M.2 SSD - is NVMe 2280 stick Ok on my system? And how large if compatible?

HP Recommended
Envy 795-0037cb
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I would like to install an M.2 SSD to speed up my system.  Product Envy 795-0037cb.  Windows 10 Home 64 bit.  M.2 slot for SSD exists, key M.  I saw a youtube video where exact product number had installed a 250GB NVMe stick.  My confusion is that I see posts that suggest that my M.2 socket 3 slot only supports SATA III, not NVMe.  Board is Berks HP 844C 00.  BIOS upgraded a little while back.  UEFI: AMI F.42 06/23/2020 is what I can find.

The specs of your machine is

 

           https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c06020221

 

Its motherboard has following Expansion slots

 

  • One PCIe x16 socket
  • One PCIe x4 socket
  • Two PCIe x1 sockets
  • One M.2 socket 1, key A
  • One M.2 socket 3, key M

In general, Socket 3 is for storage, it can be M.2 SATA or M.2 NVMe, in this case, it is for M.2 NVMe SSD drive.  You can add 2280 form factor1TB or 2TB (or 4TB rare, my guess is it should work).

 

Regards.

you did not say boot drive, but if replacing that yes, that works but not the other slot.(for m2 sdd)

speed up (implies boot sure)

but no current card m2. you have booted now and running told, if not better drive will not speed up the OS.

here is the place to learn which are ACTUALLY faster.
