Upgrading my Probook 650 G2 with an NVMe SSD

HP Recommended
Probook 650 G2
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm wanting to upgrade my Probook 650 G2 with a 500+ NVMe SSD.    According to the spec sheets and manuals I've been able to find, the only NVMe drive supported would be a 256 GB PCIe-3x4 DS NVMe.  However, I don't know if that was a technological or marketed limitation imposed at the time; or if it's a BIOS, memory, or other physical limitation of the system. 


I am able to find NMVe drives that look as though they should work, such as the Silicon Power 512GB NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen3x4 2280 TLC, which seems to just be a bigger version of the 256 GB PCIe-3x4 DS NVMe found in the spec sheets and manual.  I know the chipset supports bigger drives, because the system also shows that it supports a 512 GB SATA-3 TLC drive.  So I'm just wondering if it's ok to use an unrecommended NVMe SSD configuration on my laptop.

Any help appreciated.
