The PCIe Gen5 storage is indeed fast, but also needs good cooling to perform as indented. This is why many brands either equipped their Gen5 storage with a large heatsink or rely on active cooling technology.

ASRock is going looking ahead by introducing Fan-Heatink product series indented for AMD X670E, B650E/B650 and Intel Z790 motherboards. There are at least five types of these coolers, matching the color silver or black color schemes. There is also a special edition just for the XB650E Taichi series. None of them support Intel 600 series, though.

Update: Hassan Mujtaba (Wccftech) has a prototype of this heatsink:

According to ASRock, all types have the same 30mm fan, and they offer the same airflow up to 4.92 CFM. They are 5 centimeters tall, so customer must ensure it will not collide with any components already installed on the motherboards. It is expected that each of those heatsink should cost around $30, but ASRock has not confirmed the pricing yet.
