Heat!(y)
I see these bare on main boards. As I've experienced nvme drives run hot and throttle due to this I'm in the process of fitting a heatsink and additional fans to bring my temps down

At rest 61 degrees but had to bump my case fans up temporarily

Even a usb enclosure with a heatsink on it was running a little toasty

40 degrees is meant to be the sweet spot, any lower and they can degrade faster.

Lower temps and degradation??
Tempted by this. My original plan was a small ssd for Windows, and a big donkey hdd?

That's what I was going to do. A 500GB NVMe drive for Windows and a few other games for about £50, then a 1TB or 2TB HDD for the bulk of games etc..

Good suggestion. It seems now hating on HDD's is on trend but it's good to see some people have sense

This is why I wanted a NMVe large enough for the online games I regularly play such as R6, as I don't mind waiting a few extra seconds for single player games to load on a HDD. I also don't want to keep deleting and reinstalling games for the sake of hating HDDs, as I can't stretch to bigger SSDs.

This is quite a good demonstration of load times in games - M.2 NVME vs SSD vs SSHD vs HDD Game Loading Times

Apparently Gamers Nexus said something like that (I'm not overly convinced)

Totally agree.

I bought a 1Tb NVME SSD to put inside a USB-C enclosure (with heatsink and mini fan inside). Copying a 140gb file started off pretty quick, then as it got hotter, the transfer dropped as far as 7mb/s, even disconnected from Windows several times. Ended up returning the enclosure and bought a Samsung T5 instead, although not as quick, but it's consistent with the transfer speed.

Could be because it was QLC too. These drives takes a portion of the stage space as "cache" but when that is saturated you're writing directly to the QLC which can be very slow.
7mb/s seems unusually slow too even for a hot nvme ? Could have been faulty.

Thanks for the info.

I thought the same to start with, so I have returned both the enclosure and the SSD (Adata 8200 nvme) and the problems were the same. Hence I have stuck with the Samsung T5, which has been working flawlessly so far.
would this be better for a few extra pounds amazon.co.uk/dp/…h=1 and would this be ok for this board ASUS® ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING: ATX, LGA1151, USB 3.0, SATA 6GBs ? cheers
Will this fit on my Macbook Air (2014, A1466 Model)?
