I have 2 m.2 ssd installed on my laptop. However I did notice that the other slot doesnt have heatsink included and that questions me. I did run crystal mark along with crystal info and I saw that it reaches 72 degrees celcius while the default one I have reaches under 60 degrees only. Is it bad to reach that kind of temp? If so where can I get one? Or is it okay if I just put a 1.0 mm thermal pad on it. Also I wanted to replace the thermal pad on my default one that has heatsink, will 1.0 mm do the job?
