I want to get rid of the integrated 1TB hard drive and use a 512 or 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD
Does the motherboard support NVMe? Can the motherboard boot from an NVMe drive? Can I use a Heatsink and how big? What is the size of that M.2 slot? 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280 or 22110? Does it support Gen3x4? Why does Speccy say it is "In Use", it should be empty, is there anything else that could had been installed there? Would WD SSD BLACK SN750 1Tb M.2 2280 NVMe Read/Write: 3470 / 3000 MB/s, 515k/560k IOPS, TBW 600TB Heatsink fit and work for the machine for an example?

Solid and honest feedback on the main problem of this machine: It overheats. It overhears A LOT. Current CPU temperature is 83°C. But that is not related to the questions, that's just feedback for HP to keep in mind and fix in future machines.
