Hi everyone! I greatly appreciated your help on my last question so I hoped you could help me again!
I installed a 1tb Samsung 980 pro nvme (w/ built in heat sink) in slot 1 of my Asus ROG strix z590. The heatsink cover plate for the mobo does not go back on over this nvme because the built in heat sink is too tall. Are there longer screws I can buy with the same threading to get my cover back on? I would like to see if there are benefits from additional cooling (the slot is right above my GPU backplate and sees a lot of radiant heat)and the cover has ALEDs I want in there. Thanks ahead of time!

if your nvme has its own heatsink, why are you tryin to slap on it another heatsink?
The amount of radiant heat from my GPU backplate makes it run a little warmer than I'd like. Hoping to create another transference of heat from the built in to the mobo heat sink. Also, the mobo one has ALEDs

Can you use thermal tape somewhere............... instead of a heatsink?

How high are temps without the NVMe heatsink?

Can you alter your fan setup...speeds or direction of airflow?
