Question NVMe SSD COVER ?

probably the cooler for the nvme, look at your motherboard manual

it's more important for us to know your system specs than the nvme drive info, especially what mobo

the manual will probably show you how to install the nvme properly

Ok I will take a look thank you. The motherboard is a Z590-A PRO.

Is a cooler usually needed for an SSD? I’ve never heard of this.

NVME SSDs usually run relatively hot, There are some with heat sink installed but there are also separate, aftermarket coolers for them.
There's no reason not to use heat sink that comes with MB.
That 970 Evo can easily hit 80c+ with hard usage but it's best up to 40c. That's main reason MB manufacturers started to include heat sinks.
There should be a heat transfer pad on the back of heat sink that is usually covered by a some foil which has to be removed.
