The device is a passive cooler, that is, it does not require external power and does not contain moving parts. Regardless, Thermalright’s unique cooler design successfully reduces SSD temperatures by 10 to 20 degrees Celsius, depending on PC layout and room temperature.
Each heatsink goes through rigorous testing to make sure the units meet Thermalright’s stringent quality standards, as the company doesn’t want to be held responsible for consumer computer failures. This SSD heatsink measures 75mm x 22.7mm x 11.7mm, making it only slightly larger than the M.2 SSD itself.
