M.2 fan holder
wellorasus I don't recommend you buy this, for the following reasons. First, On a Z370, the useless name tab hits up against the SATA ports. Second, even though Asus MOBOs have 3D mount points, this uses the MOBO screws to hold it down. And most importantly, there is no way to attach a fan to it. Standard fan screws won't work, and even the rubber screws that come with fans won't work because of the way the bracket's holes are made. This thing is a waste of money.
wellorasus Asus Prime Z370-A. M.2 Heatsink is at the bottom. It comes with a thermal pad to transfer the heat to the heatsink....works great!
wellorasus On the Z370, the M.2 heatsink does an amazing job of cooling without a fan. On my board, I used the VRM fan bracket for a M.2 fan, as my CPU cooler didn't allow any room for a VRM fan. With the M.2 heatsink, I was at room temp.....with the heatsink and fan, I easily run 10 degrees cooler than room temp.
