For now till Samsung & Plextor release 1-TB M.2 SSD's this fall,.. only way to run 1-TB would be with a PCIe 3.0X16 NGFF/M.2 adapter that will run dual 512GB SSD's @ 985 MB/s per lane,.. from "Soliton Technologies" in Taiwan.
And go with the 512GB Samsung XP941 M.2 PCIe SSD,.. runs @ 1170 MB/s read and 970 MB/s write,.. from "RamCity" in Sydny, Australia.
I just checked both sites and they have items in stock,.. but this set up is not cheep,..
There is your answer OP,
I'm starting to think OCC users these days can't read...
In the OP it states the board he intends to use has an onboard M.2 slot, THAT is what he wants to use, STOP SUGGESTING HE USE SOMETHING ELSE AS A "SOLUTION" WHEN IT"S NOT WHAT HE WANTS FOR SUCH A SMALL BUILD
With all that said, I think his best advice would be to read what I posted in his other build thread, a large chunk of the tech you want to use isn't out yet, no point in shopping around and buying stuff now to have it sit in the box or on your desk for a few months while you wait, chances are by the time you NEED the 1TB SSD someone will have one ready for sale through Newegg/Amazon/etc ready for the buying because it usually doesn't take long for something of this type to move from OEM only to "here's a retail version give us money"
