    I've look on the manual books online on hp and even try looking at video's and no one seems to mention what it is. :(
    Ok I see now. Ya that is I bet an msata port/slot.

    MSATA would make more sense since it arrived before nvme cards and m.2

    It could be for another MXM Module i.e the GPU :) as to my 90% asleep brain the ports at the end of motherboard looks like Sata connections I could be wrong though... woke up at 2 am... so in zombie mode at present LOL.

    Edit:

    Looked up the service manual and it looks like it's the socket for the GPU - HP call it the Graphics Subsystem...

    This what I gathtered when I did a different search about my laptop. And this guy posted to some user about a m2 ssd saying this. No there is no 3rd generation Intel Core machine that can accept an M.2 PCIe mSSD disk. If you open the access panel you will probably see an open mini-PCIe slot which is designed for a WWAN (celular modem) card and it might accept one of the older type mSSD drives. But that is a far cry from an M.2 mSSD PCIe.

    Which makes sense caused I pulled the batteey out of my laptop and I see a slot that say SIM.

    The sim slot uses a different type of Slot and @nate0 is not wrong to say it could be an NVME as after all troubleshooting is done through the process of elimination. It's one of things they teach when you're doing the A+ Cert for IT basically the foundation of general IT repair. Reading through his posts answered the questions I had and so it enabled me to make a somewhat accurate guess.

    As much as most people think that us techies know everything... we don't LOL and we don't have a database stored in our brains so we can't recall everything instantly haha. Occassionally we do need a refresher :).

    If anyone acts like and says they know everything they must live a boring life as knowing the future before it happens means no birthday surprises, no christmas present surprises etc etc. Part of the enjoyment of life is not knowing what tomorrow will bring and balance.

    Well I'll stop before I start going way off on a tangent and end up typing up a novel .

    My point is no one is infalliable, perfection is subjective dependent on xyz context, subtext, circumstances... well you get the drift.

    I use to have an 8460p for work. i7 model. They are business workstations, so my first guess was a wwan slot. Then I wondered if back then they came out with a micro pcie sata card for that, so ya I was just shooting off the hip at that point. Good thing I'm not trying to tell you to cut the green wire or the blue wire eh?

    Call me stupid right now. What exactly does Graphics Subsystem mean? I saw another video of the mainboard of someone tinkering with a 8570p and it looks they had soe type of wlan in the slot i was talking about earlier on the top part.

    P.S. My laptop don't have the Radeon™ HD 7570M just the Intel hd 4000

    ya. Either way m going to get a Wlan chip in this thing figure GPS part be cool so I can easily keep an eye on my laptop. Plus Why not use windows 10 for a navigation system lol. I know sounds silly for me to say for 2019. Though the way i see it. I like to max out computers to there fullest. :)

    Also some Wlan cards also enable you to have Miracast, it has to be supported by the CPU and the Wlan card. Allowing you to use your PC as a Miracast receiver and transmitter - however Windows 10 is abit persnickety about that function lol....

    A Wlan card I know for a fact supports Miracast is the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 8265NGW (2230) which I put in a PC I fixed up for a relative and it uses MHF-4 antenna connections.

    Have a look in the service manual, it will list all compatible parts and search up the parts using the part numbers.

    Any metal appliance or central heating radiator should suffice as long as you're not walking on carpet. I usually clip myself to the PC case as the entire case is metal, leave it plugged in but powered off when working inside the case.

    Also the CPU is being shipped with the IHS (the cpu covering) right?

    Or is the seller going to relid the CPU for you?

    ah ok. And he just providing the cpu no new fan or heatsink. I'll be putting the cpu into my laptop.

    Erm okay, the IHS or "CPU cover" (on the right hand side) is the element that interacts with the heatsink in any cooling mechanism in a laptop or PC. The CPU itself does not interact directly with third party heatsinks.

    You will need to relid the CPU and ask the seller if he is providing the IHS with the CPU.

    I suggest you watch this videos from Gamers Nexus to get you started :) :

    When I took off the heatsink. I didn't see no plate on top of the cpu like you were showing me on these videos. Though if you look at my recent posts. Things looks good. :)

    Interesting, guess to reduce height the OEM removed the IHS.

    Saw the screenshots and things do look good!

    Just be sure to buy an external laptop fan or something lol when doing anything intensive as you most likely will thermal throttle.

    Did you download + install HWiNFO?

    That will give you a better idea on the individual core temps.

    Shouldn't the idle and stress temp screenshots be the other way round?

    Id say very weird. Though on that note right now my cpu at idle is at 55C I presume there no way to get it down to 45C like the duel core was?

    As for the screenshots you right I just turn it around lol. Though got a question :S I recently got a broadband module into my laptop. And I attempted to put my cell phone sim into it with an adapter but.... I didn't relize the adapter I got was only for cell pones not laptops. What makes matters worse is when I try to get it out a 3rd time after missing around with the sim. It out of no where just slip right into the sim slot and im looking in it and I cant see the adapter now or my sim. :S It like went some were in there and not sure what I should do. :( As for the module I can't even get it to work as a gps :\ when I look online and it say rgps or whatever. -.- I assuming it only works when you have broadband?
