This is the best forum category I could come up with for this.
I am considering upgrading to a skylake motherboard from my haswell one, primarily to increase my RAM from 16GB to 32GB. This is a mini-ITX system, so only 2 RAM slots are possible.
My only hesitation is that the mobo which best fits my needs has an m.2 slot, whereas my current machine has a mini pcie card slot. I am using a mini pci-e card which will not be ever made as an m.2 card, and I want to keep using it if possible.
I have seen a few adapters to convert a mini pci-e slot to m.2, but none that go the other way around. Has anyone seen this, or have any alternative ideas on how to do this?
The mini pci-e card I have is for firewire. I am planning to buy a presonus audio interface that uses firewire. The product I have is this:
More interestingly though - what are these 16gb RAM chips of which you speak? My motherboard (gigabyte h87n wifi), along with all other *87 series motherboards to my knowledge, lists a maximum memory of 8gb per slot. Is it possible to surpass this?
