Hello tuziwang,

 

 

Regarding your questions, we can let you know that for both form factors you need to have a proper airflow across the drive to provide cooling, such as a front fan and rear fan.

 

 

You may find the information in https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000025741/memory-and-storage/enthusiast-ssd... this link as well as the requirements.
