Many M2 SSDs these days get hot under long duration load, especially the high-end SKU NVMe ones. The result is that the controller can react on the heat and starts to throttle down performance. There are several solution for that already, but Silverstone believes they have the answer, a sticky thermal pad.
With the ever increasing popularity of solid state drive (SSD) being used as the primary storage device in PCs, capacity and performance continue to climb in newer models but so have their operating temperatures. This has resulted in situations where SSDs, especially the smaller M.2 variants with less surface areas have overheated and throttled or shut down completely. T
To help alleviate this new generation of heat problems, SilverStone created the TP01-M2 thermal pad, a simple and effective cooling solution for M.2 SSDs. It has excellent thermal conductivity, is electrically non-conductive, and easy to apply. It is designed to fit between M.2 SSD and M.2 adapter card so it can transfer heat away from SSD to the larger adapter card surface for more effective heat dissipation.
Silverstone charges 5 bucks per strip set kit, but we can;t halp thinking that the heat still needs to be ventilated away by some sort of heatsink.
