    Hi all,

    I have an MSI GE65 RAIDER 9SF laptop
    Amazing laptop with 1 x sata 3 + 2 x pcie 3.0 connections, but all that's letting it down in my opinion is the slow sd card reader. Of course i can use a bulky external sd card device which i have, but i don't want to :)

    The laptops internal sd card reader is slow and MSI have confirmed its a usb 2.0 interface. I'm a newbie, but I have some knowledge of how things might work.

    So basically.........2 x usb 3.2 gen 1 ports and an sd card reader which is usb 2.0.......This is all on a small seperate circuit board. Please see attached images.

    Is it possible to replace only the sd card reader part with a higher rated part and have this soldered onto the exsisting seperate board.......for e.g uhs-II sd card reader with faster speeds.

    I'm definitely not going to attempt to mod my current board but maybe purchase a spare part and tinker if its even possible ?

    kind regards
