Building a new PC on ROG STRIX Z590-I
, I’m worried whether the motherboard’s native M.2 heatsink will be sufficient to cool two SSDs prone to overheat, and if not, then what can be done?
The point is, I’m going to move SSDs (namely, Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB
and Intel 660p 2TB
) from my previous PRIME Z390-P build to Z590-I, and the SSDs were tending to overheat all along. I’ve tried different solutions: Thermal Grizzly coolers
, Sabrent Rocket headsinks
, and ended up with ineo M3
Z590-I provides, however, no room for this kind of gear, so I’m worried the SSDs may overheat, especially when they both are installed into this sandwich:
Could you please suggest how to allow sufficient cooling for the SSDs in this situation? Or maybe I’m worried for nothing, and this magic sandwich will maintain temperature like a charm?
