PC owners now have a new option for adding fast storage as Sabrent has quietly launched the updated version of its 4-drive PCIe adapter card. As the prices for PCIe 4.0 NVMe drives continue to drop PC users wanting large amounts of storage can still sometimes be left with limited options so adapter cards like this, which some motherboard manufacturers also provide, can be a clean and easy solution. Sabrent previously launched a version of this card in January which supported PCIe 3.0 but it has now been updated to PCIe 4.0 x16 along with active cooling.

The EC-P4BF is backward compatible with PCIe 3.0/2.0 but does require bifurcation support in order to install more than one drive and take advantage of all 16 lanes. RAID is also supported via Intel VROC and AMD Ryzen RAID with drives being capable of being operated via software and UEFI, including Windows Storage Devices. The active cooling solution is a combination of an aluminum casing with fins, a switch-operated fan, and thermal pads for all four SSDs for heat dispersion. Rear-mounted LEDS indicate drive(s) status. The Sabrent EC-P4BF is available via the Sabrent store or Amazon for $99.99 and comes with a 1-year warranty without registration or 2 years with.

EC-P4BF Details

  • Add up to four high-performance NVMe SSDs to a system with a single adapter in a physical x16 PCIe slot.
  • The system requires the PCIe bifurcation (lane splitting) function to add more than one SSD with the full 16 lanes required for 3 or 4 drives.
  • Supports even the fastest PCIe 4.0 SSDs but also works with older and newer generation SSDs at up to 4.0 speeds.
  • Works in older 3.0/2.0 systems that have PCIe bifurcation support. Compatible with NVMe SSDs in the M.2 2230/2242/2260/2280 form factors for your convenience.
  • Designed with quality aluminum for physical stability and top-notch cooling. Thermal padding is included to ensure the best cooling interface for your SSDs.
  • Optional active cooling (fan) via a rear-positioned switch for high-performance environments. Your drives won’t throttle in here.
  • The card is plug-and-play with no drivers required. Supports Intel® VROC and AMD Ryzen™ NVMe RAID with their respective limitations.


  • System Requirements: A motherboard and BIOS-compatible with PCIe Bifurcation (also called PCIe Splitting) is required. For instance: Intel VROCK / AMD Ryzen NVMe RAID.
  • Dimensions: 7.1 (Length) x 5.4 (Width) x 0.65 (Height) inches. Weight is 17 oz.
  • Box Contents: 4-DRIVE NVMe SSD to PCIe 4.0 x16 card with active cooling, all necessary screws, quick user guide.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
