It's been said that Sintech NGFF (not fit early 2020 Macbook Pro) is the fastest ever SSD adapter. With Sintech, the M.2 NVME SSD adapter can be used in a M.2 NVME SSD enclosure.
There's an adapter card for each PCIe x4 lanes. To use the card in the Macbook Pro, you'll need the Mac Pro, a Mac Pro-to-NVMe adapter, and a Sintech NGFF adapter card.
The adapter card must match the Macbook Pro's PCIe connector. For the regular Macbook Pro, you'll need a PCIe x8 slot. If you're upgrading your computer, make sure to get the adapter card with the right slot.
If you are connecting two mac pro towers, the mac pro must have one of the two slots, so make sure to check before purchasing. Otherwise, you will lose one of the slots.
To use the adapter, it is recommended to remove the original NVME adapter. Take note that in some models, the entire system might be removed; thus, one has to put off the M.2 NVME card first, if it's not already on the top right side of the notebook. To do so, flip the case right side up and then remove the cables.
Once the system is uninstalled, open the primary drive bay of the mac. Then, remove the storage devices and accessories attached to the mac. There is a special metal bracket for the M.2 Adapter, which comes with a screw that locks the M.2 adapter inside. Once the aluminum bracket is off, it can be removed. After that, disconnect the USB adapters that are attached to the adapter and the mac computer. Keep them separate so they will not be damaged. Disconnect the SATA cables and the soundcard cables from the adapter. Do not forget to disconnect the power cable.
Now, place the card on the edge of the motherboard, between the six card slots. Put the card in the bottom slot of the mac's primary drive, under the six clips for the slots. You can now plug the adapter into the mac's power cable.
The adapter must be in a straight line and only two cards in each line. One must be the expansion cards and the other must be the m.2 slots. Now, select the correct card by placing the card that is connected to the mac in the slot that's on the bottom left corner of the mac's expansion cards.
Now, locate the tabs in the top left corner of the mac and slide the expansion cards in and out of the slots on the mac's SSD card. This will ensure that all cards are properly seated and locked into place. For the slots, the adapters must fit under the clips that should be tightly secured. With the adapters inserted, close the bottom metal bracket of the adapter.
To finish the installation, make sure to power the mac, disconnect the power cable and switch off the power. Then, place the card on the top right side of the map, where the adapter has been inserted. To complete the installation, push the tab inside the slot that is on the bottom of the adapters, which makes the slots snugly secure.
If you arenot able to find a working adapter for your mac, you can take the card and swap it with another mac. After that, plug the adapter card in the mac computer and turn it on. If everything went well, the card should work and display the M.2 NVME logo.
