The ASUS Hyper Express Enclosure is installed into your desktop's 3.5" drive bay to provide you with two slots that can support M.2 and mSATA drives. Each of the slots is able to support a single SATA-based storage drive that sports an M.2 or mSATA design. The enclosure is compatible with computers running Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 – but not Windows 10 – and connects via an included SATA Express cable and a 2-pin front-panel LED cable. Once installed, the onboard RAID controller can configure your drives in a RAID 0 array, improving the drives' performance.
- Normal mode (AHCI): Install M.2 and mSATA SSDs side by side, and use them as distinct devices
- Super Speed mode (RAID 0): Stripe your data across two M.2 or two mSATA SSDs for the ultimate performance
