Knowledgebase Article

This document describes the compatibility between Intel® Desktop Boards and solid-state drives (SSDs).

SSD Type Image Notes
mini-SATA (mSATA) - Native The following boards support mSATA natively:
  • DH61AG
  • DH77EB
  • DH77KC
  • DH87MC
  • DH87RL
  • DN2800MT
  • DQ77MK
  • DQ77KB
  • DZ87KLT-75K
You do not need to use any adapter to install the drive; just connect it directly to either the full or half-mini card slot.
mSATA - with adapter

To connect an mSATA SSD to an Intel® Desktop Board that does NOT natively support mSATA, you must use a third party mSATA-to-SATA converter/adapter.

The mSATA SSD drive 'plugs into' the adapter. Then connect the adapter to an available SATA port using a standard SATA cable.

Standard SATA

SSDs in the standard SATA form factor are compatible with Intel® Desktop Boards that support SATA.

Connect the drive to an available SATA port using a standard SATA cable.
