How close is the drive to other components?

Also NAND is pretty heat tolerant and has worse endurance when cold. I wouldn't even be concerned unless the *controller temperature* was exceeding 70c.

The Nvme idles at around 55Ã‚Â° Celsius and if the fans are running for several minutes the temps drop to around 40.

You're good. Like I mentioned before my 750 idles at 35C in a well ventilated case so 40C inside a laptop isn't unusual. Operating temps for the SN770 are between 0C and 85C: https://www.storagereview.com/review/wd-black-sn770-ssd-review
But as Xeromist stated, keep an eye on temps. Wouldn't want to push the rive beyond 70C. I always compare pushing components to the limit unnecessarily to pushing my wife to the limit unnecessarily. At some point the heat makes her volcano erupt and then BAM...marriage temporarily on hold until I repair the emotional component with flowers.
