I was only comparing the NVMe temps you provided with my own, not any other drives.

And I've never had a drive hit 60C even in a laptop. Though, admittedly, I only have 1 laptop that has an M.2 drive (Have to check if it is actually NVMe or just M.2 SATA).
Yes, I know but environment temperatures also matter as here in San Francisco, California USA, we don't have air conditioners either. The 60C temps were actually posted many years ago in a screen shot on tenforums in one of the threads where I was having bad blocks on the Samsung drives. That was the only time I actually checked the SSD's temperatures from what I remember. My mistake, it was the 850 Pro I had as the 900 series were all PCIe, the one I am talking about is actually 2.5" in size and I had a Samsung 850 Pro 2.5" 2TB MZ-7KE2T0BW which actually has a operating temperature range up to 70C per the specs.

Just a update, while on Windows Home, I cannot resume the bitlocker process as it kept saying that TPM needs to be configured and when I ran tpm.msc, it says everything is ready so the only way was to first turn off bitlocker and then turn on bitlocker to encrypt the entire drive.
