    Why Toshiba NVMe M.2 ? You know they run hot and throttling easy? @Mobius 1 :rolleyes: Several of them run +80c in some laptop chassis. With end results as fast decreased drive remaining life and fully throttling:cool:

    I thought it would be an ideal fast drive to start up Windows 10 and could navigate lag free and play games with very little loading times instead of using a SATA SSD M.2 drive?

    I don't know what to do now, I've bought. Is there no heat sink material i can put under/on top of the M.2 drive? Sorry I'm a noob with M.2 SSD's... :p

    Please assist how if I add some sort of material or heat sink to absorb heat from the M.2?

    Please advise on the above questions. I really appreciate your input. :)

    a card will do just fine, but take care since upper receiver plastic is kinda soft

    A normal Credit card? That's all? Do I start from the top while the screen is open? If yes where should I enter the card to make a opening? Many thanks

    That's not good. I just bought the 512GB m.2 off eBay and seller doesn't offer returns :( :( I don't know what to do. Should I get a SATA m.2 like the Sandisk x400 or Crucial MX300 instead? :(

    If you still want NVMe, choose Samsung. Same for SATA as well.
