DIY Parts     TP02-M2

■ Aluminum alloy heatsink increases M.2 SSD cooling area

■ Efficient heat conduction pad for reducing temperature

■ Double layer design enhances SSD cooling for stability and efficiency

■ Supports 2280 length M.2 SSD

■ Easy to apply and affix with silicone bands without damaging M.2 SSD

         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 TP02-M2 cooling kit, it includes quality aluminum heatsink and custom high efficiency thermal pads to provide a simple and effective cooling solution for M.2 SSDs.

Temperature Comparison of 200GB Data Transfer

Without TP02-M2, transfer time takes 240 seconds

With TP02-M2, transfer time takes 180 seconds

Gray Pad 2 : 60mm(W) X 1.5mm(H) X 20mm(D),3.7g
Remark :
* Includes two gray colored thermal pads with different thickness. For single sided M.2 SSD (flat back without component), please use 1.5mm thick pad; for double sided M.2 SSD (both sides with components), please use 1mm thick pad.
** If one gray pad is not thick enough to make contact with both M.2 SSD and your motherboard or adapter card, then you should carefully attach both included pads in your TP02-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
*** If the M .2 slot on the motherboard is situated next to a PCIe slot, the height of the TP02-M2 ‘s heat sink may interfere with graphic card or expansion card installation, we recommended installing TP02-M2 onto other available M.2 slots on the motherboard to avoid interference issue.
