Overkill, but useful overkill since it will help remove thermal throttling even more.

I would like to see how this performs when sat near Blower and Open Air GPUs

I know that this is completely overkill and unnecessary. However for some reason I really like it.

Or you could just stop caring about perfect aesthetics on your PC case and get a case that has a side panel intake fan. Or mod an existing case to support one. Functionality > aesthetics.

Sorry the 1990s called and said FU, we are keeping our sidecase Fans
I think we are at an era where functionality and aesthetics are the key to a good machine.
Although if the world took functionality over looks, then it would be a blessing not to see stupid RGB !

That would not make much of a difference though since an m.2 doesnt have enough surface area to cool down from a side intake fan

Except for that fact you can turn off RGB on almost everything that has it with software.... :P

Of course without RGB I couldn't have my Strix 1070 change colors with my music or in-game damage.

Not that RGB is 100% necessary for that either, however it is nice to have a CHOICE to change colors to whatever I want, rather then the old "you are stuck with blue / red / white" that past years were all about.

Some designs for RGB are really tacky though....looking at you coolermaster air coolers of recent. They are hideous to look at imo.

Got to give it to Cryorig they have people who know how to make nice looking things, I'd not mind that in my case even though I don't have an M.2

Looks like something that Thermalright made BITD for RAM and NBs. I like the copper and the shape of the fins. Very "biker gang" sorta thing. I question its compatibility though, especially with big GPUs. I suppose it's best for WC rigs where the M.2 and etc don't get any air.
