Intel SSD 600p Series NVMe SSD Temperatures: ensure you cool it properly even for moderate use

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/30

A short while ago, I installed a pair of 1TB Intel 600p NVMe SSD devices.

Performing a straight rsync backup of some 100 gigabyte of data managed to shutdown both of them: the throttling was so much that VMware ESXi lost the volumes on it and showed “Permanently inaccessible device”.

I was quite surprised as the initial reviews did not mention any temperature problems, but apparently there are.

Since then I’ve put a 120mm fan near to it which made the problems go away, but it still every now and then jumped to over 60 degrees Celsius.

Later I “fixed” it in a better way for cooling getting the idle temperature around 30 degrees Celsius and heavy duty temperatures around 40 degrees Celsius:

I did not have to mount any M.2 heatsinks on them yet; they probably won’t fit under the fan anyway
