The Thermal Grizzly M.2 SSD Cooler is a passive cooling solution for next generation form factor SSDs. It's no secret that modern M.2 NVMe SSDs, in particular, get hot when in demanding use, so the speed of the drive has to be slowed down. To counteract this problem and get full performance, the Grizzly professionals have developed a compact passive cooler that significantly reduces the temperatures of an M.2 SSD. The sophisticated design of the cooler consists of a front cover and a backplate as well as two matching Minus Pad 8 high performance thermal pads. Note that the Thermal Grizzly M.2 SSD Cooler is only compatible with one-sided, 22-millimeter-long M.2 NVMe SSDs that are 80 millimeters long, and that M.2 (NGFF) connectors with a height of 4.2 millimeters must be used.
