XPS 8900 SSD M2.0 port mounting screw size?

Jump to solution

Does anyone know what size the screw (#1 in the picture) is that secures an SSD in the M2.0 slot on the XPS 8900 mother board?

Two different Dell support people referred me to the correct screw for the XPS8900, which I received, and is confirmed to work.


It is M2x3.5, NOT M2x3. The official Dell part is:

6JPHH1SCREW, M2X3.5, WIFI/SSD/DDPE, DF

(or just part number 6JPHH).

screws have more than 1 spec.

for instance  slot screws are usually 6-32 x 1/4 inch

Those I think are 2.0 or 2.5 or 3.0 or 4.0 mm but I don't know the thread pitch.

Then there is the issue of the LENGHTH of the screw.

M2.5x4mm OEM Wafer Head

Machine Screw

 

Average Overall Length: 4.59mm

Average Head Width: 5.33mm

Average Head Thickness: 0.77

Thread Pitch: 0.45

Drive: Phillips

 again this is totally a guess.

Thanks!  I searched around for a month for this answer.

I had found a 0-80 screw that would thread, but ultimately was too long. And the head, too narrow. Big pain!

Thanks again!!
