    Question Temps in new build

    Howdy all. I'm trying to find info on temps - I've looked hard, but my search fu is ailing, I suppose. Hopefully someone here can give me an answer.

    Here's my new build, done just 3 weeks ago - my first since 2001, so I'm very pleased with it!

    Phanteks Enthoo Luxe case with stock fans (1 - 200mm front intake, 1 - 140mm top exh, 1 - 140mm rear exh.), plus 1 added Phanteks 140mm intake on the bottom in front of the PSU;
    Gigabyte Z170 Gaming 7, with updated BIOS;
    Intel Skylake I7-6700K - no OC;
    CM Hyper 212 Evo CPU cooler;
    MSI GeForce 970 100ME - no OC;
    32GB GSkill 3000;
    Samsung 512GB 950 Pro M2 NVME boot/OS drive. Mounted in the top M2 slot, between the CPU and the GPU;
    Samsung 1TB 850 Evo for storage. The upper drive cage is removed for better airflow, and the 850 Evo is mounted in the lower cage all by itself;
    EVGA G2 850 Gold Plus PSU;
    2 ASUS optical drives for whatever;
    ASUS PCI-E wireless adapter.

    The temps I'm concerned with are for the 950 Pro. On cold boot, it's already 6c higher than the 850 Evo - which is usually 26-27c. With normal use - surfing or whatever, it climbs to around 42-43c. With any gaming (Fallout 4) it climbs to the high 40's - right now at 7:45 am EST I've been on it for about 30-45 minutes just surfing and running a download, and it's sitting at 41-43c, and the 850 Evo is at 27c - but the 850 Evo does have the front 200mm intake fan blowing right on it. The CPU is at 37c with the CPU fan at 1000-1100 rpm, and the case fans at 800-850 rpm. All case fans controlled by the MOBO via the Phanteks fan hub. Are these temps for the 950 Pro a cause for concern, or am I just being paranoid with the new build??

    TIA,
    Mike.

    Mike,

    950 Pro M.2 operating temp range: 0-70C according to the spec sheet so if you're running at 40C I wouldn't worry too much. YMMV.

    'Preciate you putting my mind at ease! Don't know what seems to ail my search-fu, but it sucks right now. Gotta back up and punt, I suppose, and let the fu reset.

    Thanks again,
    Mike.

    I don't see a concern here, those are excellent temperatures.

    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.

    Build your own system; get everything you want and nothing you don't.

    I would expect the 950 to be hotter as it's between large heat emitters and next to other mobo components. Anything less than 50 is fine IMO.
    I would monitor the temperature with something like Crystal Disk Info and set an alarm if the temp goes over 48ish.

    cheers, Paul

    Sorry for the delay in responding, Paul. As far as the 950 - yeah, it's location isn't as good as it could be for cooling. Can't have everything, I know. I'm gonna devote some study to see if I can come up with a way to mount a fan so it's aimed at it. Maybe attach it to the frame somehow. We shall see. I do use the free version of a HD utility called Hard Drive Sentinel just for such a thing (as well as warning me of an imminent HD failure), also. Haven't set any alarms, though.

    Thanks again,
    Mike.
