    Question M.2 SSD temperature

    Hello Everyone.

    On IX formula MOBO there is a cover, that covers the M.2_1 slot.
    AIDA64 shows that my ssd is 65 degree C in idle.

    I'm afraid, that it's going to be too hot when i'll start playing.

    I'm thinking about moving the ssd to M.2_2 port, that is at the bottom of the MOBO.
    It's not covered by anything, and is located perpendicularly to the MOBO.
    Or maybe just remove the cover from M.2_1 slot?
    Can you please share your thoughts about this?

    Also, will there be any difference in performance between M.2_1 and M.2_2?
    Or maybe some other problems?
