Charcoal Color M.2 SATA SSD Adapter to USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A
To take advantage of the increased popularity of M.2 solid state drives, SilverStone created the MS09, a premium, pocketable M.2 enclosure. It has an exquisite anodized aluminum exterior with a size that is nearly as small as common USB thumb drives. Internally, it fits M.2 SATA SSD up to 80mm so the MS09 can be used with a wide variety of new or repurposed M.2 SATA SSD from laptops and turning them into high-speed USB flash drive. To make the most of M.2 SATA SSD’s performance, it also incorporates USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface for superfast read / write and excellent compatibility. Lastly, the MS09 is designed to work without additional driver installation so you can conveniently take it anywhere and use it on nearly any PC instantly.
Build the Ultimate Flash Drive
Combine the SilverStone MS09 with any 2260 or 2280 form factor B key M.2 SATA SSD to create the ultimate USB flash drive. This device uses the latest USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface which allows up to 10Gb/s super speed transfer rate. Thanks to it's Robust USB Type-A interface and no driver installation use it is extremely easy to use in everyday scenarios.
Retractable USB Design
The SilverStone MS09C is designed to go with you on your everyday travels. By integrating an extremely convenient retractable USB Type A design, you don't have to worry about damage incidents occuring while the device is in your bag or elsewhere.
There are three types of M.2 SSDs, please make sure you know the difference between them before pairing these with your SilverStone product.
SATA (B key) only support to install this type
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)
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)
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.
Please note: The MS09 is only designed for M.2 SATA SSD, it is not compatible with NVMe SSD.

tl;dr Only works with PCI M.2, not SATA M.2. Bogus.
Before installing the thermal-pad/heatsink/sp-fans my Samsung 960Pro 512GB m2-SSD would idle at 40c, have a few programs open in the background with a video playing and 10 tabs open in chrome the SSD was barely being utilized but the temp would quickly creep up to 45-50c. A more more demanding read loading a game or encoding a video would spike to 60c and running a benchmark would peak the SSD at 72c where it appeared to throttle the speed. I was expecting to see high temps from all of the components of my system due to the mITX case and single intake fan, I was not worried about it as much as I just wanted to try to keep temps down so I could run the system as quietly as possible so I set out to try and improve things.
As I mentioned I installed 2x fans (replacing a single fan) at the same time I install the SilverStone thermal-pad and GnomeTech heatsink along with a panel to try and divert some of the air from the radiator under the motherboard so I feel the results are about as "best case" as you can get other than having a fan blow directly across the SSD. With everything installed I closed the case and booted the system: I first noticed it took a few minutes longer after booting for the system to get up to the same 40c idle temp, I then launched my normal applications and websites and noticed again there was a delay before the temps started to increase and that increase was slowed noticeably. This trend continued when doing more read/write intensive activities, temps would slowly creep up into the same 55-60c range, even when using the SSD 100% with a benchmark it takes 30+ seconds longer for the drive to peak at 72c - when you can read/wire at 3500/2100 mbps that small amount of time at full speed is a lot more data! The drive also cools/returns to idle temps slightly quicker than before but it is not as dramatic of a change as the delay in temps increasing.
My best guess is that the extra airflow from the new fans/ducting is having a minimal impact (drive still cools slowly) but the added mass of the thermal pad and heatsink is able to pull some of the heat/energy out of the SSD giving me more time before the drive will throttle. I was never hitting 72c in my normal usage so it hasn't solved any kind of problem as the system was running perfectly fine but I am happy that these parts, at least collectively, have made a noticeable change in the system. If someone has a computer where the m2 slot is in a more open location and they could have air moving directly over it I believe these parts could make a very real difference in the systems performance, possibly even preventing the SSD from getting hot enough to throttle.
*All temps obtained from CPUID HWMonitor application
TL:DR - These parts did not decrease my maximum temps but they were able to pull some heat away from my SSD to slow the increase and provide more time before the SSD would slow/throttle to control its temperature.
Don't know why I'm surprised, I bought a bunch of Silverstone 140mm fans earlier and they had the same issue. Such a horrible company. Why would you cheap out on something so easy to resolve??
I had to use the 2nd slot for a SATA conversion instead.
Still on a z77 platform and there are no worthy upgrades yet(CPU wise) and i didn't wanna spend $400+ to upgrade platforms for just M.2.
So i thought i could get the blazing PCI-E speeds from this adapter. I'm not because I'm still limited by the SATA port that I'm forced to use because like i said above. But at least i got to use the M.2 i got as a gift.
If I'm missing some sort of important info that will allow a PCI-E connection i would love some help and i would gladly change the review to a 5 star.
Right off the bat, problems with the machining of this device. The body is machined out of aluminum and cut in such a way as to provide a shelf/lip/rail for the circuit board to slide back and forth on using the thumb button. Nothing wrong with that part, the board it ships with fits fine. However, when I attached the M.2 drive to the board, it is supposed to fit in between the walls of the case, under those rails that the circuit board slides back and forth on. Herein lies the problem- the walls are not machined wide enough to comfortably accommodate this. So after I attached the drive to the board, and fit it into the case, the drive was sandwiched between the case walls, not allowing the circuit board to move in and out of the case with the thumb button. In fact, I had to pry it back out. I'm sure that the M2 drives are supposed to conform to an industry standard, but we are talking about G10 material that isn't going to be cut to 'machined' precise standards, which SilverStone should have taken into account when they were deciding on allowable tolerances related to this fit. They need to add another .005-.010"s to the case width. I was able to resolve this issue buy sanding down the sides of the M2 drive with some sandpaper- it didn't take much, just a few .001"s, and it was fine. However, I shouldn't have to take sandpaper to my drives to get them to work properly in this case.
Other than that, so far seems to function fine.
