  1. Thanks for all the suggestions lovely people! ? I'm gonna leave it uncooled for the time being and see how it fares with some gaming sessions - my Vega cooks my tiny case so it may add to the problem. I'll put together something from what you suggested @mariushm if things are unstable.
  2. I'm planning to use it as a boot drive. It's gonna sit between 45-68deg, games are gonna be stored on a separate drive. You reackon it'll be alright to run at those temps?
  3. That's not a bad shout - the spacing is a little large for a thermal pad but it may work brilliantly in conjunction with one of these copper plates https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Copper-Sheet-Heatsink-Heat-Sink-NVME-NGFF-M-2-2280-Thermal-Cooling-Fan-Cooler-1x/233415128954?hash=item3658a0377a:g:O7UAAOSwJUBd3Nx8
  4. I have this tiny little NVMe SSD that slots into the back of my tiny little motherboard. It sits in a tiny ITX case (Silverstone SG-13) where the motherboard mounts horizontally on standoffs off of the base of the case. The space between the NVMe drive and the bottom case is real small but I think I need some way to cool the thing as it idles at about 45 deg, 67 deg under load and peaks at 78deg when stress testing. Samsung said 70deg is the max safe temp for the drive. Does anyone have some suggestions for some cooling? I've found these on eBay but i'm dubious of there effectiveness: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Copper-Sheet-Heatsink-Heat-Sink-NVME-NGFF-M-2-2280-Thermal-Cooling-Fan-Cooler-1x/233415128954?hash=item3658a0377a:g:O7UAAOSwJUBd3Nx8 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ssd-Heatsinks-Aluminum-M-2-Cooling-Cooler-Radiator-For-Pcie-Ngff-Nvme-M-2-2280-S/233314337004?epid=14032515354&hash=item36529e40ec:g:qKoAAOSwtYJdVc7V
