Dont think i ever got to say thank you for the help JackCY
without this thread i would have bought an overpriced 970 Evo
Edit: this is what i bought never heard of that brand but it was the only thing i could find
Delock makes accessories such as cables and probably docking stations, etc. overall accessories and peripherals. Most of these PCIe convertors are from such companies. https://www.delock.com/produkte/index.html
They've been around a while.

With my MP500 I used one of Chinese heatsinks with micro fan build in and it helped to lower by 10 degrees and lowering even more wont speed it up.
Now with MP510 i only use build in Gigabyte heatsink, the one that came for free with the mobo.
BTW, NAND wants heat, it works better when hot, its the controller that needs to be cooled down, if you cool down the NAND way too much it will start degrading, its known fact you can google it.
So all you need to do is keep the controller under its officially rated working temps that it, there is no reason or actual need to actively cool down NVMe drives.
People with water cooling or huge heatsinks with big fans doing the nand disservice
The temperature sensors are not as accurate as you may hope. https://www.guru3d.com/articles_page..._review,6.html
Mine is 15C too low.
One doesn't need to cool it a lot but sticking it under a hot GPU with no heatsink is bound to throttle it. Even on board with no heatsink it may throttle when you hammer it if there is no airflow over the drive. This is not rare for modern fast SSD controllers.
A small heatsink or motherboard heatsink goes a long way to reduce the controller temperature and spread it's heat out.
This is the smallest cheapest double sided cooler I could find, it's screwed on too, many of these small ones tend to be clipped on one or both sides or outright rubber banded on, yuck!
