Use M.2 E-Key to mini PCI-E adapter?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 1.04/918+ install working very well on a AsRock J4105-ITX system. The board only has 4 SATA ports and one PCIx2 expansion slot.

However, there is also an M.2 E-Key slot meant for Wifi/BT. My NAS is plugged in via ethernet and i will never use the M.2 slot for wifi. 

 

My question is whether anyone has used a M.2 E-key to miniPCI-E adapter? I would like to use that for SSD cache disk instead of using one of the 4 SATA ports.

but i'm not so sure if thats the best choice, bringing it to a m.2 nvme type (M or B+M) with just 2 pcie lanes usable would you enable to have a 5 port jmb585 m.2 card (i use one in my normal nas with 3 disks and its working reliable so far)

Thank you both. I went with a m.2 E to mini PCI-E https://rb.gy/d7cw27

I am going to buy a miniPCI-E card with 2 or 4 sata slots and see how that works. I will update the thread,
