That is really cool. Combine with this MOBO (review) and you get an insanely good bugger for gaming/work :D

I hate to say it, but I do not think there are any boards with SATA 6 Gb/s mSATA ports...maknig this drive a bit early to the game.

Did not see that coming. I didn't really think about it. Thank you.

I do have an mSATA drive inbound for testing on Z77 products. Once SATA 6 Gb/s drives are available for purchase at reasonable prices, I'll buy one and investigate. I paid $90 for a 60 GB SATA 3 Gb/s drive, so prices are still a bit high at the moment.


AMD A75 and 9-Series Chipset products may support these drives, but I ahve found that some SSD's are quite a bit slower on AMD products vs. Intel, too. Several users have reported deficits of 100-150 MB/s compared to the same drive on an Intel-based system.
