GPD Win2 M.2 upgrade too hot
« on: June 10, 2021, 11:50:42 pm »
Hi
I recently got a new M.2 SSD for the Win 2, it is a Transcend 256GB MTS430S and it runs hot, really hot.  I even bought some small copper squares and some arctic thermal pads, I put the copper on top of the pads and it still hit 61c just downloading a steam game at 4MB/s and it wasn't even on charge.  I don't even remember having a problem with the original drive, although it is slower.  It's just not really comfortable to hold with the heat, I do have a fan I can attach to the back but are there any other drives that don't heat up so much?

Thanks
