My unit shipped with a mSATA drive, but had the M.2 slot free. So I *stole* the black screw from the front, near the DisplayPorts and it works perfectly for holding the M.2 drive I added!7/9/18: confirmed the screws to hold down the mSATA and mini-PCI are indeed M1.6 threads and can take at least a 4mm long screw. however, most M1.6 threaded screws do not have a large enough head to hold down a standard mSATA SSD card so you will need to add a washer. I found some black nylon M2 washers that did the job. i also found screws that would work out of the box, but they were very expensive ($50 for box of 100) - if you insist, search for "M1.6 wafer head screws".

Currently I have version 2.4.4-p1 installed on an HP EliteDesk 600 G1 working perfectly. I also had the pfsense on an HP Thin Client T610 Plus and right now I am waiting for the arrival of the HP Thin Client T620 Plus.Also, when you are getting into that price range, you might be better off getting a SFF Dell 7020 / 9020 or HP Elitedesk 600 / 800 G1 with an I5( for AES-NI) $150 range. Granted more power draw and bigger in size but gives you lot more flexibility and bang for the buck. .. my 2¢
I had planned to install an Intel I350-T4 PCI-Express PCI-E Gigabit RJ45 Four ports. When I install it I will check the consumption.I've T620 for pfSense also but with slightly older Intel Pro/1000 PT Quad NIC and my power draw was about 20W.
My comment above was regarding T730 and it's pricing at that time was over $200. It might have come down by now.
Any luck with the 16GB DIMMs? Also, were you able to get the downgrade on the BIOS done? If not, I'll ping my HP guy so he can walk me through the process.
