Re: P50 M.2 NVMe caddy? 4XB0K59917?

2019-01-24, 8:24 AM

Thanks for the update, I wish they would fix the documentation, clarify the differeces between the 2 trays (is it just the thermal pad?) and that the 4XB0K59917 version would be available on Lenovo website.

It seems that the problem isn't just in the documantation, there are versions of the 4XB0K59917 FRU 00UR868 witout the thermal pad.
The lenovo support refferred me to 4XB0K59917 (manufacured by Lenovo) on Amazon that doesn't have a thermal pad
https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-4XB0K59917-ThinkPad-Storage-Adapter/dp/B01ALBIFA4
and suggested to purchase the pad separately.

Disclaimer: I am not trying to necro the thread for necroing's sake, but because I am seeking info.
Having read all of this, I contacted Lenovo's service center and asked about the tray with the thermal pad.  They knew little and were just as confused as many of us seem to have been.  I did more searching of the internet and came across a few results.
Does:

1) https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Orginal-Internal-ThinkPad-AP0Z6000700/dp/B01N9NQ6WA/ or 

2) https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-4XB0K59917-ThinkPad-Storage-Adapter/dp/B01ALBIFA4

include (or look like it includes) the thermal pad (as needed for an NVME M.2 drive for my P50)?
(There is also this German website, which I cannot read, except for "LENOVO ThinkPad M.2-SSD-Tray mit Thermal Pad #4XB0K59917," but I am assuming it is the correct part and might be useful for EU residents--which I am not.)

Thank you.

PS: If 1) is the correct part, customer reviews state that it comes without the necessary screw to hold the drive onto the tray.  Does anyone know where one could purchase that screw?
PPS: Does the part listed at B&H contain the thermal pad? Sorry for all the confusion on my end.

Hello,


The gray foam pad shown in https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Orginal-Internal-ThinkPad-AP0Z6000700/dp/B01N9NQ6WA/ is the thermal pad.  I ordered the part direct from Lenovo, but do not recall if mine came with a screw or there was one inside my P50 for it as I did the installation about three years ago.  If you wanted to be on the safe side, you could order a generic "laptop screw kit" with different screw sizes along with the tray adapter.

 

Regards,

I just received a new NVMe drive for my P50 and I completely forgot that it requires a frickin' sled. 🤦‍♂️

I guess I'll just have to secure it with chewing gum and coffee stirrers until the 4XB0K59917 I ordered arrives from China in 2 weeks.

 

What could go wrong. 😬

😂 Dude that's awesome!

I was just getting ready to over-engineer my own solution, but when I tested the bare card in the slot I realized that it wasn't heavy enough to pull out under it's own weight—even if the computer was shaken and jostled forcefully (I tried). My P50 rarely leaves my desk so this is a non-issue.

 

Once fitted into the slot, the card's movement is restricted to a bit of flopping on the connector axis, so I propped it up with a precision-trimmed piece of cork and called it a day!

 

I reckon I'll open it up again soon and implement a more robust solution, but this was certainly enough to get my data transferred.

 

Now we'll see how important that thermal pad is (or isn't).

I used a radiator from Aliexpress - because my Crucial MX500 is very warm.

Oooh... IN-ter-est-ing!

 

There's no airflow in the drive bay so I'm not sure what good a heat spreader will do.

Also, I got the WD SN550 which has only a single memory chip and no RAM buffer so it probably runs cooler than most NVMe drives.

 

That said, heatsinks are rad so I'm going to order one 😉.

 

What thickness did you get? I'm thinking 3-5mm.

Yes, the thickness of the radiator is 3 mm (and instead of a thermal pad I used paste).

And if without it SSD warmed up to 80 degrees Celsius, then with it only up to 55. 

So, in my case, there is a point.
