600p - what are the blue plastic strips for....?

Probably a silly question but...my new 600p SSD came with 3 rectangular blue plastic strips with adhesive. I'm assuming they are to do with heat management - but I can't find any documentation to tell me just how to use them!

Can anyone help me or point to help?

I'm guessing heat issues are important - my SSD is currently in an external case to clone, and man does it get hot

Hi DSlat,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel® SSD support group with your request for assistance with your Intel® SSD 600p Series.

 

As per your comment, we have no seen such blue strips; as part of our product factory packaging; in the box, it’s only included the SSD itself and the information booklet.

 

You have mentioned the use of an external enclosure; could it be possible, these strips came with it? Could you send us a picture of those strips?

 

As an important detail, let me indicate, Intel® has no validated any external enclosures for our SSD’s, therefore we don’t encourage the use of any brand of enclosures available in the market.

 

To further collaborate in a solution, we will appreciate if you can send us the markings of your SSD as detailed in the following link: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000025532/memory-and-storage.html

 

Please let us know if you might need further assistance.

 

We will be looking forward to your reply.

 

Best regards,

I would bet that those blue strips are actually metal (or at least some sort of heat conducting material) and, if adhered to the ICs on a M.2 SSD, will help dissipate their heat better.

 

Many external brackets and enclosures include some method for dissipating the heat from the M.2 SSD into the chassis of the bracket/enclosure itself.
