    I purchased 2 Samsung 860 Evo M.2 SATA SSD's and a StarTech PCIe card. I assumed that I would get SATA3 speeds from it, similar to the OWC Excelsior, but apparently I have to connect SATA cables from the card to the MoBo and will only get SATA2 speeds? Are there any PCIe cards that will take M.2 SATA SSD's and run at SATA3 speeds? What are my options? I'm not interested in a RAID config.
