Here is a snipping screenshot of the CrystalDiskInfo SSD and HDD information software, where it is immediately noticeable that the Intel SSD is equipped with a temperature sensor. By the way, reading the NVMe PCIe SSD under Windows 7 was not possible, which is why we used Windows 10. According to the internal temperature diode, there was a temperature of approx. 41°C in idle and up to 70°C under load. More information about the M.2 temperature can be found on the Intel SSD 600p field test page.
