Hi SkArPoX,

 

I am afraid it won't work. As far as I know crucial's M.2 drives are SATA based drives, they use SATA interface. 

Z97-A user manual says:

- 1 x M.2 Socket 3, with M Key, type 2260/2280 storage devices support (supports PCIE SSD only)

 

It seems your motherboard supports M.2 SSD with PCIE interface only - take a look at this article http://forum.crucial.com/t5/The-Cru/mSATA-and-M-2-SSDs/ba-p/167881
