    Attach some heatsinks to the chips with thermal adhesive.

    Will be good to see the results, I bet it helps quite a bit

    If it really helps, Corsair should hire me
    I have those heatsinks for 3 more ssd's.

    Btw I haven't peeled of the copper stripe, just the sticker.
    Stripe has it's own sticky tape (for the sticker to be attached), so I could stick the heatsinks even if they haven't got their own adhesive.

    Well, can't say that I'm impressed.
    The difference is 2-4c. Now sitting just under 50.

    Maybe I really need to peel off the copper string, and stick the heatsinks directly to chips?


    UPD: Removing the string wins about 1c, so no big difference.

    The adhesive pads may not have good thermal conductivity. Try some thermal adhesive glue or some other heatsinks. Or cut out a square section in the center of the adhesive pads and apply a small amount of thermal paste, might help?

    Good idea, but in my case the hottest chip has very small surface to try and cut something.
    I think I'll leave everything as it is right now.
    I have achieved some progress, so it's still better, than it was before.

    UPD:
    Guess who can't calm down?
    Even with perfectly attached heatsinks, this....soldering iron can't drop under 46c.
    I know it's not even near 80c, when it'll start to throttle, but I just can't live with this.

    Have found a local seller and ordered this:

    Said made in germany. so hope it'll help for good!


    And to make me a little sad, the samsung 960Pro has arrived to my country at the price of my mp500.


    P.S Is there something I will be needing to reconfigure after I move the ssd from M.2_2 slot to PCIe?

    Do you have any airflow around that area? No airflow = no cooling...
    Even if you have the SSD under cover, you need to have airflow! Also, no point of heatasinks if you don't have - again - airflow...

    When I was looking for a board, I ended up choosing one with uncovered M.2 place. The Samsung 960 was still running in middle 50ies (idle) until I added a fan to blow over it - now it's 26C (ambient 22C) while idle... haven't seen going over 60C under load (although wasn't watching it closely)...
