Solved Heat Sink for Samsung 960 PRO M.2 NVMe SSD 512GB?

April 19, 2018 at 16:09:43
Specs: Windows 10, 16GB
I heard that the Samsung Drive runs very hot sometimes and was wondering what would be a good heat sink to get for an SSD? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. I also heard that the SSD already has a heat sink strip along side it...Is that true?

I got one similar for my WD M2 SSD and it works well.

I was told because of the size of my laptop to try and use a thermal pad instead of a heat sink.

✔ Best Answer
Information.... You did not mention it was a laptop before.
There is a version there that is 2mm think instead of the 4mm one I linked to if you look for it.

You will have to determine how much height you have clearance before you decide. There might also be a thinner flat aluminum plate if that is all the clearance you have. Also note carefully if it can overhang at all or if it needs to be exact to the edges of the chips.

I just got some news about the Samsung 960 PRO M2 NVMe SSD...It doesn't need an heat sink as far as I understand it. I appreciated all your help in this matter. You 'll have been very helpful in trying to help me.
