Now having heat problems with the m2 drives. It appears that the CPU is kept cool enough that the fan on it does not pull enough air through to cool the m2 drives under load.
Have had to set the CPU fan to manual and adjust the RPM to keep the m2 drives cool.

You went a little overkill on the m.2 caching ssd's man. A couple 64gb drives would have gave the same performance in almost all use cases. Plus way less heaf

The note on the TVS-682 spec sheet...

> M.2 SSD operations can easily generate excessive heat. It is recommended to install a heatsink (from QNAP or a third-party provider) on the M.2 SSD.

If you are concerned about the heat or if you are having issues with heat after upgrade to core i7 especially the K version.
Swap the heat-sink and the cooler with Noctua NH-L9x65
Its a full CPU cooler with slim fan. It does not interfere with the casing at all.
The good thing about this is that you can us it with the factory installed fan and install your heat sink so the stock fan blows air through the grills as well.
To install this cooler, you will need to remove the chassis screw that holds the stock heat-sink because this one comes with its own bracket which cannot fit into the stock slot.
It comes with a splitter so you can still connect the two fans to thesame socket and the system can throttle both as CPU 1 fan as required.
At 75% load, my worst temp was ~52C.
I also bought 2 Noctua fans (same as on this cooler) to keep my Sata SSDs and HDD cool. Worst temp recorded was ~42C on the SSDs (2x2tb Crucial MX300) and ~40C on the HDD (4x10tb consists of 2 WD Gold, 1 Skyhalk & 1 Ironwolf Pro)
I live in Australia and the ambient temp is usually ~24C and its winter here currently
