Auto shutdown issue of Z240 SFF workstation when Intel 750 PCIe SSD installed.

New Contributor

Hi all,

I got a Z240 SFF workstation with a 512G HP Z Turbo Drive G2 intalled on M.2 slot as a boot drive. I recently add a 1.2T Intel 750 PCIe SSD on PCIe slot 4 for additional storage. However after the Intel 750 SSD was intalled, the computer began to shutdown automaticly after couple of minutes running. The issue will be fixed after remove the Intel 750 SSD. The system is running 64bit Win10, with Samsung NVMe Driver. The Intel 750 SSD can also be read and write when installed and Intel Data Center Tool shows that the SSD is healthy. I think the auto shutdown issue is related to overheating on 750 SSD. I am wondering if the motherboard of Z240 SFF is compatible with Intel 750 SSD. Does anyone have same or similar issue with Intel 750?

Could you please inform us how is the Intel® SSD 750 Series installed? (Bootable or storage).

Intel recommends to use Intel® NVMe* for this drive: Download Intel® SSD Data Center Family for NVMe Drivers

Please, be aware that not all chipsets have been tested with this drive so there is chance that your system is not compatible with this SSD.

Hi Aleki,

It was installed as a storage drive. Actually the Intel NVMe Driver was installed also.
