Ultimate SSD Cooler
IceCap is crafted to keep your M.2 SSD cool under any workload or usage scenario, boost drive performance and improve its lifespan. The newly designed aluminum heatsink, 2 high-performance GP-Extreme thermal pads and secure mounting all ensure effective heat dissipation and help maintain significantly lowered operating temperature for the M.2 Type SSD Controller and Memory ICs.
IceCap supports the latest high-performance PCIe Gen 4 M.2 NVMe SSD up to 4TB and fully compatible with the PS5 SSD upgrade slot.
SSD 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 electronic components operate within the standard temperature range at full speed. But in case of high workloads – while running the apps such as computer games, video processing or data manipulation – an excessive heat can be generated by the SSD controller and Memory ICs due to high data throughput.
To cool down the SSD, an automatic duty cycle is applied, the effective frequency becomes lower, and the operating temperature gradually comes into the normal range. For this cycle, performance of the SSD degrades until it runs cooler.
IceCap significantly improves cooling of the SSD. Therefore, the operating temperature becomes much lower and thermal throttling is prevented from activation under any workload or usage scenario.
