    After install you new plate it could be a good place with a little help of Velcro to install the ssd's.

    It would look good and be easy to get to, Plus the front fans would be blowing on them. I know ssd's do really get hot but it can't hurt.

    I also block all my empty slots in the back of the case. Air only comes in through fans that have filters and out through the radiator fans. And yes I do have positive case pressure, using a smoke test.

    The best idea I have seen in this thread is that of smoke testing the box. Since it is a dual chamber design ideally the chamber that houses the PSU, cables, etc. should have a low velocity pass-thru design that does not leak into the other side. The motherboard side should follow this same model. If air velocity is higher on one side than the other you will get leaks between sides. That will result in turbulence which decreases effectiveness.

    The bottom fan holes in the case may work better allowing air into the case for this same reason. As air moves across the chamber from the front fans it will draw air from the bottom fan holes. This can help in moving air in a consistent pattern to the exhaust fans where ever they are located. If those are blocked you could introduce turbulence due to a swirl effect at the bottom back of the case, again, reducing effectiveness.

    A smoke test is the best way to determine the optimal setup. If you are really that concerned about it plunk down your dollars for a tester. Here's a link to one of the best on the market.

    I went ahead and ordered a couple of more of these same 140mm RGB fans to put at the bottom of the case for strong positive air pressure, and more lights.

    I'd look into getting a M.2 heatsink for that SSD, the thickest you can fit into the space you have.

    This was the reason I skipped NVME SSD's this time around since they're known to have heat issues from all brands, with my current ITX build my M.2 SSD is on the bottom of my motherboard and the case does not allow for great airflow thus I went with a Crucial MX300 (could have gotten 950 EVO but I highly regard the hardware power loss protection on the MX300 even though I have a UPS).

    Actually for any heatsink of any kind, you want it as thin as possible, but with as much area as possible, so the heat is absorbed over to it, then dissipated through air flow. Even weak air flow is enough for the M.2 as long as it gets it away.

    Thicker heatsinks actually insulates the object, and it takes much longer for the heat to saturate the heatsink and move to the top of it, so the breeze can carry the heat away.

    I meant tallest fins, which still would account as the thickness of the heatsink.

    Got this one for mine, again the tallest (thickest) I can go since my SSD in bottom mounted:
