    Do SSD's need to be cooled to that "degree"?

    If they needed it then we'd see server SSDs with large heatsinks

    Hmmm, maybe - when I installed the SSD in my new laptop I noticed a curious comment in the manual about an SSD heatshield only being installed on laptops pre-fitted with an NVMe drive. I thought nothing of this at the time, but sure enough the spot under my laptop where the SSD is gets very hot in use. I doubt it's a serious issue in and of itself, but I can think of no good reason to not use as much cooling as is reasonably practical...

    My NVME often runs at 50c at idle, they do run a bit warm! When they get to hot they throttle

    The NVME SSD cooler actually looks really nice!

    Yeah m.2s and ssds in general do generate more heat than you expect. I've got a cooler on mine thats made a fair bit of difference.

    Out of interest, how much difference are we talking? And under what kind of scenario?

    I really think it depends on the controller, sticker placements on any hardware, location inside the case, airflow etc etc.

    This is true and Anandtech does look for throttling.

    This kind of cooler is excessive, obviously. If it was required they'd come with more than just metal stickers and just a simple sink.

    Either way, it may increase longevity marginally due to heating / cooling cycles wearing conventional components like controller and diodes and so on.

    Regardless, you'd have to demonstrate throttling on your SSD which was not fixed by a £2 fan to mean this was even close to worthwhile.

    I can't disagree with you more strongly. If your solution to overheating components is a £2 fan, perhaps that's why things are overheating in the first place.
    I'd much rather tackle overheating in a passive manner if it will be effective, instead of introducing further noise and clutter to the inside of my case.

    I think something like this is much more worthwhile on previous generation NVMe drives but more recent editions tends to suffer from thermal issues much less.
