With the advent of PCIe Gen 4, NVMe M.2 SSDs are getting hotter and faster, with two components set to increase even further in the next generation of PCIe 5.0 SSDs. As such, companies are developing more powerful active cooling systems, including Qiao Sibo's blower fan design.
ITHome reports that the M.2 cooler, which attaches directly to the engine, is equipped with an aluminum heatsink and built-in fan that delivers 3000 RPM and a maximum air volume of 4.81CFM. your case will definitely show through the glass window because it measures 76mm x 24.5mm x 70.5mm, weighs 120g and has a maximum sound output of 27.3dB. You may have trouble placing it next to the other components of your board. p>
We've already seen M2 engines with similar integrated cooling solutions - the Aorus Gen4 7000s Prem Gigabyte. The SSD (below) has a nano-carbon heatsink called Thermal Guard Xtreme, which it claims allows the drive to maintain 7 Gbps. Read speeds over 8 hours Meanwhile, Teamgroup has unveiled T-Force Cardea Liquid II, a versatile liquid cooler designed for use with the latest PCIe Gen4 M.2 SSDs.
While these types of SSD coolers can help PCIe Gen4 SSDs maintain a speed of around 7 Gbps Without throttling, it could be because higher power (about 14W) and speed are needed for PCIe 5.0 SSDs. We recently heard from Adata about prototype "Project Nighthawk" and "Project Blackbird" PCIe 5.0 M.2 SSDs that can write sequential read speeds of 14 Gbps and the first 12 Gbps. p>
We can expect to see several PCIe 5.0 SSDs at CES next week, although most of them will likely default. Given that many companies do not exist. p>
