For single and double-sided M.2 2280 modules

I bought this along with an M.2 PCIe 2TB SSD. Since the 2TB SSDs have modules on both sides it normally needs a double-sided one. Used this on the slot at the back of the motherboard which normally doesn't have any fans to cool.
Comes with a small magnetic screwdriver and heat pads on both sides. Installation was a breeze.
The ssd without the heatsink was clocking at 46°C at idle and >=82°C on stress. Post the heatsink the temps dropped drastically to 28°C idle and 45°C on stress!
The NR200 vented side panel just about fits with this.
The only con I would say is after fixing the heatsink, the gap from the motherboard to the ssd increases by 1 or 2 millimeters so the screw that came along with the motherboard has trouble reaching the screw hole. You will need to arrange for a longer screw or somehow forcefully use the original screw (which could damage the drive). For the price, I feel this should have been included in the set.
