Anyone have ANY idea what SIZE that M.2 SCREW IS????????

Notebooks, do NOT come with a SCREW.......

Thoughts?
The correct size screw is 2.0 x 3.0mm.

You can buy a bag of 50 of them for 70 cents with free shipping from aliexpress:

Make sure you choose M2(50PCS) x 3MM.

M.2 Mount Screw size is a metric M2 - 2.5mm length

I have the exact same problem. I solved it. The screw size is an M2. That is a metric M2. The length can vary but I think it is close to 2.5mm. The post that it goes into is the problem. If you have a post then an M2 screw should work. You can probably get one at an ACE Hardware Store. You won't find it at a Home Depot or Lowes. They don't carry screws that small. If you can't find one locally or need the post / then go on to Amazon and search for "m.2 screw kit". If you get it locally make sure you have or get a jewelers Phillips head screwdriver as well.

m2 screw size

NVMe drives from crucial have a semi-circular notch. The notch opening diameter is 3mm, the head size of the screw cannot be too big (or it will short nearby circuitry). Measurements indicated a 4mm head diameter would secure the drive. I haven't found a good supplier yet of a flathead screw with no countersink (mcmaster-Carr only had 90 degree countersink heads), and i think the length needs to be at least 3mm but might work up to 5mm.

Good luck out there.

I just bought these on Amazon.
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1


They don't fit my Gigabyte Aorus B360 board. The threads for the standoffs are too small and don't engage the motherboard threaded holes. Anyone know of standoffs and screws that work for the Aorus sized holes?

Well in fact I did get one too recently and of course my mobo's M.2 screw is in a box of the mobo which is right now under the mobo = I ain't gonna move the whole thing to get into the box = I took a regular SSD screw that came with my case.
I did have an extra M.2 screw from M.2 heatsink but that screw is very small diamater and would probably fit in the mobo M.2 holes but not into the M.2 standoff that came with the mobo. The SSD screw fits perfect.

Oh great, you necroed this. Fantastic. Who the hell goes digging out these old threads to make them top page.

If all else fails silicone or hotglue it in place

I guess on a tight budget you can even use the mobo box as the case
