIe Lanes (4th Gen I7 have 16 Lanes - 8GPU - 8GPU leaves 0 for M2 Ultra) If you ever are going to install as 2nd GPU then you need to upgrade to X99 / 5820K.
Hope the above helps.

will fit that slot as i would like to use this as my windows o/s
It is a Dell XPS 13 9343,
the drive will fit but unsure if bios will support it or not,
Dell support were not sure either way.

I contacted Gigabyte about this issue, they said that they have tested the model up and the model down from this drive, so they "don't see any reason why this wouldn't work". I thought that was justification enough to give it a shot, and have set up a computer with this drive in a Gigabyte Z97-D3H, and it works great.
Note that I had some issues getting the motherboard to "see" this drive straight out of the box. The BIOS that comes preloaded on the motherboard is only "Rev 5", whereas the BIOS available on Gigabytes website is "Rev 7". After flashing the BIOS, I disabled the SATA III port in which a 3TB non-SSD was installed, to "force" Windows 10 to install on the SSD. Once it was installed I re-enabled the SATA-harddisk and everything worked great - windows boots in <10 seconds.
Yes this would work
