I would expect they all would work, but I cannot guarantee since I have not tried that combination.  If it were me, I would wait until I had a firm ship date and make sure I could return the parts if there is a problem.  Depending on how your P50 is configured, you may need caddies and a cable

hi Reaper_1_1, as said, it would help if you post the config you are getting.

 

I am guessing you went for the cheapest storage, spinning disk as to get it replaced by cheaper markets parts. if that is the case, and you got a 2.5 spinning disk, then you would need two M2. trays, about 10 bucks each from lenovo. it is basically piece of plastic on which your M2 will rest. for the 2.5 SSD I dont think you would need anything, as the 2.5 you will get already has the caddy.

 

can I ask, do you plan to run them in any sort of RAID or just three independent disks?

 

similarly for RAM; with Xeon there is the option to use ECC memory. are you interested in ECC memory?

Do both MSATA and PCI Express NVME drivers work in the P70 using the same socket?
