WD Black 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Overheating

Recently bought the WD Black 256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe, once as I installed the drive and installed the WD SDD Dashboard Monitor, I was prompted to update the firmware since doing so, my drive idles at 72oC, is this happening to others? Or just a one off and needs to be RMA?


having the same issue. My 256GB M.2 NVMe is (Firmware Upgraded), completely formatted and (Empty) and still has a temperature of (56C) … this isn’t NORMAL AT ALL. Awaiting any generous resolution(s) by the people of WD in charge or concerning party or personnel?..

same here… do you have any cooling system on it? i think given that they dont sell with cooling they are not really suppose to have one, as ram for example has
