I got invited to beta test the internal SSD slot for the PS5 console. I am going to get the Samsung 980 pro for this. Playstation is suggesting to use a heat sink with which ever SSD i choose. But Since the 980 pro comes with nickel coating to help manage the controllers heat level, and a heat spreader label to deliver effective thermal control of the NAND chip. Is it necessary to add a heat sink as well? and if so, which heat sink should I get for the 980 pro? Any help will be greatly appreciated

I don't suppose theres any way to monitor the temps on a ps5..

My 2tb 980 pro never really gets warmer than 56c, but there is a lot of airflow in my case..
