So i have a 970 Evo Plus 500GB on a B450 Aorus Pro right now.It's a motherboard who comes with heatsinks for both M2 slots.It's temperatures are logical...35-38 degrees Celcius when idle and it can get up to 47 degrees when i'm playing a game.Most of the time during gaming it sits on 40-42 degrees.All good with that.

I'm considering to change components due to instability issues and the new motherboard i was looking at (B450-F Gaming from Asus) it doesn't have heatsinks.I know that the m2 can work up to 70 degrees or something like that,but I can't be comfortable with any temp above 50-55.

So i was wondering if it matters that much and what's the difference between them.Reviews and posts in different forums aren't super clear about this subject so i would love to see your opinions.
