Optimized Aluminum Heat Spreaders with Nanocarbon Coating for 20% Cooler
Challenged passive cooling maximizes surface area for heat dissipation with advanced thermal technology Nanocarbon coating. Applied with dual side high conductivity thermal pad, it ensures heat will be effectively transferred to the heatsink. The 7mm height heatsink is compatible with all M.2 slots including the ones under graphics card.
Efficient Heat Spreader Design
Compared with regular heat spreader, the new highly efficient heat spreader improves thermal dissipation to extend 46% more time running at high speed. In addition, compared to the one without heatsink, AORUS 7000s Gen4 SSD runs 5 times longer at 7GB/s. Enjoy the smoother & upgraded storage performance.
Why is keeping an SSDs at lower temperatures so important?
Higher working temperature may cause data loss. The degradation factor of data loss could be a hundred times higher. With Heat Spreaders, the AORUS Gen4 7000s SSD can operate at lower working temperatures to improve data storage reliability. Furthermore, SSDs can run at extreme performance longer.
