HP CX0056WM Harddrive width

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming CX0056WM
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi had this gaming laptop a while, struggling for space and I have had it open twice once for installing an m.2 and another for adding more Ram. I soon want to upgrade the harddrive capacity but I dont want to open it up just to check the thickness of the drive I am limited too. I have seen a few different thicknesses from 9mm to 15mm 2.5 drives and need to know mine. Before I open it up again I figured to ask here first. Its not my main gaming PC so if its open for a while I dont mind however my wife uses it more then me so It would have to be limited time. I am looking at a 4tb 2.5 drive.

CX0056WM is an invalid model/product. Is it an HP Gaming Pavilion - 15-cx0056wm ? Its specs




It has  1 TB 7200 rpm SATA HDD. All standard HDD's for notebooks/laptops use same 2.5" drives. For thickness, it supports


                6.35-cm (2.5-in) SATA hard drives in 9.5-mm (.37-in) and 7.0-mm/7.2-mm (.28-in) thicknesses


As you can see, max is 9.5mm. Normally 4TB HDD's are 12.5mm thickness which won't physically fit.  If you could find 4TB with 9.5mm thickness it should fit your machine physically.
