    My idling is normally around 30-32 and max 35 on load. I am using 370-e the Asus stock heatsink is cool and i believe many are using samsung nvme. Is that fact that more write speed the more the heat generated . I hope its not the same case with my ADATA still read and write is good 2.5gig read avg 2.1 and 1.1gig write and it averges 800-1gig . SO some basic issues with type of nvme we use. Try to have a 40mm fan which can be mounted onto the bottom of the board per including fan holder.

    I for one found the best solution, bought an EK M2 black passive heat spreader and placed a noctua 40mm fan on it, I took off the label from the SSD top chips and now in stress benchmarks on a 960 I have 62-64 max temps, load/games operation does NOT go over 57, this is what I recommend at this point in regards to this topic.
    This is good advice. A couple questions:

    1- how did you attach the fan to the EK heat spreader?
    2- did you put the fan in push (air toward the EK) or pull (air away from the EK)?
    3- how quiet/loud is that specific Noctua fan?

    With your X hero you got a small 40/50mm fan bracket. Get a quiet fan and mount it above your bottom M.2 slot
    With the shield in the top slot, a Samsung EVO 960 nvme always throttled, reaching 60+ deg. Celsius. Thus, lower speeds.
    Without the shield and the bracket+40mm fan, the drive sits happy between 27-30 normal use. On a large copy, it might go to 34-35 Celsius.Attachment 69668

    You need to learn something about airflow. Nothing wrong with the heat shield on the m.2 device on top. Why in earth do you think engineers are more stupid than you? My temps on my M.2 device with the heat shield on is around 40- 46 degrees....50 on heavy duty.
    So it's not stupid at all- You just need som proper airfflow - simple as that.

    Where can I buy another Asus heat shield and fan bracket?

    I'm already using the fan bracket to keep my VRM and mosfets cool.

    My 950 PRO was idling at ~46C and maxing out at 65C under heavy stress test. I had been using the heatsink that came with the ASUS Maximus X Hero motherboard with the SSD installed in the upper slot just below the CPU.

    I just installed the Advancing Gene NVMe M.2 SSD Cooler Heatsinks with 20mm Fan
    https://amzn.to/2J0RS0G

    My idle temps are now 42C and maxing out at 56C. So that's a pretty good improvement (keep in mind, I already had a heatsink on it, so this is an improvement over and above the existing Asus heatsink, so that's a 9C improvement, not bad, coming from no heatsink, I'm sure the improvement would be way more dramatic).

    The tiny fan on the heatsink runs at 5000-8000 RPM, I control the speed using the Asus Fanxpert and normally idle at 5500 RPM (60% duty) and it is completely quiet. I can hear a slight hum at higher RPM, but that rarely happens. The downside is there is no way to tie the Fanxpert control to the SSD temp, you have to use CPU temp as the trigger, I wish we could select the SSD temp as the trigger for increasing fan speed.

    Note that I run my case fans at a very low 700-800 RPM to keep the noise down. I'm sure if I bumped up the airflow in the case, the temps would be even better. But for me, this is a good balance of noise vs temps.

    I ended up buying this guy here. The only things I didn't like were that I had to drill mounting holes for my fan, I had to trim a little off one tab and I wish that it was a little taller.

    It blocks w_flow/pump without modification. Used it for the fan.

    M.2 Top Fan

    You can move the drive after OS is installed without any issues so testing yourself is always the best option
    Can you take a picture of how you set up a 40mm on the top of your video card for the m.2 heatsink. I am trying to lower my temps, with just the m.2 heatsink I am seeing a toasty temps of 43-50 which is concerning to me. I want to see how you set yours up since I have a extra 40mm fan that I can use. I bought the 3D printed fan holder and put my second M.2 on the bottom slot and it sits at 25 idles and 38 under load. So I still have the asus fan bracket they provided but it doesn't look like it would fit between the gpu and cpu. So I really want to see how you did it and possibly copy it

    Thanks!

    I have my M.2 in the bottom as the GPU can get very hot, also have plenty more airflow there
