RE: Dell M.2 / NVME Specifications And Upgrade Requirements For Latitude, XPS, Precision Mobile and Optiplex

@Cs42,

I was wrong here. I heard back from Dell engineering and they advised of the below:

-The 2242 cache drive will be installed into the WWAN slot.

-You'll need 1 screw for the 2242 card: 4270E 2X3

-Dell only supports the card as a cache card. No support for it being bootable.

I'm working to get installation and set-up instructions and will get back when I can.

Hi a

I wanna put a Samsung NVME 960 M.2 in my 5480 and I cannot get the parts for that in Canada. Dell support tells me those parts are for internal use only and cannot be sold.

1x 2FFR0 end bracket

1x X3DN4 -Thermal plate

1x 4270E - End screw

Any way to get them or a workaround?

Justin,

I am stuck on an issue I am trying to resolve for my company and you seem to be the only guy on the net that has any clue what is going on. But I need a little more granulatiry with my specific issue.

We just got in x13 5580's and I tried to get answers from Dell tech 1 chat support, to no avail. What we are trying to do is spec out 512GB NVMe SSD's as the only drive (CSmiley Happy. It looks like we can but need three specific parts:

1x 2FFR0 end bracket

1x X3DN4 -Thermal plate

1x 4270E - End screw

I cannot locate a vendor for these parts. How can I obtain them?

Hello.

I have a Latitude E5270 with sata SSD

I'd like to add a new m.2 SSD in the WWAN slot.

Is it possible?

Thanks!

Greetings Raphaeljr,

Dell only supports M.2 2280 and 2.5 inch drives with the E5270. I have no documentation that would say for sure that a drive will work in the WWAN slot. It's likely the 2242 size for the WWAN slot. You'd have to try it at your own risk to find out for sure.
