Adding SSD drive - HP OMEN

HP Recommended
OMEN 30L GT13-0414no
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello,

 

I recently bought a HP OMEN GT13-0414no desktop which has a 512 GB WD (black) PCIe® NVMe™ TLC M.2 SSD. I would like to add a drive, e.g. a 2TB SSD or similar.

 

I don't have any experience with NVMe's, and haven't changed or added any drives since SATA HDD's were the go-to solution. I would generally prefer to use a standard SSD drive, but if I need to go NVMe that's allright.

 

How can I find out if there any available slots on the motherboard, or where I should mount a drive? F.y.i. it seems it has a Intel® Z490 motherboard, and is stated to have the following slots available for upgrade/addons in the manual:

3 M.2; 1 PCIe x16; 1 PCIe x1

 

So my question is - if possible, where can I mount an extra SSD, and which kind of drive would fit my system?

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Sincerely,

Even

 

EDIT:

It seems there are also two pre-wired open slots for HDD/SSD drives. Manual says 3,5''. Am I locked to 3,5'' SSD (which are super expensive for some reason) if I don't want to use HDD?

Hi,

 

Thank you for reply! Using this I have found some pre-routed cables to a HD rack. What kind of SSD can I connect here? It seems like they suggest 3,5'' HDD. Is it possible to use a 2.5'' SSD in the same slot?
