Idle Temp 63C - Toshiba XG3 1TB - is this safe?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi

Got a Toshiba THNSN51T02DU7 XG3 SSD 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe, next to new only 7 hours use in Crytsal Info
Drive is OEM of a OCZ RD400

Installed with Asus Hyper M.2 X4 PCI-E Mini Adapter Card

Its idling at 63C - NOTHING in my whole water cooled build is anywhere near this temperature, all low healthy temps sp nothing that could be heating it up like that

I have an industrial fan which I am blowing in my case, temps instantly drop 20C, so it can be cooled but doesn't do it where it is, even though there is nothing around to heat it up either

Any advice on this, is this safe? I can't always run this industrial fan in there haha. As a comparison my 950 PRO runs at 45C in the same case - with the fan can get them equally down to 39C

Thanks

It's hitting 81C on CrystalMark with low airflow and 72C with max airflow

57C with industrial 18inch fan blowing on it

I have the same drive and temps were about the same as yours until I put a heatsink on it, now it stays in the low to mid 50s.

Its an OEM drive made for laptops anyway so I don't think the heat will harm it in any way but may cause some throttling under heavy use.

See my other post here about the heatsink I used:

REP+ !! thanks for confirming, feel a lot better now I thought it was my drive!

Think I'll get the EK heatsink to match my build

The EK ones are only advertised as compatible with single sided drives, but you can probably get it to work somehow (im thinking 0.5mm thermal pad on the top instead of the original 1mm, then 0.5mm again on the bottom where the NAND chips are and 1.0mm where there are no chips to keep it level).

Thanks once again as I was just about to buy !!

That one should work for dual sided drives, the pics show thermal pads for both sides and it even has a heatsink on the back of the pcb.

The Aquacomputer Kryo m.2 is similar but only uses the pcb of the card to cool the backside of the drive.

Sounds good! I've managed to cool a bit changing my fan profile too so its still quiet but not silent. That will do till I get my cooler

Do the crystaldiskmark tests I did that ran my NVMe at 83C cause any damage

It was only 83C for a minute at most, you reckon that wont cause an issue ?

Thanks
