Hi there

I have a SFF PC (Lenovo IdeaCentre 620S). It has Optane port, into which I have connected a WD Blue SN550 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD as my main drive (for OS and data).

The drive works perfectly (blazing fast by the way) - Windows now runs so smoothly.

However, I have noticed (CrystalDiskInfo) that the drive runs routinely around 67 degrees (sometimes reaching 72 degrees).

Is this:
  1. normal?
  2. safe (for the NVMe drive longevity, as well as for other components on the PC)?

Seems a bit warm what do other temps look like?

Smaller cases have more thermal issues. I like full tower cases, you will get cooler temps.

NVME should be ok as long its under the thermal limit. But your getting close Operating Temperatures7 32°F to 158°F (0°C to 70°C) .

This test shows 61C

I've seen the NVMe temp reach 73 degrees celsius a few times today . Will this cause cause damage/longevity issues to the SSD
