    The WD Black was delivered today and is now the C drive and after an hour it is only at 31C. Seems I won't be needing any extra heatsink or cooling.

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    Those are pretty much normal for NVME drives.
    Yes general opinion is that it seems these drives just run hotter.

    [That said, if at all possible always install the drive in the slot furthest away for the GPU.
    I did install it in the slot with the heatsink that happens to be furthest away from the GPU, although there's not much difference in space maybe an inch.

    Look at reviews of the p5 and if they indicate major throttle issues then put a heatsink.
    Maybe by putting on a heatsink you will blow up the 5 year warranty if you remove the sticker on the ssd.

    This is from my work Dell Precision laptop. It's running an Intel Xeon E-2176M at 2.70Ghz base clocks, with 32GB of RAM.

    Here is my NVMe drive with a large 40GB file copy understay

    These modern m.2 drives are made to be put straight on a heatsink the sticker will make no difference whatsoever to the heat dissapation ability of a tight fitted heatsink.

    Also this goes to anybody when you read reviews on Shopping sites about m.2's, you read about people who put a Pci 4.0 m.2 ssd into their laptop but did not put a heatsink on it & it blew it up within a month !

    That is something to think about before deciding weather you need a heatsink on modern m.2 drives.

    I think you can't believe everything that's posted online.

    I also think some things look more worrisome than need be. An NVMe drive running at 42 degrees Celsius is a non worry.

    I guess you would need a PCi 4.0 system running to know what it needs, since most of you are PCi 3.0 you would not know how much heat they produce.

    There's faulty logic going here in thinking no one realizes how hot a "PCi 4.0 system" may get or that the manufacturer of the drive didn't account for the heat they might put out.

    There's also the faulty logic of thinking a PCI 3.0 system could run a PCI 4.0 NVME drive at 4.0 speeds.

    Again, worrying about something that there's no need to worry about. Or relying on some internet FUD as the gospel of all things.

    While I don't have 4.0 NVME drives in my system I do have 2 NVME drives in my system and not a ton of fans or customized heatsinks on either of the drives. Result still a no drive issues or degradation
