I bought this used ASUS ROG G751 Series G751JT-CH71. I am trying to upgrade it to 500GB SSD for setting up VMWare for lab purposes.

So far, I only found this one.
SAMSUNG SM951 512GB (NVMe) PCI EXPRESS


Do we have any other models in Samsung or other manufacturers who make the 512GB SSD card comaptible with ASUS ROG G751 Series G751JT-CH71? Please send me options.


Also I need to find a bracket to hold the PCIe card. I saw some 3d printed plastic bracket or I should buy a caddy? Please help.

Welcome to the ROG forums.

The G751 models dont support NVMe technology, The G752 series are the first.
That same drive comes in an AHCI version that is supported and gets very good speeds, not too far behind the NVMe at this point. Model is MZHPV512HDGL-00000. You have to be careful though as the only thing that changes is the third letter in the part number. MZHP=AHCI and MZVP=NVMe

Thats entirely up to you. The Caddy is OEM and will dissipate heat so long as you use the heatsink tape as shown so it conducts from the chips on the SSD. The bracket is 3D printed and may work. I think the intention with that was to allow for people to get to the SATAIII drive bay that is on the same side as the M2 or to add ramsinks instead. ASUS played a cruel joke on this one. The other open side is SATAII and half the speed. Most have used a short cable to get from one side to the other or simply removed the housing on the 2.5 inch SATAIII SSDS and taped it in place.

Justin,

I need a major help. I opened the back of my laptop and was looking for a M2 slot and I do not find any male pin assembly. I have attache the pictures. I got this from EBAY and I amm really messed up. I have only 2 SATA and the M2 does not look right. Please advise if the guy who sold me the unit did yank it? It looks very strange
