Nvme temp at 77c - 171f


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I replaced my Nvme with a Samsung EVO 970 Plus 2TB.

Not sure what was the temperature beofre with the original one but now when I look at the sensor with Aida64 or HWInfo, it reads 77 degree centigrade - 171 degree Fahrenheit.

 

is that normal for the Corsair one or is it that my Nvme is defect?

Here's your answer, after running for a bit that is normal. I have the same Samsung NVME and normally run the main fan max setting to keep it below 65c. C1 currently isn't designed to keep an NVME cool in that tight space. All you can do is run the main fan faster and louder. Those Samsungs perform great but they get hot hot.

I see, thank you for the answer. It's probably a stupid question but it's the first time I have a Corsair gear and use iCue. How do you set the fan speed?

Mine are doing it automatically for the moment

Found it !. I created a new profile and changed the custom to 70% (it's still relatively silent and cool the drive to 64 degress).

I use Streamdeck to change the profile when the drive is getting a little hot for my taste.

 

Next step is to investigate how I can automate this and change the profile automatically based on the Nvme temp
