Laptop NVME foil cover

Aided Onslaught

Go to solution Solved by starry,

The foil is there for EMI, Ive never had a problem with not including it after an upgrade but your mileage may very. If youre concerned about heat you can always get cheap tiny aluminum heatsinks and heatpads online 

Hello everyone, first time posting here.

Small question. I'm about to upgrade my nvme drive on my laptop. The  current one is a Intel 660p 512 and I'm upgrading to a 1tb Sabrent Rocket. My question is the current drive has foil over it. I believe it's for EMI but not sure. Just want to know if I should take it off and put it on the new one or just not use it. 

Also while I'm here. Anyone have any issues with heat with these drives? Just a little worried since I had to repaste this laptop due to heat already. It's an Asus Scar II with the 2070.

Not sure why you wouldn't replace the sata drive?

Okay, I thought so. I've had so many issues with this laptop that I wanted to make sure. Thank you for your reply.

That is planned. I have a 1TB 2.5 SSD in my PS4 Pro. Once I get the PS5 I'll move that drive to my laptop.
