Installing the SSD
⚠️ Warning: Monument 2 supports M2 2280 form factor SATA drives. NVMe and PCIe drives are not compatible with Monument 2. Here's the list of some of the compatible SSD drives.
Disconnect all connections from your Monument 2.
ℹ Let the unit cool down for 5 to 10 minutes before you touch the internal components, which may be hot.
⚠️ Notice that the SSD module is keyed (notched) and will only fit one way. Do not force plugging in an incompatible SSD or in the wrong orientation. This will damage the plastic notch separating the key pins and powering the unit in this condition will damage the main board.
If you notice any unusual behavior or problems after installing your new SSD, please contact our support team.
