X1 Carbon Gen 4 - Compatible with Samsung NVMe SSD 960PRO 2TB?

I would like to upgrade the SSD for the X1C Gen 4 from 1TB to 2TB. Does X1C Gen 4 compatible with Samesung NVMe SSD  960PRO 2TB?

I have upgraded mine with the 1TB 960 Pro version, don't see why the 2TB would not work.

 

Be very careful when you remove the screw as mine was cheap aluminium - not metal as previous X1's - and required cutting out.

 

Also consider a thermal pad 1mm height to transfer the heat to the bottom plate of the laptop as these things can get quite hot. The SSD does have some sort of thermal layer so don't remove that.

Thanks for your reply. I just not sure whether the controller is able to recognize the 2TB capacity.

Can you use a vendor that is happy to take the product back if not compatible?

 

With PCIe SSDs e.g. NVMe the controller is part of the SSD - you are effectively connecting it directly to the PCIe bus. I can't imagine the BIOS won't recognise a 2TB SSD - but personally I only tested 1TB version.

Yes, it works. I have successfully upgraded to 2TB without issue.
