Awesome build. Glad to see another DeskMini fan! The Thermalright cooler shows exactly the amazing scale these systems have.

Have to ask: do you actually need a heatsink on the drive? What kind of loads are you subjecting it to? What temperatures are you seeing?Especially with it positioned right in the airflow path from the CPU cooler, one would think that thermal throttling would be a non-issue.
It's very useful. SSD will overheat frequently, and thin heatsink also not help much when copying large files.

Hm, interesting. What brand/model is the SSD? I do have a (much!) larger case, but my 960 Evo lives behind the motherboard with very little access to air, no heatsink, and the only air intake in my case is through a radiator, but I've still never seen ti exceed 75C even when stress testing.

I'm using Samsung 970 Evo. I tried copy over 100G large files, there is throttling due to overheat.

Well, if that's something you do often, I suppose you're one of those edge cases that actually might have need for an SSD heatsink then :)

The I/O shield is not on properly where the power connector is. The clip should be inside the case.

1. So the i7-8700k is recognized by the BIOS. What about the i7-8086k, do you know if it will be recognized by the BIOS?
2. What is the CPU fan speed set for in the BIOS?
