Hello all

I am planning a new build and the z390 motherboard has two m.2 M key slots; I am planning to buy two corsair m.2 NVMe drives.

However, on the board, one of the m.2 slots has a heatsink above it for cooling, regardless of if its even a 0.1-degree difference i would like to know which drive i should put under heatsink, the one for the OS or the one for Games (same drive type just one for OS and system and the other dedicated to games).

Thanks for help in advance x

You might want to share a link to the M.2 SSD from Corsair you're eyeing, since there's one with a heatsink attached to it from the factory(sold as is) and there's one without said heatsink.

If you're looking at the PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD, you're going to need an AMD platform to take advantage of those speeds.

its the MP510 from corsair -> https://www.corsair.com/uk/en/Categories/Products/Storage/M-2-SSDs/Force-Series-MP510/p/CSSD-F1920GBMP510 and I'm using it on the Z390 Gaming Pro Carbon AC from MSI with an Intel i9-9900k.

It has a small heat sink on it but if you see the mb -> https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/MPG-Z390-GAMING-PRO-CARBON-AC the bottom m.2 slot has heatsink above it. Just want to know if I should put the gaming or system drive under it
