Will Heat from the GPU be an issue with M.2 SSD?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I recently purchased some parts for my ryzen5 build, and right after buying said parts I realized something frightening....

The motherboard's M.2 slot sits right below the PCIe Slot. The motherboard is an MSI B450m Pro VDH Plus  and I bought the beefy 3 slot Gtx 1660 XC from EVGA. 

My concern is: Will the ssd be affected by the heat from the GPU? 

What do you guys recommend? Should I not use an M.2 SSD? I'm I overthinking this? 

Please HELP! :c

Unless you're really hammering the SSD with something to do to the point where the controller thermal throttles, it'll be fine.

My plan is to use the ssd as the system drive and to put my online games in there which I'll be playing quite often, would that be counted as hammering? :c

What heat? it's a 1660, if anything it's gonna cool it down

The SSD will just be cooled down. PCPer noticed a 20°C decrease, iirc with a 950 Pro right under an EVGA 970.

I dunno, This is my first build upgrading from a stone-age system, but knowing that is relieving. 

Thanks!
