Oh. Their solution is that the PRO needs the heat sink installed. Ours were not pro versions and did not come with heat sinks and I guess that is a good thing. I have seen some m.2 drives for clients come with heat sinks and I guess that is the reason.

Hope you are doing well. I was reading an article on the m.2
2280 500GB and 1TB Hard drives, like the one I have and the one you have.
The one we have is the Samsung EVO 970 (STANDARD) m.2 2280
NVMe. My temps using HWINFO shows 38-40 C when idle and 45-49 C under
The one the article references is the Samsung EVO 970 PRO
m.2 2280 NVMe. The article mentions the PRO temps reaching 70+C up to the max
of 95 C. Amazing problem found in the PRO version versus the standard version.
The only difference between what we have, the standard EVO
versus the EVO PRO, is the write speed. It appears the PRO write speed is
causing the heat.
Thank goodness I am not experiencing this heat problem from my observations. Check yours and let me know.
Anyhow, thought you might be interested and check your M.2 temps
more to come...
