What type of SSD disk can i install, want to upgrade my storage capacity.

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion gaming desktop TG01-1057
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey!

 

I just bought a HP pavilion gaming desktop and from the specifications i read "Expansionslots: 2x M.2 | 1x PCIe x16 | 1x PCIe x1 " What does that actually mean? I have bought a M2 intel 665p SSD 1tb card which i was gonna install but there is no room except for the stock SSD installed.

From what i can see, there are 3 cables loose inside the desktop which seems to be for SATA disks, if that is the case what sort of SATA disk should i use and is anyone familiar with these adapters that exist on the market which converts m2  to SATA sockets.


The computer is primarly used for gaming.


Really hope i can get some good answers, there seems to be no possible way to get a phone number to the HP support and im not so good on this section!

Hello
I do not know if it is this model, there are different variations, but to tell the truth it will not change much to the answer

You will have no interest, even if it is done and it works to connect an m2 on a sata port!
The best you could do already would be to check if it works instead of the original one.

Yes it is in my opinion the best options you have ..
But it happens that some models just are not compatible with the motherboard
there all we can say is what is mentioned, and again an ssd with the required characteristics, might not work very well

One M.2 socket 3, Key M, (2280/2242)

Internal Storage
512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD

@Westergren 

The TG01 series supports from the motherboard.  There is an M.2 NVMe SSD socket and 3 SATA device headers. Hopefully the cabling exists. SATA data and SATA power cables are supported from the motherboard ONLY.

1) NVMe SSD

2) Two 3.5" SATA hard drives

 

You can see the 2nd hard drive tray being lifted. Below is the NVMe. To the right is the other hard drive mount.

Hey,

 

Okey, so you're saying that there is only one possible m2 sockets avalible on the motherboard and then 3 sata SSD/HDD drivers can be installed? I've attached some pictures from inside the computer.

Is it only 3,5 tums that i can use or does 2,5 work?1.jpg2.jpg3.jpg4.jpg

Hello
for my part, I have not yet checked your images
as i said, what you can do is test the new m2 if it works so much better!
If you want to add storage, if the conditions are there (free space, sata data cables and power supply possible) you can install the classic sata 3.5 hard drive choices!
And depending on the compartments, if only 3.5 possibly a 2.5 ssd with support to buy 2.5 to 3.5 to install it

 

you can try this :
