Lenovo v330 15IKB 15.6 Nvme Storage

I am looking for some fast Nvme storage 1TB - 2TB  up £350. Not fuzz on brand.


I looking at this "WD Black SN750 High-Performance NVMe Internal Gaming SSD, 1 TB" would this fix?  Also would I have room to have a heatsink on top of the Nvme storage?


I did looked at the "Intel 660p ssd 512GB 1TB" They looked bit slow. 


Also the "Samsung 970 EVO PLUS" unfortunately it is not stable on the operating system I want to use. People are waiting for a firmware update to fix the problem.


My Laptop Lenovo V330-15IKB 15.6"  Intel Core i7-8550U, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD, AMD Radeon 530 2GB Graphics  - 81AX012SUK


Thank you

Re: Lenovo v330 15IKB 15.6 Nvme Storage

Hi andrewvideo,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


The specification requirements does match being an NVMe PCie 3.0 x 4 but not with the capacity. OEM only offers this for 128 GB / 256 GB / 512 GB (page 26 HMM) so there is no guarantee that more than 512GB will work ok. Even Crucial do not have more than 500GB offered on their site but the SATA can go up to 2TB.


Checking on the location may also limit this with the heatsink spreader preventing a good closure of the bottom case cover. As of now, there is no confirmed case so best to limit you to OEM tested m.2 SSD as listed on the hardware manual (FRU list item 9 page 82). 


I hope this helps answer your query.
