and damn if I haven't lost my mojo...I'm so clumsy!

and the heatsink on the CPU M.2 slot really irks me. it's got a nut on the screw that can't be removed and the SSD has a product label that the heatsinks adhesive would mess up (I think).

anyone know if the lil 2.5" drive screws would fit as a replacement?

edit - oh yeah...build specs:

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
Noctua NH-U12s and whatever thermal grease it came with
Gb B550M Aorus Pro-P
4x 8GB Corsair LPX DDR4 3000mhz RAM
2x Kingston A2000 1TB M.2 SSD
Gb GTX 970 as fill in
EVGA SuperNova 650w G3
Define Mini C

yeup. I'm upgrading from a Lenovo Tiny M900x with an i7-6700, 16GB RAM, 480GB M.2 SATA SSD + 2TB 2.5: HDD.

will still be using that system, but looking forward to moar power!

and for GPU, just waiting on the RTX 3050 Ti or RX 6500 XT.

just have to do the part I hate the most...all the fiddly header connectors. <_<
