Product Features

Add-In Fast NVMe

Our popular NVMe M.2 SSD to PCIe Card (EC-PCIE) pcie m.2 adapter just got better. This new tool-free PCIe to m.2 card (EC-TFPE) operates similarly but is able to handle the newest Gen5 SSDs. This pcie nvme adapter AIC is designed to be easy to use, but also to keep your SSDs running cool and quiet.

Maximum Performance

This nvme pcie card connects at up to x4 PCIe 5.0 for transfers speeds up to 16GBps (bidirectional) but is backward compatible with older PCIe link speeds. It is designed with an x16 connector for maximum physical stability but may fit into some x4/x8 PCIe slots. Add it and go.

M.2 For You

This NVMe m2 to PCIe adapter card is designed for NVMe M.2 M key SSDs of any generation, at their respective speeds. This includes drives in the M.2 2230 / 2242 / 2260 / 2280 form factors. Older B+M key PCIe (AHCI/NVMe) SSDs are also compatible. Simply install your drive and enjoy.

Cool And Quiet

The add-in NVMe adapter card includes a built-in aluminum heatsink and thermal padding to make sure your new SSD stays cool. No throttling here. And no active cooling is needed, so forget extra noise when running even the fastest SSDs with this PCI Express m.2 adapter.

Designed to handle the newest SSDs at Gen5 speeds

The Sabrent M.2 NVMe SSD to PCIe x16 Tool-Free Add-In Card (AIC) with Aluminum Heatsink (EC-TFPE) is an update to our extremely popular NVMe M.2 SSD to PCIe Card (EC-PCIE). The EC-TFPE is designed to handle the newest SSDs at Gen5 speeds and is able to keep them running cool - and quiet - with its built-in aluminum heatsink and thermal padding. The card is tool-free with an x16 physical connector for physical stability but may fit some x4/x8 PCIe slots. The card connects at x4 PCIe electrically for maximum SSD performance and will work in previous PCIe generation slots at their respective speeds, as well as in future PCIe generation slots at up to 5.0 speeds.

The tool-less design allows for easy SSD installation into the add-in card. It’s never been easier to quickly add more fast storage to your system without the worry of extra screws, extra noise, or extra steps. The card supports M key NVMe SSDs and also older B+M key PCIe (AHCI/NVMe) SSDs in the M.2 2230 / 2242 / 2260 / 2280 form factors for maximum flexibility. This makes it simple to add another SSD to your system, whether new or old. Full NVMe support is recommended, which requires motherboard compatibility and a newer operating system. Windows, macOS, and Linux are supported with their compliant versions, and you can easily manage your drives with the appropriate software.

This PCIe m2 SSD adapter card will work with older systems, but please first make sure the host system is NVMe-capable. This PCIe SSD adapter card will work in any PCIe slot at its rated speed, up to a maximum 5.0. Please visit the manufacturer website to register your product and receive technical support.
