WD Black M.2 nvme M.2 Running Hot


#1

Mine is routinely running between 47-51C. The load is not all that heavy. Is this normal? Seems pretty hot to me.


#2

If it’s the older 512GB one that doesn’t seem unusual (e.g. 57C on B35900WD firmware at this post and mine is running 59-60C on B35500WD).


#3

Mine used to run much cooler. Since I’ve added 16 MB of RAM, it is now running ~140 deg. F./60 C… It passes the S.M.A.R.T. test without error and nothing is being logged by WD SSD Dashboard as troublesome.
