    Intel Fultondale 3 DC P3600 2.5" PCI-Express 3.0 MLC

    Atomicboss_00

      I purchased this item. "Intel Fultondale 3 DC P3600 2.5" PCI-Express 3.0 MLC" I thought I was getting a PCIE 3.0 ready to plug into my PCIE slot on the motherboard.

       

      What I got was just the SSD itself and no way to plug it into the motherboard rather the PCIE slot.

          Hello Atomicboss_00,

           

          All Intel® Solid-State Drive DC P3600 Series are PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 devices. However, there are two different form factors.

           

          As we understand, you ordered a 2.5-inch SFF drive instead of the HHHL Add-in card Form Factor (Half-height, Half-length AIC).

           

          In this situation, we advise you to contact the reseller or place of purchase, so you can ask them about possible solutions for this issue (exchange, return, or other).

           

          The SFF drive requires an 8639 connector backplane, and we are not aware of supported adapters or converters that will allow the connection of the SFF DC P3600 to a standard PCIe x4 slot.

           

          Intel® Solid-State Drive DC P3600 Series Form Factors:

           

          – 2.5-inch Form Factor

            15mm Z-height

            8639-compatible connector

           

          – AIC Form Factor (Add-in Card)

            Half-height, Half-length

            Single slot x4 connector
