Why a Heat Sink ???

Pros: Operates with performance equivalent to the other M.2 NVMe SSD's with the Phison E-12 controller. This SSD also shares its circuit board with other brands of SSD, like My Digital BPX Pro, with very similar Crystal Disk test results. Some of the others without the heat sink night cost less. I think the heat sink on this SSD is unnecessary gingerbread, but if you like what you see, get it!

Cons: I own this product but I did not buy it from Newegg. I gave it a one star rating because I could not get a straight answer from Patriot Support regarding the heat sink and it's lack of contact with all of the chips on the circuit board. I have no issue with how it tests or functions.

When I examined it and held it up to a bright light, I saw a gap of several thousandths of an inch between the chip on the circuit board and the heat conductive material that attaches the heat sink to the SSD. My concern was that the heat sink, not being attached to all of the chips, blocks the airflow around the chip that is not in contact with the heat sink and could overheat.

I sent it back to Patriot and they replaced it with what was apparently one that was BRAND NEW. The new one had the same issue, so I talked with them, trying to find out about this issue, which troubled me.

I could not resolve this issue with the Patriot rep who appeared to be not technically competent to understand the issue. All he did was to tell me that the heat sink was necessary and I needed to send photos which, at best, would be difficult to capture and show nothing he couldn't see for himself by looking at the product he should have access to.

Other brands of this M.2 SSD with the Phison E12 controller use the same circuit board and probably, use the same chips on that board, and might even be made on the same production line. Those drives do not have a heat sink blocking the airflow around the center chip, and apparently they don't need it because they do not have an issue with running hot. These drives, including the Patriot drive, all have chips on the reverse side of the board, that are cooled only with airflow - no heat sinks here - there's no room for them.

The response I got was that just because these other SSD's shared a common circuit board the chips were different (which I doubt). I was told the heat sink is necessary on the Patriot for safe operation. If that is true, I'd want a drive that doesn't have an overheating issue or needs a heat sink. If most other SSD's function properly without a heat sink, why then does Patriot need a heat sink for proper function?

Being an engineer, I think the heat sink on these SSD's is unnecessary gingerbread, and most of the manufacturers know this., because most of these SSD's don't have added heat sinks. I would prefer to have all of the chips properly air cooled, than have one chip that may not be cooled properly.

Other brands of M.2 SSD (essentially the same SSD most likely using the same circuit board and chips) do not have a heat sink. When I told them I did not want to void my warranty by removing the heat sink, they told me it was necessary.

For my money I will stick with the other, similar SSD's with the Phison E12 controller that do not need a heat sink to go with their five year warranties (the Patriot SSD only has a three year warranty).

Additionally, that heat sink prevents an SSD from fitting inside an external NVMe M.2 SSD enclosure, which makes a M.2 SSD portable.

When I talked with Patriot they insisted upon a photo of the problem, and that is where the discussion ended. I asked them to look at the ones they have there, which was not good enough for them. They still wanted the photos.

I asked to speak with a technically competent person and was refused.

Overall Review: I did not appreciate the way Patriot Product Support dismissed me and insisted on a photo of the separated heat sink.

All of these SSD's with the Phison E12 controller are fast, and will have about the same performance. Whichever one you get you should be very happy with. Bear in mind these NVMe drives are not supported in Windows 7 and Microsoft no longer supplies a NVMe generic driver for NVMe SSD's, although there may be a workaround out there.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Jim,

Thank you for your concise description of the issue in this review. When our representative contacted you, there was a disconnect between the two parties that made it difficult to precisely understand what the issue you were having was. We looked at your return and did see a looseness that existed. After checking our stock, we did not see the issue present. We would still like to correct the issue that your replacement has.

You can contact us via email at support@patriotmem.com or via phone at 800-800-9600, option 2. We look forward to resolving your issue.

Regards,
Patriot Memory Technical Support

Excellent!

Pros: - Surprisingly fast

- Heat sink very efficient

- Nice look

Cons: None.

Overall Review: One thing people should know about it: if you are afraid it wouldn't fit under a big GPU, I can tell you it will since I have a large one and there is still room left between my RX 570 and this drive. Final verdict, go for it!

Simply Amazing

Pros: The first thing that you should notice about this drive is it's speed. My actual measurements using ATTO resulted in a read speed of 3,230 and a write speed of 2,850 (not quite as high as published, but real close). Next on the list would be price which is considerably less than units with comparable speed. And last would be temperature and looks. The fact that this drive comes with a heat sink is a bonus. When I was copying lots and lots of files to the drive the temperature I measured was 36 degrees Celsius. It would be my opinion that the heat sink would keep this drive from getting too hot and throttling it's speed. Lastly it looks nice.

Cons: There are a couple of things that need mentioning. First would be the height of the drive. The heatsink adds about 1/2 inch to the drives height. That would be a problem on some motherboards where the GPU sits directly above the M.2 slot. Second, the drive does not come with any software. You have to go to the Patriot website to locate their SSD utility software, but you will have trouble finding it because it is listed in their downloads as firmware. I always make sure that I always have the latest firmware installed so I downloaded it. If I hadn't I probably wouldn't have found the software either.

Overall Review: I am very pleased with this drive and will certainly buy more of their products. If you are looking for a cool drive that is sleek looking and super fast at a very reasonable price look no further. I am quite confident that you will be pleased with this drive.
