It won't fit though as has been said.

Intel is claiming that the SSDs do add heat and are providing a pair of little pads to help disparate the heat... I don't know if they are adding heat or not but I have the pads in all my NUCs now.

I have never felt heat coming off a SSD. There are no moving parts inside so I am not sure if this is true. It would be the same as a flash drive connected to your computer.

In any event the pads sound like something that they should have included from the beginning. I will definitely give them a call.

Are you seriously implying that it’s the moving parts in the PC that generate all the heat?
Point an IR thermometer at it. It’s not cold.

No, I am comparing it to something like a hard drive which has a lot of moving parts and thus much more heat.

Let me rephrase --- a SSD makes minimal heat that I have never considered as significant.

Sure it creates some heat (everything does that has electricity I would assume) but I don't consider it as significant.

I know that’s what you meant. I just remember back to the old days during the transition from the 386 to the 486. A lot of people were infuriated that the 486 required a heatsink and fan! That it was Intel’s cheap fix to bad engineering!

SSDs can produce considerable heat. The Intel 525 SSD gets uncomfortably hot in a mSATA to USB 3.0 enclosure under constant read/write.

My crucial m4 64gb msata also gets a little hot.

Ask Intel for a set of pads for your NUC... They are supposed to transfer the heat out of the NUC.

Is it really needed? I haven't had any major problems with my NUC.

I had a problem with my NUC being over 100C and they sent me the pads... It def knocked the temps down.

My NUC does not get that hot, the hottest I've seen it is around 70c but I do run my fan higher than normal.

I would bet most of that heat is produced by the enclosure itself and transferred to the mSATA SSD.

Edit: I have found a few studies that list the MAX temperature above ambient temp of SSDs at 2-6 C.

So at normal use figure this at the lower end. Not completely cool but not much heat production either.

Something seems off here...
