Pavilion Gaming 690 front LED control? Also, can I add a second M.2 NVME SSD in the second M.2 slot?

HP Pavilion Gaming 690-0073w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Is there any way to customize, or even turn off, the two green LEDs without unplugging the LEDs from the motherboard?

Sorry for the two-parter, but I hoped these are both relatively simple; I work in IT and I'm relatively savvy, but not familiar with the M.2 spec... Are there any conflicts to adding a second M.2 SSD? I see there are 2x M.2 slots, and I'm not sure what else I would use that for.

@soapboxrhythm , welcome to the forum.

 

Q:  Is there any way to customize, or even turn off, the two green LEDs without unplugging the LEDs from the motherboard?

A:  I don't believe that there is a way to control or turn off the LED lights in the case.  I have had several HP desktops with the lights and there has never been any controls for them, except to change colors with Omen Command Center.

 

Q:  Are there any conflicts to adding a second M.2 SSD? I see there are 2x M.2 slots, and I'm not sure what else I would use that for.

A:  One of the sockets is for a M.2 socket 1, 2230 type for WLAN and the other is for a M.2 socket 3, 2280 type for SSD.  You can't use the first socket for a M.2, SSD.  Here is the Motherboard Specifications page for the computer.  Look at the section titled "Expansion Slots" to see the information that I provided.
