Looking to get a new SSD:
Samsung MZ-V7E1T0BW 970 EVO 1 TB V-NAND M.2 PCI Express Solid State Drive - Black (£220)
to go in my ASUS Hero VIII and was wondering if this is a good combination or if there is a better SSD out there for a similar price.

TIA

That’s a M.2 drive, does the board have a M.2 slot? Most do, but check if it will physically fit and be compatible as the board might not support such a big drive.

Cheers for your reply.
The Asus page says:

Intel® Z170 chipset :
1 x M.2 x4 Socket 3, with M Key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 storage devices support (both SATA & PCIE mode)*1
6 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray, , 4 ports from 2 x SATA Express
2 x SATA Express port
Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology supports*2
Supports Intel® Smart Response Technology*2
ASMedia® ASM1061 controller :
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), black, *3,

Under internal ports:
1 x M.2 Socket 3 with M Key design, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 storage devices support (Supports both SATA & PCIE SSD)

Not to sure about the types, as the drive does not seem to mention it.
Also there is no limitation on the Asus page, so I can only assume its OK?

Thanks
