MSI's M.2 Shield has been found to raise SSD temperatures

MSI's M.2 Shield has been found to raise SSD temperatures, instead of lowering them like advertised.



Read more on MSI's M.2 Shield thermal results.

it was a "brilliant" idea made by people who have no idea of thermodynamics whatsoever every material has a maximum thermal limit it reaches a point where it would absorb heat but then it will reach equilibrium after that point the temperature is going to be identical if not lower than the item it is in contact with...

I read the article today by Gamers Nexus. What a shame its pants because it looks cool. I guess the marketing worked.

Well a possible solution is to remove the heatsink.
Although I think someone will come up with a solution "off the shield".

Doesn't ASUS offer something similar on their new Z270I Strix mITX motherboard?...

You need active cooling in order for the heatsink to work. Otherwise after a certain period of time, it'll actually start to cook it. Heatsinks don't magically cool themselves.. GG MSI.

Exactly this, the positioning of the m.2 was already questionable given how much hot air video cards release inside the case, yeah most of them are below a gpu, but we all know that any airflow that was there from the case will be used by the gpu. The time has come for m.2 to get a better position or simply design a heatsink that can cope and will block the pci-e 1x slot from being used if installed, which is a totally fair compromise.

I think this depends on your case/cooling layout because I have seen it in a review where it did very well. Personally though I would rather make my own, with fins and make sure there was decent airflow over it.

Yeah if you have a non blower style gpu that blows the air on top of that and then the air deflects and moves away or a sidepanel fan

Acutally, yes, a heatsink cool itself, it al depends on the radiator surface, more surface = more heat dissipated, either natural convection (without fan) or forced convection (with fan)..
So, the idea wasn't that bad actually, but they just didn't applied it correctly
