Just a guess, but I'd wager the same parts the 5570 takes would fit the 5580 (I couldn't find that model on the USA support site)...  

i.e. X3YR8 bracket and 1X2MT thermal cover.

ebay.com/itm/332103428021 (more-than 10 available; includes screws, too)

ballicom.co.uk/manufacturers/dell.104439/ (first 2 parts on that page - no pictures there)

Did not find a seller in DE... that doesn't mean there are none; I went through only the first 2 (out of 5) pages of results in google.

Darr.darr,

thank you for your feedback and the links . According to my information, the 5580 is the 5570 update with kaby lake architecture. Please see the Dell homepage for more information:

http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/latitude-15-5580-laptop/pd?ref=PD_Family

I had a look at the 5570 parts and they seem to differ to what is used in the 5580 (source: Dell Latitude 5580 Owner's Manual). The SSD clip shown here looks different, that's why I was asking...

I might have to give Dell tech support a call....

Thank you and best regards

Markus

@Saltgrass,

Please note that I'm not an expert on drive performance but I have my statement for you below:

It's my understanding that the number of lanes is a separate specification from the actual throughput speed supported by any one model. Example: 4X throughput from say a E5570 may be different from the 4X throughput speed on a Precision 7710. When I submit my questions to Dell engineering they're not related to throughput speed and historically, Dell does not give out exact throughput speeds per model.

@Markus15,

Thank you for your kind feedback. Yes, I plan to get more information on the new models in the near future. Below is what I have so far for your 5580

2FFR0 - M.2 frame ( clip on the end )

X3DN4 -Thermal plate

4270E - End screw

My new XPS 13 9365 2-in-1 came with the Toshiba M.2 PCIe drive configured as a SATA drive.  If there is some reason, other than the Bios Update situation, I need to know it.

I just put a Samsung 960 Pro in as a PCIe drive and if there is a problem, such as heat, I need to remove it.

Thanks.

@Saltgrass,

The XPS 9365 does support NVME. I just haven't confirmed how many lanes yet. Parts required are listed below:

4HP13 - Thermal plate

2x JPRFM - M1.6x2.5 screws ( holds the thermal plate and M.2 drive down )

Thanks for the response, I currently have a PCIe drive installed, but it was configured as SATA.  By that I mean the SATA controller was set as RAID and the drive showed on the SATA controller, not the NVMe controller.

I just wondered why it had been configured that way.

@Saltgrass,

I think that's just the way the controller shows up. The drive should be running on PCIE lanes. You'll be able to see them using HWiNFO64:

I think you'll see 4 lanes but I could be wrong.

I don't like to mess with the original drive but it would be shown as the Samsung drive is.  As you can seem the Samsung is sitting on the NVMe controller where the Toshiba was on the SATA controller.
