* Includes two gray colored thermal pads with different thickness. For single sided M.2 SSD (flat back without component), please use 1.5mm thick pad; for double sided M.2 SSD (both sides with components), please use 1mm thick pad.
** If one gray pad is not thick enough to make contact with both M.2 SSD and your motherboard or adapter card, then you should carefully attach both included pads in your TP02-M2 kit together (make sure to avoid trapping air bubbles between them). Your goal is to create enough thickness to enable solid contacts so the heat from M.2 SSD can be transferred through to the motherboard or adapter card
*** If the M .2 slot on the motherboard is situated next to a PCIe slot, the height of the TP02-M2 ‘s heat sink may interfere with graphic card or expansion card installation, we recommended installing TP02-M2 onto other available M.2 slots on the motherboard to avoid interference issue.
