Does mobo location matter?

Heatsink and directed air impact on throttling

I have seen some similar testing previously but this is the first testing I've seen to compare cooling methods. I was thinking of some small heatsinks on mine but wanted to do some quantitative testing to prove it. I would have thought that a small ramsink would be appropriate.

That's my thought - probably just needed on the controller.

Not that I recommend spending $75 for a PCIe adapter and a heatsink with blinky lights, but here's Techpowerup's take on the Samsung 950 Pro and how well it does when you add some cooling.

Nice. 30 euros is closer to reasonable. The water block version made me chuckle. :)
