M.2 Cooler Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I bought a dirt cheap alum fin heatsink for my m.2 cooler as a proof of concept but it didn’t come with anything to attach it.

 

I guess I goofed a bit here but very little money wasted thankfully as it was just a couple of £ so can still do most of its function I need it for.

 

I want to test to see if it actually cools, so no need for thermal pads for now but I do need to hold it in place.

 

Can I just use normal rubber bands for this?

you know your m.2 has some stickers that are ultra bad meterial for heat transfer, and with nothing between cooler and m.2 , result will only be slightly better

It’s PoC fun stuff so not too bothered, just fun to see it improve a little.

it shouldnt overheat for sure, but i can think of it takes longer to cool off from load to idle
