    Asus ROG Z690-I Strix Question

    Hey,

    I have a little question. I am looking into doing a Z690-I Strix Build inside the Lian Li A4-H2O but my concern is my M.2 Temps. I was looking to do a 2TB M.2 and a 4TB M.2.

    I also heard that the M.2 Flex and all. I remember in a older z590 build i did for my friend his M.2 on the stacked Heatsink reached almost 80c during gaming and also had some bend in it too.

    Can someone help me with my concerns if possible.

    Thanks

    I'm guessing with good air flow across the stacked heatsink, running two drives you should be fine.

    Thanks for your help.

    What M.2 are you running i saw some online reviews with single sided that the m.2 would bend.

    on my friends old tu150 build with a z590i strix his m.2 temps were 50c idle and got close to 80c during gaming

    I'm running Seagate FireCuda 530,.. no bending with the Z690-I Strix stacked heatsink, if using correct spacers & pads.
