So my SSD just reach 76% slowly in the span of 4-5 months.

Now its heating too much more than the usual temp. Tried relocating it inside the case but airflow is not the problem.

I am also hearing beeping sounds lately, if that's related.

Hard disk sentinel says monitor it and i think the media wearout indicator is increasing?

The Media Wearout Indicator has a raw value of 152311822. The hexadecimal equivalent is 0x914180E.

This number consists of four 8-bit parts:

0x914180E -> 0x09 0x14 / 0x18 0x0E​
Converting back to decimal we get ...

9 20 / 24 14​

The first number pair represents the wear in terms of P/E cycles (= 9.20%).

The second number pair is the wear in terms of TBW (= 24.14%).

So HD Sentinel is reporting the health based on the TBW value (76 = 100 - 24.14).

The average number of P/E cycles reported by SMART is 46.

Therefore the rated number of P/E cycles is ...

46 / 9.20% x 100% = 500 P/E cycles​
The total GBs written is 24186.

Therefore the rated TBW is ...

24.186 / 24.14% x 100% = 100.19 TBW​

Oh i kinda get your point, so im 76% away from consuming the TBW.
Though how does it affect or relate now with the recent high temp on my ssd?
