Adding a 2nd NVME...

HP Recommended
30L Z490
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 

Went to install an NVME into SSD1 on my 30L Z490 MB.  After un screwing the plastic cover, I found a ~ .25H X .75"W X 1.5"L black sticky foam underneath stuck to the motherboard.  I removed it and installed the NVME.  I'm wondering now if I should have left the stuff in there as some sort of heat sink?  2021-03-20.jpg

@tensplayer , welcome to the Community.

 

Many manufacturers do use thermal tape/material to shield their M.2's.  However, the ones that I have seen don't look like what you posted.  I suggest that you reinstall it if you can do so without stressing the M.2.

@ibfrenchy, I would appreciate it if you would let us know if this is a heat-sink or just packing.  It certainly doesn't look like any heat-sink that I have seen.

I have asked for a verification from another Expert.
