Corsair One Pro GTX 1080 version - NVME upgrade

Recommended Posts

I have  a Corsair One Pro with GTX 1080. I've watched videos on how they upgraded their SSD using M2 Slot. It was accessed from GPU side and removing it. 

Their GPU was previously upgraded so it was no longer OEM. Also from the video they removed the riser card. Mine is built a diff way and still in OEM condition.

I opened mine up and could slide it out a little after removing a screw. There are two screws on the corner and I was able to remove one, but because the other screw is close to this other connector I am not able to turn the screw. I am not sure if this will remove it. 

 

I also read that some people removed the entire motherboard to get to M2 slot which is behind GPU. 

Can someone confirm if I can get to M2 slot from GPU side or do I remove the MOBO from CPU side? I cannot remove a screw, denoted by red, and gave up after a while.

Hey @Upgrademe

It's certainly possible to access the M.2 slot from either the GPU side or Motherboard side of the chassis by removing the relevant components.
Whilst the M.2 slot is attached directly to the rear of the motherboard itself, the main thing to watch out for is saving the screws and plugging everything back in afterwards!

below is an image of where you should find the M.2 from the perspective of the GPU side of the Corsair One Pro (2017)

I hope this addresses your query!

My 1080 GPU seems to have died and I need to replace it.  However, once I remove it from the PCIe cable and move the bracket at the top of the unit, the GPU card seems to be still attached.  That would be in the lower left corner of the picture provided.  It almost seems like it is screwed into the plate just above the bottom drive.

Any advice on how to remove the card would be greatly appreciated.  I need to get this up and running ASAP.  Also, any known sources for replacing the exact version of 1080 GPU card or upgrading to the 1080 ti as previously provided by Corsair?  I would like to continue using the AIO system as provided.

Figured it out.  I had to remove the power jack in the lower right to get to the two screws holding the GPU to the frame.  That piece of metal has three screws that attach it to the GPU.

Still looking for a resource to replace the Corsair 1080 with a Corsair 1080 Ti.  Thanks.
