    Hey there,

    I am looking for an SLOG Drive for my FreeNAS build.
    I was trying to buy a Intel DC P3700 PCI-E, but there are none that are decently priced on Ebay...

    I stumbled across those drives:
    Intel SSD DC P3600 800GB NVMe U.2 SSDPE2ME800G4- SSD - 800GB - intern - 6,4 cm | eBay

    but tbh: I am completely lost with all those "new" interfaces...
    Is the any adapter that would allow me to use one of those drives with a pcie slot?
    Or a SAS3 HBA?

    Thank you very much! I will buy one of those :)

    @ullbeking
    That is really a great card and I will keep it in mind for sure.
    Right now it seems a bit overkill as I never used NVMe yet and my board has 6 PCIe Slots of which four are unused

    I bought 10 Intel SSD DC P3600 400GB (2.5") and in my brilliance I bought matching adapters like the StarTech one listed above. And then after a few days I asked myself, are those half height adapters? I have some paper weights coming in the mail now.

    I couldn't seem to find any low profile adapter cards for cheap. Any suggestions?

    These are going in 4 2U SuperMircro servers.

    Thanks
