Solved!

HP Z Drive with Samsung 960 Pro

HP Recommended
HP z840
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

Hello everyone!

 

I have a HP z840 Workstation and a HP Z Drive (G1) as Main drive. This one got dusty the last 2 years and I want to replace it with the new Samsung 960 Pro.

 

Is it possible to replace the SSD on the HP Z drive with the 960 Pro SSD and use the HP card as the new SSD holder?

 

 

Thanks in advance,

 

best regards,

Granroyal

Not sure that it is worth going this route - the Z Drive G1 has an AHCI style controller, while the 960 Pro is NVMe.

For the 960 Pro you could get a $5 m.2 to PCIe adapter card from e.g. Ali Express or - at a higher price ($20-25) - the Asus Hyper m.2 PCIe expansion card. Both would work fine with the 960 Pro.
