M.2 Flex in riser card


Hi all


Just wondering if I should be concerned at the flex of my M.2 NVMe SSD in the riser card of my Crossfire Impact board. See pics attached. My thoughts are that the thermal pads may soften up with heat and so the SSD may straighten out?

That's not correct, you need different thickness of thermal pads over the chips since the NAND and controller are not in the same level plane.
