    I have the ASUS X99-Deluxe/U3.1 that comes with the Hyper M.2 x4 add in card.
    While the card has the stand off or whatever it is called, I have no idea where the screw is (to secure the SSD).
    Any suggestions?

    plenty of laptop screws work.

    Any of the m.2 devices i've received, if it comes with a screw in a seperate package... i immediately remove it, and screw it into the standoff, because everyone seems to lose them.

    The correct screw size is 2.0 x 3mm (CM2x3-3.3)

    Thank you.
    Funny story, the stand off also had in it the screw.
    It looked weird at first and I thought why is the stand off with a screw shape on it instead of ...not.
    I took a photo and I just couldn't see it.
    All is well that end well, or something.
