"m2 ssd heatsink"
Tue May-10-22 07:34 PM by lenjack

          

I came across a Youtube video, which recommended the use of heatsinking an m2 ssd. I had heard previously, that this was not necessary. As an experiment, I placed a finger on mine, and it was barely warm. Then I ran CrystalDisk Mark, and after a few minutes, the ssd got way to hot to touch, for more than a few seconds.

Using HarwareInfo 64, the ssd was 38 degrees at idle, and went to 67 during my test. I purchased an ssd heatsink, IVYNSRY, model HT-001, and retested, with the following results. Idle 34 degrees, maximum 42, a 25 degree difference maximum.

As other websites have reported, there was NO difference in performance, but there is a likely difference in long term longevity, of the ssd.

I have zero $, or any other interest, in this company, and from a little more searching, it appears likely, that there are numerous other makers of such a device, that will give comparable results.

I would heartily recommend such a device.

I should add to my original post, my mobo, does not have as ssd heatsink. There was one that came with my ssd -Adata-which was in place for my original test.

Thanks for sharing the info!

Can you clarify a little? Your Adata SSD came with a heatsink and you did your initial test with that heatsink. Then you got a different heatsink and repeated the test. Is that correct? Can you tell us of any differences in the 2 heatsinks or their thermal pads?

Behind every good computer... is a jumble of wires 'n stuff.

Sure. My Adata has the heatsink it came with, firmly attached. I was going to remove it prior to testing, but it was attached so firmly, that I feared damaging it, if I persisted, so I left it in place, and attached the new heatsink to it, with the Adata heatsink still attached. My before and after results, are with the Adata heatsink attached.

However...I just found some info, that may partially counter this. It seems that nand chips, may function better a higher temps. and only the ssd controller chip, benefits from cooling. I think I'll leave the heatsink in place.
