adata sp550 ssd unusually hot

My ssd is running unusually hot recently, around 45 - 55c, under small use while sitting directly in front of a 120mm fan. I haven't found a way to solve this yet, ideas?

ambient temp is only 65f (18.333c)

and yes i mean ssd, not hdd
i don't think Ive ever seen an ssd generate heat like this before, i'm stumped

  1. Best answer
    During data write operations, most SSD controllers can peak out around 105 C. Running at that temp is actually quite fine. Also, the SP550 doesn't have much of a heatsink as the casing is plastic I believe.
  2. thanks for the reply
    im probably going to buy this http://www.amazon.com/WDSL00S-IcePack-Drive-Mounting-Heatsink/dp/B008L5TQIS/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8

    just to reduce the temps a little
  3. That's more designed for mechanical HDD's as they tend to put out a lot more heat. You can try it, but I doubt it'll change the temps.
