How have you come to the conclusion that the SSD overheating is the culprit?

How do you know the ssd was overheated?

It can be other than that. If installed properly, i don't see why it can overheat on boot?

Did you remove the protective layer from the heatsink thermal pad? If you didn't remove it it will insulate your SSD, not cool it.

That doesn't answer why you know it's the SSD that's overheating, just a clue that it might be something overheating. Just because it's the last thing you added, still makes it an assumption.

 

Have you actually checked how hot it gets when it freezes?

Yep touch the heatsink for a sec and it pretty much very hot

I would try it in a different m.2 slot and see if that makes a difference.

CrystalDiskInfo should show the temperature.

I have the same SSD, without cooling it went 50+ celsius under load, that's still lower than Samsung EVO 970 Plus was...


... but I'm no expert
