It’ll hold your drive down just fine, to the point where you don’t even need to bother with the M.2 screws when you do find them. Though the drives might come loose If you move your PC around a lot. Skip the M.2 Screw entirely Each screw size is described using two numbers – the ‘M’ number and a number indicating the length of the shank, in mm, so M2 screw dimensions of M2 x8, are 8mm long, measured under the screw head.

Screw: Finding The Ideal Size For Your Drive M2 SSD Screw: Finding The Ideal Size For Your Drive

An M2 SSD screw missing can be a bit of a hassle, but you can easily find a replacement. You just need to keep the following things in mind: To the left are two posts, the nearer one to the M.2 slot is not the problem but the one to the left of that is (just to the right where it says front usb). I haven't been that bothered by the screws myself. My biggest issue was that most motherboards don't have a screw there by default. Seems to be that the SSDs themselves generally have come with the screws. Why don't they just include at least one screw in the longest position so it's there ready to go and can be moved to whatever location is needed? Asus and MSI: https://www.microcenter.com/product/510551/micro-connectors-m2-ssd-mounting-screws-kit Also, stupid question, on mine the screw was already in place as well, isn't yours already on the mobo ?Knowing these measurements can help you buy the right size, especially if you’re looking for a replacement. – Where Can You Buy the M2 Screw? The ideal screw size for an M2 SSD is a screw with dimensions 2x 3 mm. This means that the M2’s external diameter is 2 mm. However, it’s not always exact 2; it can sometimes be between 1.9 and 2 mm because of manufacturing tolerances. Can You Use Any Screw for M2? And do all motherboards include the same screw for the M2 SSD? Typically, SSDs include screws with a standard thread count and size. But they’re very easy to lose, in which case you can buy an M.2 screw kit separately. FAQ While it is possible to use any regular M2 screw to mount your SSD, you will have to experiment a bit to find if it holds down the driver. For most people, a 3 mm or 8 mm long M2 with 2 mm wide threads with a round head does the job, but that might not be the case with your motherboard.

An M2 screw has a standard pitch of 0.4 mm, but you might need a screw with a non-standard pitch depending on your motherboard and SSD. If you just want to make sure the drive stays where you put it and want something that’s lowkey. This is an option.Not sure if your board has the standoffs or not. Mine did not, but others I have DID have the standoff and screw included. My old one might have had it in box at one point, and I just didn't need it at the time and lost it. M2 SSDs usually don’t include the mounting screws, whether they are SATA-based or PCIe based, making it difficult to secure the drive in the system. This includes SSDs from brands like Samsung. If you can’t find the M2 screw that came with your SSD, you can try one of these three options. Just make sure you don’t force the screw in its place if it doesn’t fit correctly. Instead, the screws for mounting the SSD come with the motherboard or the mounting kit you’re planning to install it in. – Why Don’t Some SSDs Come With the Screw? As the name implies, they’re screws designated to screw in M.2 drives into your motherboard. And they can be a right nuisance at times because they have a tendency to magically disappear when you actually need them.

Our Dell Optiplex PCs at work have been using a plastic "clip" to hold the SSDs for some time I think. Looks like this... Some people have also been successful in using screws from their old laptops, like the front screw present on the laptop’s chassis. It might be a little long for some motherboards, but if you’re handy enough, you can file it down using a kitchen sharpening stone. Some people even found the screw on a regular pencil sharpener to be the right fit. Get some actual M.2 screws and do it right. But in the meantime… Look for Old Small Screws in Your Home On a side note. Not sure why both of them have MSI listed. But I do know that I bought one kit, and couldn't get it to work in my motherboard (Gigabyte). Bought the other kit and it was fine.Just went through this and tried Blue tac – I know, I know … of course as the machine environment warms up the blue tac softens. My OS’s became unstable and then this morning the BIOS could not find the drive at all. It had sprung up and was at an angle – 31 Degrees perhaps? As this was an additional drive I used the screw from the smaller capacity drive and removed it. Miraculously no harm seems to have been done. But who knows at this stage? so my advice is to wait – you know it makes sense – until you have a proper screw.
