A lot of high performance NVMe SSDs will heat up similarly to the 970.Its inside a laptop(Predator Helios 300). When I was doing the file transfer, the CPU was at 50'C and GPU was at 40'C. So if I buy a new one, will it also heat like this. I think the current SSD is generating that much heat by itself.
All the monitoring software on Earth will just show you what the SSD sensor reads.I have checked the temperature with crystaldiskinfo, samsung magician and hwinfo64. Hwinfo shows 2 temps one for drive1 and another drive2(I have mentioned earlier). Drive does heat to 80'C and sometmes even more. Currently I am in a room of ambient 23'C and I ran crystaldisk and its again at 79'C(in about 30 secs it will reach 80+). The ASIC controller is worse as it goes straight to 97'C the instant I start the test. How do I know if temp sensors are malfunctioning?
If it's about a standard SSD, just pop up the SSD cover and you can touch it.I can't unfortunately touch the SSD because it's in a laptop. However the area above the SSD becomes quite hot it would be about 60 degrees I think. I ran crystal disk benchmark and compared my results online, I found that the first 2 read tests give exceptional scores but after that performance drops to exactly half of what's expected. At the same time I can also notice that the temperature crosses 80'C. My only concern is that if I replace this, the new one will also heat this way? Also my cpu doesn't cross the high 50's and GPU doesn't cross 40's so I don't think SSD heating is because of the cpu or GPU.
So it's not good at all.Ok I tried it, it is indeed hot. I coudlnt even keep my finger there for a second.
OK so yous is a M.2 SSD, it seems that you can't put an after market heatsink on it when when it's a laptop.There is no ssd compartment in my laptop. I have to remove the entire case. I already have a cooling pad but no avail. So do I replace this ssd with another samsung or even the new one will heat the same way?
I saw the photo, and I think there might be a solution. You could try to place a piece of thermal pad between the SSD and the aluminum case, the case would act like a giant heatsink.I just opened it. Its takes some effort to open the back case. U can google Predator helios 300(PH315-51) teardown. There you can see the ssd location. Its on the side there are some vents near it but not directly above the ssd. the case is aluminium.
You can apply several layers of thermal pad until it touches the case, the thermal pad are removable. It's normal for the case to become warm, many laptops from Apple use the case for heat dissipation.And also there is quite a big gap there so it wont touch the case. If it does then the case will become very hot right
