Hello,

I recently installed a SAMSUNG 970 EVO Plus SSD 2TB as a second SSD on my motherboard (X470 GAMING PLUS 2.0).

The SSD was installed with a Thermalright M.2 Heatsink Cooler.

I have not yet started using the SSD and its idle temps are about 38 degrees C.

My other SSD (brand: ADATA) runs at about 24-25 degrees C under moderate use and uses a very simple heatsink that came with the drive.

  1. What temperatures do others get (or what should I expect) when using the 970 EVO Plus?
  2. For those using a heatsink with this SSD, which do you use and is it effective?

Thank you for any help you can give.

Anyone else use a heatsink? If so, what model is it and would you recommend it?

I have 8 nvme drives in  my gaming machine, 4 with external heat  sinks.  I have tried a  few different sinks and my favorite  is the EKWB.  Opinions, mileage, and results may differ.

@ddaniel51 Thank you for that information. 

What is the difference, if any, between the heat-sinked NVMes and the non-heat-sinked ones?

Couldn't tell you as the other 4 are in an Asus Hyper card with a fan and case as a heatsink.

The 8 drives 960's, 970's, and 980's  vary from 29 to 34 c.
