MP500 Temperatures ?

Installed my MP500 today on the Sabertooth X99 that has a little compartment you install M.2's in.

Within minutes it got up to 80'c, I took the little compartment door off to completely expose it and it went down to 70'c with fans circulating a good amount of air.

I then got an M.2 PCI-E adapter card and put it in there with 2 x 140mm Corsair ML Pro fans from the front intake of the Corsair 540 blowing air towards it and it still stays at around 70'c.

I read Corsairs stats that 65'c is the upper most operating temp yet even with really good airflow this thing won't drop below 70'c during a game.

Minus watercooling is there anything else I could possibly do ?

What about a M.2 heat sink like you can get for the MSI boards?



Or have a look at the Alphacool MDX M.2 coolers.

What app are you using to monitor the temp?

Hwinfo and Corsair Link, Both show the same readings.

Do some Crystal disk marks.

Could be a dodgy sensor. If the numbers pan out then Id just ignore it

Reads and writes are spot on but the temp is a tad high, Corsairs own site says 65'c is the upper most temp yet idle it sits at 60'c and during actual use it can go as high as 77'c, This is with it in an Asus PCI-E expansion card with lots of airflow.

TBH Its under warranty, Id just use it and see how you get on. If the performance is the same when hot, its probably a fecked sensor and not worth faffing about replacing.

True that, If it borks and goes wonky I'll just use the warranty

Have you noticed any changes on the temperature? or it's been pretty much the same?

It seems to always be around 60'c during normal desktop use and 70'c during game loads.
