    thanks for sharing this important tip. What did you do with the copper sticker that I presume is stuck over the chips? that was mentioned in your op? Did you have to remove it to expose the variation in the height of the chips or is this variation in height obvious even with the sticker left in place?

    WHAT? Please provide some facts......what you just said is rubbish. I have a 970 EVO without heatsink. Temps are idle: 40-45 degrees. Load: 55-60 degrees. So where do you get your info from?

    I left the copper sticker in place, I did not remove it. The slight variation in height of the two sets of chips is visible even with the copper sticker on, so I didn't see any need to remove it.

    My own tests, and a friend of mine has one too and same results.
    I belief there is also one review that tells the truth. and it's also well know on some other forums it gets real hot. its basically common knowledge they get real hot.

    And the temps you are speaking about must also be with a heatsink and only a short stress test or you are talking crap just 2 runs on even that samsung benchmark test with a 970 evo nvme ssd with no heatsink on it make it go 100 degs on mem controller.

    why you think they even make nvme heatsinks because they run so cold ?

    Hi there,

    I was having the same problem with my SSD 960 EVO. Even having thermal throttling issues when benchmarking. So I did a little mod to it, placing a heatsink and a little fan:

    Now temps are way better, being far from the thermal throttling limit temp:

    If you have a Maximus X Hero, it should come with a fan optional adapter for the VRM. You can use it to cool down the included SSD heatsink.
