    XII Hero SSD Heatsink Height Clearance

    I've been searching for a compatible SSD heatsink for use in the XIII Hero. I can't find any clearance specs for one. This is with the cover on over the SSD in slot M.2_3.

    Is it even advisable to add a heatsink there for a 980Pro? Thanks.

    NOTE: It is the XIII Hero, not XII Hero as title is incorrect.

    980pro are working fine in the XIII Hero (I have 2!), make sure you use the thermal pads that comes with the motherboard and properly reinstall the motherboard heatsinks
