My SanDisk 128 GIG is running at 38 Celsius, according to its on sensor it rarely goes above this but I don't look often but this is a Desk PC, lappys often run hotter anyway do to being in confined area with limited cooling - Seems its within reason, especially in a laptop

I am afraid it will burn or melt internal parts its soo hot. I overboosted fans! Lol ,What should I do?

My NVMe SSD is partitioned as APFS and exFAT anyway!

I would not worry unless your PC is unstable? If your heat sink pipes are OK and fan free of dust that may be how it is, my SSD in a PC cabinet has lots of air around it & a pretty big fan above it, that makes a difference. There are a few things you can do to cut the load & increase life on a SSD, you don't need Prefetching / Superfetch enabled to start with, often Windows search/Indexing can be removed. Defragging can be (should have been auto disabled) disabled, these cut the continual unneeded work your SSD is doing thereby potentially reducing it's temperature. Others may have alternative advice.

It is OK. Thermal throttling can occur around 70-75 deg C and up, esp with heavy disk activities. MY PC Samsung nvm-e is idling around 44 deg C, hotter than I'd like but oh well. It's in a heat sink, which is optional but can be helpful in some cases (mine is 5-7 deg C lower on one sensor). Are your laptop's vents and fan/s clear of dust/dirt/hair? Are all fans operational? Does your nvme have the latest firmware?

Have you checked your temps with an alternate utility (AIDA64, HWINFO64, etc)?


I would check the forums to see whether any applicable firmware update is causing widespread user problems.

I added a Western Digital SN720 OEM NVMe SSD to my ASUS TUF FX504 laptop and it is always operating at 55 C - 60 C degrees? Is it normal?
That means something is taking the IO in background. If disk usage is showing 0% in task manager > Disk section (NVMe drive), Then I think you need 2 layers of 1mm thermal pads or small heatsink such as Advancing Gene or similar to reduce those temps by 5-10C.
Before adding thermal pads, my crappy Samsung NVme drive used to idle at 55C-60C and thermal throttles instantly. After adding pads, its reduced by 10-12C.
