    Question Do we need to replace the thermal pad for m.2 drives?

    Hi all,

    I need some advice.

    My nmve m.2 drive (Corsair MP510 480GB) needs replacing due to a fault.

    I have it installed in my ROG CROSSHAIR VII HERO m.2_1 (bottom slot) with the heatsink; which also included a thermal pad.

    Do I need to replace this thermal pad when replacing my m.2 drive? If so, can you recommend me one?

    Thanks in advance.
