    Hey Blebleuh, they didn't give an EC file seperately. That being said, the N.1.00 that is in their Zip also only has the Bios file, I'll upload it to my Google Drive as well so people don't have to download a 5.5GB zip. They both have EC 1.33.09 in the names and seem like they're from Sept. The N.1.00 Bios seems to have the Bios in there twice, but I didn't change anything from the folders.

    There is not a seperate EC file in either, so its just the BIOS and I updated it by navigating to the unzipped folder and running the F.bat contained within.

    My GDrive link is here for the folder - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1n92DI2cxv_6LgY1memEtpyANI4EAu24I

    Let me know if you have other questions. Suprisingly, OP support got back to me 10 hours after emailing them last night so that was kinda nice.

    I don't think you can go wrong either way. I would personally just use the smaller drive as the OS drive and install a 2x NVME in the second slot for the rest of the software then call it a day.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Will eagerly wait for your battery swap tutorial btw. Mine's already shipped!

    Just outta curiosity, why not go for a x4? Does the board not support it? The one I linked is only 10 bucks more expensive and seems to be x4

    1st slot is Sata or 4x NVME
    2nd 2x NVME

    I tested a really fast NVME 3200/1800 in the 2x lane and it was quite a bit faster than a direct 2x speed.

    Sorry for my ignorance, don't understand the nvme tecnology all that well. Doesn't it scale down to 2x if used in that slot? or in the scaling do I lose more speed than I would get by using a standard 2x?

    Just trying to buy the most future proof part possible, thats why I'm thinking about buy the one I linked. If the laptop has no problem scaling down the 4x linked and it will run at the same speed as an 2x, I don't mind paying the 10 bucks difference.

    Yes, an NVMe 4x drive should work in a 2x slot at 2x speed.
