    M.2 ssd - g20cb heat issues?

    Just wondering/trying to get a read if anyone has had success with installing the M.2 SSD and not having heat issues? So far all posts I've read of people trying to install this drive have ended in thermal concerns.
    Asus G20CB - Core i7 6700, Nvidia GTX980, 16GB Ram, 256GB SK Hynix SSD, 1TB Samsung SSD.

    m.2 SSD limit

    I was going to try the M.2 but also heard people saying they had overheat issues. If you are going to try be aware that the limit on the g20cb M.2 slot is 256 GBs.
    Also I saw they have created these thermal pads for M.2 drives. Wonder if they would solve the heat issue in the case as there is no way of getting a fan on the m.2 slot in the case.

    Dang, I wanted to go 512GB. Is this a limitation found by the user or is this stated somewhere? (just curious)
