My system
CPU: AMD RYZEN 5 5600X
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090
Motherboard: ASUSTeK ROG CROSSHAIR VIII HERO
SSD: Samsung SSD 980 PRO 1TB

Nothing seems to have been knocked out of position but temps are higher why is that? Temps were much lower before this change so the case isn't a factor in this situation. Temps can reach 50C+ for both CPU and GPU. GPU fans also barely spin

50C isn't remotely hot for the CPU or GPU, especially if there is any sort of activity going on.

If you put the SSD in the NVMe slot powered by the CPU, then it would make sense for the CPU to run slightly hotter now that it has an extra 3.0x4 lanes active which can consume about 1W in its maximum link power state.

You state that you've upgraded the SSD but did you upgrade the SSD on which the OS was on or did you add an SSD to the build or did you add an SSD to a build that didn't have an SSD to begin with? Make and model of your PSU? What BIOS version are you currently on?

If you replaced the SSD that the OS was on, did you clone the OS drive?

If you are concerned you can use MSI Afterburner to make the GPU fans run a little. 30% RPM seems to be the lower limit for Afterburner.

Most GPUs and motherboards I have seen don't allow PWM to go lower than 30%. I have only used Afterburner once and IIRC, there is a warning somewhere in the fan control pages telling you that hardware may reject attempts to set fan speed below a certain amount - I was attempting to set the CPU fan speed to 0 RPM until 40C at the time.

So I swapped the SSD with from a Western Digital SN550 250GB to a Samsung SSD 980 PRO 1TB I also have a Seagate BUP Slim SCSI Disk Device plugged in from USB . I had to install Windows 10 OS from a USB when I swapped the SSD. The PSU is XPG Core Reactor 750W Gold
