    R6E + Samsung 960 Pro M.2

    Anyone here with an R6E and an Samsung 960 Pro m.2 fitted into the covered m.2 slot? How does it handles the temperature? Can it run with no problem as OS disk?

    I heard some ppl had problems with freezing/crashing windows 10 caused by overheating 960 Pro. I though these m.2 throttle down if they reach a limit?

    Mine runs on average Ambient temp 30°c 960 Pro m.2 runs @ 48°c
    Under full load stress test using Samsung Magition temp maxis out @ 57°c without issues.
