Hi guys
With the up and coming z97 motherboards. I've read on the MSI site that you can get one of these to use with the MSI z97 gaming 7 motherboard but I've been looking and don't see them anywhere

Any ideas where to look

Why would you need a M.2 to SATA Express adaptor? If you want SATA Express, chose a motherboard that natively supports it in the first place like the solutions from GB, Asus, Asrock. SATA Express and M.2 surely look similar in specs using SATA and PCIe lanes but I do not think they are that easily interchangeable. Moreover, what device are you planning to use? If speed is the target, why don't you go the PCIe in the x1 or x2 slot and you are no longer interface bandwidth limited.
