    m.2 temperature on rog strix x570e gaming

    Hello,

    I have 2 x 1TB Samsung Evo m.2 installed on Asus rog strix x570e gaming.
    Samsung magician is telling me that the m.2 are too hot, temperature varying from 50-60C, but never above 62C.
    Is that considered too hot? if it is, is there any after market cooler I can get for them?
    Also, strange is that the one that's sitting right below GPU is running cooler than the second slot.
    Motherboard itself rarely runs hotter than 50C.

    Thanks for reply!
    Alright I guess up to 70C is ok.
    I think I have to remove the cover (I forget what its called but it covers the chipset fan area and the m.2 slots) if I'd like to use that tho right?

    You remove the *sticker covering the m2 drive chips (on the top only normally) and place the EK m2 cover on, should have thermal contact pad as the interface material between chipset and heatsink.

    There are cheaper versions on eBay and ones with fans or RGB around from different manufacturers. If your motherboard comes with one use that.


    * I live in Australia, and we have strong consumer laws, the void if removed, warranty crap on stickers don't hold up here as reasonable excuse to void warranty YMMV. If in doubt take photos of the sticker before removal and after and then the M2 with heatsink interface on with dates stamps. And you have future warranty unless the manufacturer is terrible. I have found Samsung are quite good for warranty.

    Hope you find this of help.

    Gotcha! I'll watch the temperature and see it ever exceeds 70C. Hopefully it stays within.

    Thanks!
