DIY Parts     TP01-M2

■ Efficient heat conduction pad for reducing temperature

■ Supports M.2 SSD up to 110mm in length

■ Safe and easy to use

         With the ever increasing popularity of solid state drive (SSD) being used as the primary storage device in PCs, capacity and performance continue to climb in newer models but so have their operating temperatures. This has resulted in situations where SSDs, especially the smaller M.2 variants with less surface areas have overheated and throttled or shut down completely. To help alleviate this new generation of heat problems, SilverStone created the TP01-M2 thermal pad, a simple and effective cooling solution for M.2 SSDs. It has excellent thermal conductivity, is electrically non-conductive, and easy to apply. It is designed to fit between M.2 SSD and M.2 adapter card so it can transfer heat away from SSD to the larger adapter card surface for more effective heat dissipation.

Test Environment

Before (no thermal pad): 86 deg. Celsius (186.8 deg. Fahrenheit)
After (with thermal pad): 71.4 deg. Celsius (160.52 deg. Fahrenheit)

Remark :
* This product can only be used in M.2 adapter card / motherboard with connector height of less than 4mm
** Includes two thermal pads with different thickness. For single sided M.2 SSD (flat back without component), please use 1.5mm pad; for double sided M.2 SSD (both sides with components), please use 0.5mm pad
*** If one pad is not thick enough in making contact with both M.2 SSD and your motherboard or adapter card, then you should carefully attach both included pads in your TP01-M2 kit together (make sure to avoid trapping air bubbles between them). Your goal is to create enough thickness to enable solid contacts so the heat from M.2 SSD can be transferred through to the motherboard or adapter card
