ROG Scar Strix 16, G634 - SSD compatability

Vatel

Hello fellow gamers!

I recently bought this monster of a laptop, and i wonder if "Kingston KC3000 M.2 2280 NVMe SSD 4 TB" will fit into the second PCI-e slot.

Thanks!

Without an additional radiator, it will fit, but this drive gets very hot under stress and requires an additional radiator with a maximum height of 1.5mm. Mounting a drive with a heatsink in the second slot can be difficult.

Are there any options i should look at?

Maybe a Gen.3 SSD since is has lower MB/s transfer rate?

In a laptop with the same CPU (G14JI), I have a KC3000 2GB in the first slot, but I had to add a heatsink. Yes, it seems that installing a slower drive will cause less problems.

2 TB, not 2 GB - correction. 😁

Will a Kingston KC3000 with 2TB be ok then? Or will there still be heat issues?

Without heat dissipation, the "Kingston KC3000" 2TB was able to heat up to 80°C under stress.

Can you link an SSD from amazon that fits well? I prefer 4TB. 

Thanks!
