Hi. I have a question... I want to know if my laptop Asus ROG GL552JX (with M.2 (2280) SSD slot SATA3 interface) will support SSD Kingston HyperX Predator 240GB PCIe Gen2 x4 (M.2)? I bought this SSD yesterday (is not come yet..i waiting for him), and i think i spend alot of money for nothing. :D Thank you!

Yes it will but i should warn you kingston has a lot of recalls on the predators. My office alone had to return 5 out of 15 and at newegg they are taking a %17 return rate on them. Not to mention they use toshibas a19 nand which is problematic. The predators are slower then both the samsung SM951 and even the older XP941 which are cheaper so im not sure why anyone would purchase it. I highly recommend you choose the SM951 in ahci. Its available on newegg or amazon and a few other smaller retailers.

I can't find the screw to keep the m.2 held down, in the laptop. Spent $100 on a Samsung EVO 850. Can someone tell me how they installed their SSD?

If you bought a m.2 850 evo and you needed a pcie you purchased the wrong card. The m.2 850 evo is a sata and will not work in a m.2 pcie. Usually they are held with 2.5x5 or 2.5x3 screws.
