High-end M.2 solid state disks can get pretty hot and this can result in reduced performance due to throttling. Alphacool delivers an answer to this issue by rolling out a cooling module for M.2 SSDs. The product is made from aluminium and looks very similar to a basic memory module headspreader. Alphacool sells it via its website for 12.59EUR.
Alphacool is now the first manufacturer to offer a mini cooler for M.2 SSDs.
This cooler provides passive cooling that ensures better performance power. Its original appearance also lets it fit seamlessly into any system.
Everything needed for easy setup is included: thermal pads, clips, and two cooling plates. First, the thermal pads are placed onto the chips. Then, the cooling plates are placed on top of these and fastened with the clips.
The slight height of the cooling plates ensures they aren’t in the way during installation, as well as letting them quickly dissipate heat!
Cooling plate dimensions (LxWxH): 68.3 x 22 x 2 mm
The Alphacool HDX - M.2 Cooler is compatible with SSDs that have single- or double-sided chip placement. Suitable thermal pads are included with the cooler.
