HP Part code X3K08A6

 

Need 4 to secure a HDD. By chance does anyone have any spare I could buy. Buying 48 Seems crazy, esp at the price they are selling them!

Are these just standard HP HDD screws with the grommets for any desktop, or do they only fit some models? I'll have a hunt through what I haven't yet binned.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

No luck here. I thought I may have still have a few, but it seems I've binned the lot! Very few parts of anything left now (chucked a few more bits and pieces out while looking for the drive screws). Quite the clean out!




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I have a set of 4 here.  PM me an address and I'll get them in the post today at no cost (unless you need them urgently).

I'm in the same boat.  I have heaps of the screws for 3.5 inch disks but none for the 2.5 inch/SSD drives.  And they are a ridiculous price to buy.

 

Last SSD I installed I ended up sticking down with Velcro

In my personal machines when retrofitting SSDs, if screw mounting is not quick and easy, I just use 3M Command Strips.  This particularly applies when going from 3.5" spinning disk to 2.5" SSD.

Ahhhh...  the OP has just clarified these screws need threads compatible with 2.5" HDDs, and the ones I have are for a 3.5" HDD which has a different thread.

 

I've never seen these screws used with a 2.5" HDD, but just opened up an HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Mini with a spinning HDD and can see it uses these screws (though in my case the screws on this ex-lease machine are missing).

 

Sorry I couldn't help, @networkn

Problem is, if you are trying to install the SSD in some models of HP desktop cases, these brackets often won't fit as they don't leave enough room to connect the data cable.

 

The only options are the correct screws or Velcro/mounting tape.
