i145 (2020/04) - SSD constantly too hot

Recommended Posts


For the first time in almost 40 years of PC's, a hard disk crashed: the Samsung SSD of my i145 Corsair. Was very surprised but things happen. Bought a new Samsung 970 evo plus and while mounting, which is a mess..., it became clear why this disk failed. It's mounted on the back of the mother board just a centimeter away from the GPU.

While installing I kept an eye on the temperature and it confirms my thoughts. In idle the temperature is around 65°C and a little effort makes it mount to 100°C easily. The Samsung Magician constantly indicates "Too high temperature".

Does anyone of you knows this issue and, more important, a solution because at this speed, my SSD will probably fry again withing the year.
