Set a single float in a FloatArray on a shader

In shader code I have a float array:

float _X[250];

Doing this in a script then works fine:

material.SetFloatArray("_X", x);

However, for each update I only want to change a single value of the array.
I tried doing this:

material.SetFloat("_X[" + i.ToString() + "]", x*);*

but that naturally didn’t work.
Is there any work around? It seems silly to have to transfer a full array every frame if only one value changes, but I can’t see any other way at the moment.
Thank you.

For anyone else looking for an answer to this:
