Hi guys!

So I'm looking at MSI H110I Pro. In Specification, it says:

M.2 Slot: 1x 2280 Key M(PCIe Gen2 x 4)

Does that mean for this board, I have to get the PCIe type instead of SATA type? Or both work? I want to get the latter one because it's cheaper.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Well, time to find another one which can support both.
You're most welcome. That said. You are better off asking MSI directly. Their website and documentation are very confusing as to whether the M.2 slot supports a SATA SSD or not.
