I purchased the ASUS ROG Strix X570-E motherboard along with a Corsair Force MP600 SSD.
I just realized upon installing my motherboard that it comes with passive cooling for the M.2 slots. I am now wondering if the large heat sink on the MP600 can be removed so it will fit in my motherboard. Would greatly appreciate any input on this?
I'm not 100% familiar with the Corsair MP600 myself, but in gathering information, I did note several reviews where the heat sink was removed for testing. I would go out on a limb and say the drive likely has a set of screws mounting the heat sink from behind and no further adhesive is used to hold the two together.
That said, I would look around the drive to make sure there isn't a warranty void sticker before removing the heat sink. If you do decide to remove the heat sink, your drive should then be a familiar 2280 m.2 solution and should fit with ease into your X570 motherboard.
You may also want to do your own research first if it is a good idea to even remove the heat sink, as it is likely there for a reason and heat could become an issue and might decrease the life of the drive.
