Is it normal for NVME SSD to run at 55c at idle, goes way past 70c at gaming load, and reached 85c max before throttling when stress tested using crystal disk mark? I heard that models from ADATA are particularly hot, but not this hot imo. i also checked the heatsink as well since i thought that maybe the NAND flash didn't contact the metal heatsink properly. the heatsink is hot to the touch, even when it's idle. I also tried to turn the RGB off, but it didn't give any significant meaning temperature wise. can someone verify whether this SSD is defective, or this particular model is just this hot? Also, if it's indeed meant to run that hot, can I just slap a custom NVME SSD heatsink on it without potentially crushing the RGB lamps on the PCB?
