I was looking for a way to add a PCIe nmve drive to my Dell poweredge 820 running Windows Server 2019.
The following parts worked.

NVMe drive Intel® SSD 600p Series (256GB, M.2 80mm PCIe 3.0 x4, 3D1, TLC) Product Specifications

I picked this adapter because it comes with a Heatsink and shouldn’t disrupt airflow

Right now I just have one small 256mb drive but I’m planning to install a few more. Nice thing about the R820 is there’s a lot if PCIe slots available.

Just an FYI - I didn’t try to boot off of the drive, but I was able to attach the drive to a vm.
