  • 1Description

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.

Two Hyper Express Modes
  • 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
Hyper Express is installed into a standard 3.5" drive bay, enabling you to keep your desk neat and tidy. Just slide it into place, secure with the supplied screws, and connect the 2-pin front-panel LED cable. When the LED on your case lights up, Hyper Express is installed successfully. Use either two M.2 or two mSATA SSDs of the same type for the best compatibility and performance.

    Hyper Express M.2/mSATA Enclosure is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only useful as an internal drive While I can't actually use it, I'm not going to give it zero stars. I trust Asus to make reliable products. I just wanted to warn people that the enclosure itself does NOT have a standard SATA connector. It has a SAS connector. An adapter cable is supplied... However it's useless as a hot-swap adapter, which I was going to use it for. Just a heads up.
