    most of the M.2 drives are of a different size. You can buy PCIe "carriers" for them which are a third of that size, but yes they are prone to overheating.

    Also depends on where you put it too

    My M.2 is above my GPU for obvious reasons and it still gets up there in Temps 42c while my 840EVO goes like 30c

    Corsair link has always been buggy as hell, that's been my experience with it.
    I only use it to change the color of the pump logo, but it does show the water temp and and the pump speed, so there is that.

    And it also shows the hard drive and gpu temps, must be magic

    Yea, it shows some decent info, but it is buggy as it can be. I quit using it years ago. I don't even mess with it.

    I simply use it as a nag notifier as I actually had the pump on my H100i go bad, leaving me with an extremely hot CPU. At that time, like you, I wasn't running CL. Now since I use it as a nag notifier, I also use it to control the pump color and fan/pump speed. As a reliable temp reader... AIDA64

    Yep, exactly. I use CL to control pump (quiet/performance), pump color and rad fans. As for case fans it's useless. I just take a look at all those fans once in awhile to see if the RPMs for the case and CPU fans are where I want them to be, which they always are.

    Old Mike: I doubt there is anything wrong with your Asus bios. When I look at my bios it correctly shows 4 fans (3 case and the CPU). It also shows 3 extension fans (2 rad fans and the power supply fan). For me, bios doesn't control extension fans and it states right in the bios I would need an add in card to do that. When I used AI Suite 3, it showed all 7 fans correctly and labelled those 3 extension fans. So Asus' software can at least identify the fans correctly. Why can't CL?

    I just saw a guy on the Corsair forum report that with the latest CL version he now has two more phantom fans and is up to a total of 10 showing on CL. This can to taken as very sad or concerning. Given what I think of Corsair's software engineers at this point, I just take it as hilarious, especially given it's only affecting readings.

    I'll have to check in my bios again, as it does show all my fans, but I don't think it shows the power supply fan, don't remember seeing that one....

    Yes, it's showing as the third extension fan for me under monitoring. Not that I care much. It's the only fan I don't see RPM readings on or control through either the bios or CL. When I did this build I remember taking a close look at it. With the power turned on, it simply runs at its happy default RPM/voltage, whatever that is.
