Hi guys

I'm getting an MSI X570 MEG Unify motherboard and I'm wondering if I need to get m.2 ssds with heatsinks or not. The board seems to have some covers over where the m.2s go and wondering if these are heatsinks.

Kind regards, Andrew

Those aren't just covers, there is a heasink on each of the 3 M.2 slots, so it is not required.
If you get a Ryzen 3000 series and a PCIe 4.0 SSD then those heatsinks come handy, since it could get pretty toasty.
