Samsung NVME/M2 SSDs get hot. It is known. check your temps!

Hi,

atleast GL703 series laptop's have very limited space and no air flow for the NVME ssd slot.
This is the reason they sometimes exceed temperatures over 80 celcius and may cause throttling.
nvme heatsink dropped my temps from 82c -> 70c. (samsung reports operating temperatures for these nvme ssds 0-70celcius.
also if you have cooling stand for your laptop it helps even further.

you can use HWINFO64 sensors tab to check your temps.

This is just one of the many reasons why these laptops tend to throttle.
