    You can goto best buy or the like, and they can help you. I had the same issue, I took the plate off of my lower m2 slot, and got a screw from that. They're small screws, and not typical, why these m2 drives dont come with screws is beyond me. It's like damn, I spent 400$ on your product, cant you hook me up with a screw?

    Okay, I managed to get the screws I needed. However, read n' write is only 850 MB. TeamGroup M.2 MP33 is rated at 1.3 GBP/s. Do I need to do any tweaking? I checked the BIOS and it's configured as is. AMD MSI Tomahawk B350 mobo. Thanks!

    I have to say.. major improvement while gaming; ZERO STUTTERS, ZERO CRASHES, ZERO glitches. HDD sucks major ass man. Even SSD. Now I can play Legion Watchdogs on Ultra and DX12. On HDD, I get crashes one so many times. Sigh. Now I am so procreating happy :D.

    Well.. I got the screws in the mail - DIDN'T FIT. I need some help. Thanks. See pix below:

    This is what I am using right now - PCIe adapter for NVMe - but it looks different from the one I actually got:

    OS : Microsoft Windows 11 Pro [10.0.22000.372] (x64)

    =======================================================================

    Result should be 1,800 MBP/s read and 1,500 MBP/s write according to NVMe protocol 1.3 specification.

    LMK!
