SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit (HS-M2-SSD)
The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit is designed to cool down the M.2 Type SSD efficiently and to prevent thermal throttling. It helps to improve performance, to increase durability and to enhance data integrity of the solid-state drives. The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit uses the ultra slim-size aluminum heatsink and the specially crafted thermal pads to deliver the best heat transfer and to maintain significantly lowered operating temperatures for the memory IC and other electronic components of the M.2 Type SSD.
Additionally, the set of 3 silicone ring fixtures is supplied with the SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit to ensure safe mounting of the heatsinks and to prevent slip off in case of transportation or mechanical shock. The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit provides quick installation and fits all the standard M.2 type SSD designed for laptops or desktop computer systems.
Thermal Throttling explained:
Thermal Throttling is a technique whereby the frequency of an IC can be automatically adjusted to reduce the amount of heat generated by the IC. Normally, the SSD electronic components operate within the standard temperature range at full speed. But in case of high workloads – the apps such as computer games, video processing or other data-intensive computing – an excessive heat can be generated by the SSD controller and memory ICs due to a large amount of read/write operations and high data output.
To cool down the SSD, an automatic duty cycle is applied, the effective SSD frequency becomes lower, and the operating temperature gradually comes to the normal range. For this cycle, performance of the SSD degrades until it runs cooler. Some laptops may also have poor cooling inside the M.2 cabinet. In that case, a sequential activation of thermal throttling may occur, resulting in constant underperformance of the M.2 type SSD.
The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit significantly improves cooling of the M.2 type SSD. Therefore, operating temperature of the supported SSD becomes much lower. The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit helps to maintain temperature within the normal range under high workloads and prevents thermal throttling from activation.

“Abbiamo testato il SubZero su una piattaforma X299. Senza di esso il 960 arrivava facilmente a temperature intorno ai 90 gradi, diminuendo drasticamente le prestazioni! Una volta installato il piccolo dissipatore non abbiamo superato i 60 gradi, senza diminuzioni serie di prestazioni. Ovviamente le temperature possono variare a seconda della aerazione del vostro case.”
