I recently purchased this (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002336940143.html) m.2 X16 TO 4X NVME PCIE3.0, without bifucation I cannot get it to work with my older motherboards:
ASUS p8Z77-V Pro
MSI X99S SLI PLUS
ASUS P9X79 PRO
I am looking for a cheapish upgrade to get this NVME PCI card to work, what do I look for in a motherboard to ensure I can use this card and use RAID on this card?
Since your request is hardware and not driver related, I have moved the thread into the "Off Topic" Sub-Forum.
Why did you buy the 4xM.2 NVMe PCIe card? In my eyes it is not worth to buy a new/other mainboard, CPU and DRAM modules to be able to use the add-on PCIe card.
Maybe you will be able to get an Intel RST NVMe RAID array working with your X99 Chipset MSI mainboard, but I am not sure about it.
