Product Overview

Faster Storage Upgrade

SilverStone’s ECM25 is an 1U adapter card designed for users wanting to utilise or add speedy M.2 devices such as SSD onto their existing PC or motherboard. ECM25 supports M.2 device (M key) to run via the super fast PCIe interface for added storage potential. For users looking to expand their M.2 capacity with fastest interface possible in low profile format, the ECM25 is a must have.

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.

• Converts one M.2 port (M key) into one PCIe x4 interface.
• Only 32mm tall when installed, easily fits in 1U or Slim chassis.
• Built-in LED indicator for showing PCIe NVMe status.
• Supports 2230,2242,2260 and 2280 length M.2 SSD.
• No driver installation required.

Sata (B key) (Not Supported)
Used for SATA SSDs, and interfaced through the AHCI driver and SATA 3.0 (6 Gbit/s) port exposed through the M.2 connector.

PCI Express using AHCI (M key) (Supported )
Used for PCI Express SSDs and interfaced through the AHCI driver and provided PCI Express lanes, providing backward compatibility with widespread SATA support in operating systems at the cost of not delivering optimal performance by using AHCI for accessing PCI Express SSDs.

PCI Express using NVMe (M key) (Supported)
Used for PCI Express SSDs and interfaced through the NVMe driver and provided PCI Express lanes, as a high-performance and scalable host controller interface designed and optimized especially for interfacing with PCI Express SSDs. NVMe has been designed from the ground up, capitalizing on the low latency and parallelism of PCI Express SSDs, and complementing the parallelism of contemporary CPUs, platforms and applications.

Features
• LED indicator: PCIe M.2 SSD Read / Write LED: Blue blinking.
• Interface: PCI Express x 4.
• SSD Interface: M.2 (NGFF).
• Module Key: PCIe x 4 NVMe-based M key.

The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quickest way to turn a relic into a modern PC Used this simple and cheap card to turn an ancient low end gaming PC that was kept for spares into a super responsive office PC. Barracuda 510 ssd (Also from Scan) installed in the card. Boot times reduced from 3 minutes to 15 seconds. Kids now have a PC they can use for homework during this lockdown. Simplest way to update old equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brill, quick and easy to install. worked like a charm. Recently add a NVME SSD to my unraid server, this little card allowed quick and easy installation direct to a PCIE slot. As my server had no onboard M.2 slots this was the perfect fix for me.

Will this work in a ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX, And will it boot from it? many Thanks

Asked by: SteveButler
Yes it will fit in the Sabertooth as long as you have a spare PCI-E slot for it. And yes you can boot from it. You may need to go into your Bios to change the priority.

What is the max read and write speed this will allow?

Asked by: JoshMoore
From my understanding you will get the read write specified on your drive.
