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.

Lycom DT-120 M.2 NGFF SSD Host Adapter Card, PCIe 3.0 x4, 2280/2260/2242mm, For PC/MAC/Linux is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from installed easily and worked with no problem on a non M.2 equipped motherboard Installed into an old ASUS AM3+ motherboard, sure I only had x2 PCI-E transfer rates but still saw a speed improvement over the traditional SATAIII bus. note: did not show up as a device within the UEFI BIOS, windows 10 detected it and showed up in device manager with no extra drivers needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent PCIe to U2 card My motherboard does not have a u.2 port but using this card I was able to get close to the quoted speeds of the Samsung 960 Evo Very happy
Date published: 2016-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, cheaper and easier to obtain than the ASUS equivalent The ASUS equivalent card had rocketed in price and was difficult to obtain, so I took a chance on Lycom whom I hadn't used before. The Lycom card is well made and worked without a problem in a PCIe slot on an ASUS MAXIMUS VIII Ranger motherboard. On this basis I'd be happy to buy Lycom in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm. Great value. I'm using this adapter with Windows 7. The card does not require any drivers. Just plugged it in, and it worked straight away. Great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used with SM951 SSD I had to upgrade my BIOS to get my motherboard to boot from the PCIe. In fact I had to create / modify a BIOS binary to get it to work, which was not very easy. However, it did work in the end and seems to be working very well with Windows 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used with a Samsung 951 PCIe ssd. Had no problems fitting it or getting it to work. It has to be used in the correct slot on Motherboard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked like a dream. Choose this card for my MacPro 3,1 Early 2008 8 Core, combined with a 256Gb Samsung SM951 M.2 (22x80) PCI2 3.0 (x4) AHCI SSD MLC NAND, to give my machine a boost. Did a fair bit of research to make sure I had a workable solution. This combination is now my boot disk, and it has certainly given my ageing MacPro a sped boost. With El Capitain it certainly feels fresh. I installed the new system from a bootable USB 16Gb stick, there was plenty of information on YouTube on how to do it. It all worked very smoothly with no problems. You don't get the full 5Gb/s throughput, as on this machine the video card takes that, but at 2.5Gb/s that you get, it is certainly fast enough. Scan communication were excellent informing me when the product was despatched and delivery. Item came superbly packaged in bubble wrap well protected. First class service and product. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works at PCIe 3.0 x4 for Samsung 950 Pro I purchased this for my Samsung 950 Pro as by board only supported PCIe 2.0 on its M.2 Port and in error I thought it was 3.0. I was getting approx. 840MB at PCIe 2.0 and can confirm this M.2 adapter functions at 3.0 x4 as advertised. After moving to this card I am getting the expected performance at about 2600MB.

Questions & Answers


Asked by: budy
If you want to get the top speed from the card you'll need a PCIe 16 version 3 slot. If you've only got a PCIe 2.0 you'll not get the full speed of the card.
