Hi i want to upgrade my laptop (Asus fx505dy-bq002t) with an ssd but im not sure which type i should get. Im a noob with this type of stuff so any help would be greatly appreciated. The laptop has hard drive which is 5400 rpm and is very slow. I want to know what types of ssds does this laptop support.

 

Also will the following ssd work?

Thanks

That SSD should work fine. Don't worry about soldering, it's nothing to concern yourself with as your laptop has slots

the m.2 should work, but i think some laptops simply have a soldered ssd, youll have to open it up and check

stuff is cool. stuff that has fancy lighting is cooler. stuff that has fancy lighting and works is the coolest.

 

i game so i know a bit abt gaming tech, not much abt professional tech.

 

writing this as i finish a 3 hour D2 sesh so excuse anything wrong.

soldering is when you melt metal onto a mobo, acts like glue but steel, and unless you have a soldering iron you wont be able to pry it off.

Also important to note: even if you did have a soldering iron, you couldn't just pry it off, get a new one, and solder it back on. The chips are often proprietary from Samsung or SKHynix, and they're usually spread out, along with their storage controller.

 

For all intents and purposes, 'soldered' in this context means 'not user upgradeable'.

My System: 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT • Noctua NH-D15 • MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk • 2x8GB G.skill Trident Z Neo 3600MHz CL16 • MSI VENTUS 3X GeForce RTX 3070 OC •  Samsung 970 Evo 1TB • Samsung 860 Evo 1TB • Cosair iCUE 465X RGB • Corsair RMx 750W (White) • ASUS VG27AQ • Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum • Logitech G502 Hero

 

Got any questions about my system or peripherals? Feel free to tag me (@bellabichon) and I'll be happy to give you my two cents. 

 

PSA: Posting a PCPartPicker list with no explanation isn't helpful for first-time builders :)

Just don't expect miracles. Your data will still be on the HDD and game load times won't change
