MSATA. Will it fit with any PCI?

I'm trying to find out if a mSATA SSD will fit into my any of my MOBO's PCI slots. I don't know a lot about this, but it looks like it fits. My motherboard is a Biostar N683 . Thanks for your help! Here's the link to the SSD

    While mSATA is mechanically and electrically compatible with PCIe x1, the PC's chipset would need to support SATA protocol on PCIe lanes for this to work since the SSD itself is SATA.

    If the SSD supported PCIe directly, that would work out too but the manufacturer's specs make no mention of that.
