Need the "white plastic connector" to motherboard header for hdd, a connector for the flat ribbon cable in the boxnuc8i3cysm. The cable has a label with the following:  "Crimson SATA Cable 1423-00k-5000 mge 180316".  Internet searching is not returning info.

Picture of white plastic connector attached.

Hi @wouldchuk 

1. This white plastic peace is a part of the Ribbon Cable Receptacle and I'm affraying that can't be bought separately.  In order to disconnecting the SATA cable, this part should be only slightly lifted, rather than pulled out from the socket.

2. Any way, if you will find one, please send post where and I'll order too.

Hi Leon, thanks for the info.  Since I was looking at a "part" that didn't "exist" I had to get creative.  Used a thin rigid piece of  plastic, cut to the inside width of the header... cha-ching!  It worked. holds the ribbon cable in place and just stands there, about 1.5" high.  Issue solved.

Cheers!
