I'm currently using a 1TB SSD from Kingston (NV2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD) and just ordered a second one of 2TB.

I'm not using heatsink and from the review I could read, these SSD are not running hot, even without heatsink." rel="nofollow -

My question is for ASRock DeskMini x300 users : do you use heatsink for your M2 SSD's ?

Has anyone observed temp issue with M2 SSD's in the DeskMini, especially with the SSD at the back of the motherboard ?

I use two WD_BLACK SN750 in my X300 build - without heatsinks. The temperatures are Ok for me, around 55C-58C (131F-136F). The one on the back of the MB can reach +60C if pushing the CPU, but nothing that bothers me.

Keeping the SSDs cool might become a problem if there's an upgrade to PCIe gen 4 or gen 5, but with gen 3 its simply not an issue. Even with gen 4 or 5 you have to work them hard to get them hot, and X300s aren't the sort of PCs running high wattage overclocked CPUs and huge hot GPUs for serious gaming that are likely to.
