x570 Elite heatsink

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi

I am building my first PC now and I installed my 970 EVO M2 SSD. When I want to reattach the heatsink from my x570 Elite, the heatsink does not touch my m2 SSD. My m2 SSD ist 80mm long and the heatsink is 110mm long. So the heatsink is on the 80mm screw of my m2 SSD.

 

Should I not install the heatsink and left it out?

Or should I install the heatsink with a huge gap between my m2 SSD and my heatsink.

 

I just dont get it ...

It's because you installed the SSD's wrong.

It's board > standoff > SSD > screw.

You have it board > SSD > standoff > screw

 

Take off the screw, take off the standoff, take out the SSD, install the standoff, then SSD, then screw.

 

EDIT:

how to in a picture:

I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Yeah that doens't look good. the 970 is supposed to rest on the standoff, and then you add the screw to keep it in place. it should be level.

p.s. its not ideal, but you could do without the screw on the standoff and 'wedge' it between the heatsink.

The thermal pad will do a fairly good job of keeping the m.2 drive from moving around. don't forget to remove the blue plastic.

 

If you can tho, try to avoid this.

yes i'm aware, but when people reply quickly, they generally miss the edit :(

 

and i don't want them to look like fools for people who respond with help later referring to earlier edits.
