Hello,

thinking about this Kingston A2000 NVMe SSD for my Operating system, frequently used apps for general use and for light, 1080p editing, will it need a heatsink?
Everywhere I look, they test their NVMEs with heavy, 4k renders, which is simply not what I'll be doing anytime soon.
My guy Paul be saying No, but pretty much everywhere else says Yes.

Thanks much

Probably not, only if you don't copy to/from very large files for long at a time.
