EK co-develops a heatsink for the Intel Optane 905P M.2 SSD
EK® Water Blocks, the premium computer cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing a passive heatsink for the M.2 version of the Intel® Optane™ 905P NVMe SSD. The passive heatsink ensures lower operating temperatures which expands the lifespan and improves the sustained performance of the drive. It ensures that the Intel® Optane™ 905P NVMe SSD operates at its maximum possible performance by preventing thermal throttling during heavy workload cycles.
The 905P Intel® Optane™ Drive uses around 9.35W of power under load, which is challenging to dissipate without a dedicated cooling solution like the EK-M.2 Heatsink. The cooling performance of this solution by EK is achieved via thermal pads that transfer heat to the aluminum heatsink that is finned for a larger dissipation area. The design of the heatsink ensures that it is easy to install, it is low profile, easily reusable and aesthetically not intrusive.
The EK-M.2 Heatsink for the Intel® Optane™ SSD 905P is compatible with 22110 M.2 Optane™ SSDs (22mm wide, 110mm long). The motherboard will also need to ensure proper power delivery is routed to the M.2 connector for full performance. Support for 22x110mm M.2 SSD drives should be clearly stated in your motherboard manual.
