I would like to know the idle temperature of these three Samsung SSDs, is it possible to get to know these data?

PM991A:

980:

980 PRO:

I would like to choose the coolest one when not under heavy load, for my Galaxy Book Pro 360.

The 980 pro and reg. 980 have an idle temp. of 32 to 37°c which isn't bad.

Thanx, good to know. Now, Magician says that my 512 GB PM991a is running at 30° right this moment, and my fan is definitely off. I would expect that as few as 2-7 degrees more from a 980 Pro would not be enough to spread around and have the fan activated, right? I have the 15" i7 version of the Galaxy Book Pro 360 and I love the absolute quiet of this machine when it's not working hard.

What about higher temperatures though? Is a 980 PRO going to cook inside a slim laptop like this? I am no gamer, just some video processing, but Samsung itself says that "PM991a is a first-rate storage solution for slimmer laptops, providing high performance in a tiny package". Should I stick to this model to stuff 1-2 TBs inside my laptop? Does anyone have experience of a Galaxy Book with a 980 PRO SSD inside?

Thanx.
