The M.2 SSD is mounted with a thermal pad so that the adapter card alone can already offer a passive cooling. For the best cooling performance the adapter card can be also used with a passive heat sink made of black anodized aluminum or a water block made of copper. When using these heat sinks a second thermal pad also covers the front side of the M.2 SSD.

The water block offers common G1/4 threads into both directions. The connector terminal is the same as used for Aqua Computers kryographics blocks. This allows using kryoconnect adapter kits to connect several blocks directly with each other.

Wow pretty nifty! I actually just picked up an AngelBird PX1 Heat-sink.

I don't fully understand all the m.2 sizing's but does this thing look like it will be limited in terms of length for larger capacity m.2 drives?

Yea it looks like it's limited to 2280, the 80 being 80mm. Which is pretty standard up to 480-512GB.

Complete overkill. You could probably stop the hottest running M.2 drives in existence from ever throttling at all just by attaching the block and not running any water through it.

Of course, most of this stuff is decorative, and plenty of people like having overkill loops with blocks on all sorts of components that don't need them.

m.2 nvme drives already fall into the overkill category don't they?

If you're not manipulating very large files all day long, yes, definitely.

Exactly, so like almost everyone using these things as boot drives. Doesn't change the fact that I want one but I am realistic about the mostly non existent benefit over regular SSD's.... which is why I'm like "why not waterblock it!"

Aqua Computers knows what they're doing i suppose !

It is compatible with the form factors 2280, 2260 and 2242.

This is stupid..

No one runs i/o intensive tasks from these consumer ssds..

This is another ridiculous vanity item that does jack crap nothing..

I don't know. it puts your valuable data under a block of liquid.

yeah I don't have much here. It is pretty laughable. Especially since these are 3W parts, the amount of heat they generate is negligible.

the heat they generate is actually enough that they will throttle due to temps!!

For those of you that don't have experience with M.2 drives; There is absolutely a place for cooling on these devices, as several top tier M.2 SSDs can, and do, thermal throttle.

Hey I'm game for the passive one. You know when this will be at PPCS? Thank you.

You don't NEED to water cool anything... that doesn't mean you shouldn't... nor does it make it any less awesome.

I assume this isn't available at any US online retailer?
