    I use the Jonsbo heatsinks. Work as intended and cheap.

    With propper case airflow it shouldn't go hot enough for it to matter, neither will a heatsink help if that airflow sucks.

    ek sell nvme blocks for cooling the drives but if you want it watercooled them i recommend these Bykski blocks which i use for my nvme drives. Blocks are made of tempered glass with a good solid quality and mount. [​IMG]

    This.
    NAND wear rate increases if its not warm enough while being written to.
    So rather than cooling them, a bit of heat is useful.

    One of my Sabrent Rocket 1TB has its metal foil attached and is aimply air cooled, a fan blows air near it.
    The long term has shown the core maxed at 50C so is adequate for my use.

    The other has a heatsink that came with the mobo pushing on the the processor only, but still has the metal foil on it to raise NAND temp a little when in use.
    It helps that heat passes through the foil first, its a good idea to leave it in place when fitting a heatsink.

    I installed my new system drive, Samsung 980 Pro, with Be Quiet MC1 cooler. The drive is idling at 44-45C, so I don't think the NAND is suffering from too low temperature. From what I read, the passive cooling elements of rather conservative size aren't dropping the temps that much anyway.
