Hello,
I recently bought a B550 Torpedo motherboard and it works great so far.
The only problem is that I can't install my second SSD M.2 on it since the standoff is missing.
I looked for it everywhere, in every corner of the box, in the manual but I can't find it.
I only have a little bag with 3 screws in it (I used one for the first SSD) but that's it.
Is there any way to get a spare so I can finally get the second SSD to work?
Thanks in advance.

Hmm, the manual indeed only mentions 3 M.2 screws, and no standoff. And i found an Amazon review where someone complained about the standoff missing as well. Perhaps they planned with a second M.2 heatsink like on the MAG B550 Tomahawk, but then left it out to save costs, and forgot to add an M.2 standoff? I mean, it sounds crazy, but...

Anyway, this is just a user forum, meaning users here try to help other MSI users, but we can't do anything for you in regards to missing parts etc... you need to either contact MSI or maybe your vendor, or try to source such a standoff yourself, sorry.

Their is a good chance it is under you first M.2
I've been thinking about this possibility. But unfortunately, it is not the case. There is only one standoff for the heatsink (attached to it) and one for the SSD.
Both were on the first slot.

I need at least a third one to be able to use the second slot.

Thanks for taking the time to try to help me.

Mine is also missing the stand-off for M.2-2 and yes there is one for M.2-1 and one for the heatsink on M.2-1, but that still does not get me the stand-off for M.2-1.
