Intel 905P U.2 Active Cooling?

Optane drives kick off some serious heat. 

 

They also don't provide a clear/obvious benefit for boot drive use on a normal system. Is there a reason you don't want to just use a Samsung 970 Pro?

I've got a 905p U.2 in an isolated storage compartment (Alienware Area 51 Case). Intel recommends "Airflow across the drive to provide cooling, such as a front fan and rear fan", but do you think it's really necessary in an isolated compartment? I mean do these things need cooling even without any extra heat sources?

 

I found this: "the upper operating temperature range has been expanded from 70c to 85c"
