Good aesthetics is an important aspect in most PC builds be it an entry-level or an enthusiast-level PC with high-end hardware and custom liquid cooling. Today, EKWB introduces the EK-M.2 NVMe Heatsink for M.2 NVMe solid state drives which are a staple for high-performance PCs. M.2 NVMe SSDs tend to produce a significant amount of heat on heavy workloads making it vulnerable to thermal throttling that results to performance loss. Most offerings like the Intel Optane M.2 NVMe SSDs only have the bare PCB. The EK-M.2 NVMe Heatsink offering an 8° to 11° Celsius improvement on the SSD’s temperatures.

The EK-M.2 NVMe Heatsink is an easy-to-install low-profile and reusable heat sink that’s compatible to any single-sided 2280 form factor M.2 SSD. The ribbed heatsink offer efficient passive cooling as well as to provide aesthetics. Its compact design ensures the addition of the heatsink to the M.2 SSD will not interfere with other components except for motherboards with built-in M.2 heatsinks.
