Comprehensive ASRock H670 Steel Legend Review: Results of “CINEBENCH R23”

While the M.2 heatsink isn’t huge, it can cool a PCIe 4.0 x4 NVMe M.2 SSD 980 PRO module when combined with an air-cooled CPU cooler like this. Even if “CrystalDiskMark 8.0.4” continues to run and a load is applied, the temperature is in the range of 60 degrees, which is a marginal temperature. Of course, the performance also shows without problems, and sequential access is in the range of 6300MB/s for reading and 4700MB/s for writing.
