Hello, everyone. I hope you are fine.

I've bought an MSI b660m Mortar Wifi for a 12400. I don't have an m2 ssd, but a regular sata ssd, the brick one. In the video below, at 4:00, the op removes a sticker that is under the 1st m2's heatsink. Do I have to remove it as well if i ain't using one? There's a 2nd heatsink as well, but op doesn't remove anything from it, or at least they do not show it.


Thanks in advance.

The sticker on the heat sink is there to keep the side cooling the SSD clean until it's actually needed. Plus it's plastic, so it'll hamper the heat sink's ability to cool the SSD.

Although just so it's clear though, do not remove the sticker from the SSD itself.
But I don't have an m2 factor ssd, so the that socket is gonna be empty. do I still need to remove the plastic?
