i vividly remember gamers nexus and jays2cents and some other youtuber specifically saying that the nand likes cold, but controller likes heat (or vice versa i dont remember).

One simple rule out of the physics book... SEMICONDUCTORS LOVE BEING COOL. okay?

I've ordered one a few days ago from aliexpress, I have samsung 950 and it is known to get toasty, I also need it for the tube run. Probbably a copper/aluminium heatsink will work just as well but why not?

It is not for htpc, it is for full size build (x58 untill this waterblock arrives)

well you're not going to get that using water, i guarantee you that... you want 100% silence? use solid state solutions. 

weird.... as my pc is on my desk, i can reach into it, i can't hear it. Am I going deaf? I really don't understand why people believe that watercooling can't be silent without being pedantic about it, it has fans and moving parts it must make noise right? Well sure but then there is also ambient noise, if my pc outputs a lower dB than my environment then to me it's going to be silent. My pump is rubber mounted and on the lowest setting, my fans are on the lowest speed and i have massive rads to allow for this you see? I can hear the buzzing from my tv screen over my pc. Hope that helps. Also have you seen ant's vid about his pc?

I was gonna buy one and try it. But can’t even get windows installed on it. 

And would throw off the look of my loop which has been the only decent once I’ve made.

It is possible to install the thermal pad ontop of the controller and double sided tape on top of the flash, this way you kill two birds with one shot)

So in short, you DON'T NEED TO WATERCOOL IT. Just ensure a good airflow over it.

You don’t “need” to water cooler anything if that’s the case. Doesn’t mean you shouldn’t.

you shout *NOT* cool NAND flash. but its hard to cool only the controller. only *SOME* waterbocks cover only the controller. make sure you buy the right one.

Don't think there are many options. Like I said, didn't look into it too much. I cant use mine so I dropped the idea.

I think this topic has new meaning now that gen4 PCIe had come out. I am thinking of doing the same thing to my 4 Corsair m.2 4.0's, because, even with that massive heatsink on them, they still get red hot. Plus I think it will just look plain sexy

Someone saying cooling components shortens there life seems fishy but they must mean low temperatures (and lets point out he said likes warm not hot) could reduce rewrites we also know they definitely DO throttle at high temps. Yet to be seen how relevant this is with the pci-e 4.0 stuff which seem to consume more power they certainly have some large heatsinks lol. You can get the sabrent 2tb one without a heatsink for $430 add a waterblock and your still less $ then a 2tb samsung evo plus why not

Looks like Barrow new about pci-e 4.0 ssd’s before they were released and made a cooling solution

ps there was no space for the m.2 waterblock on my full size build, Thus I decided to use it on htpc059E4A5B-7DFD-453C-80A0-E99EDEAD3F06.thumb.jpeg.59c2f1f4f78ca045e1e0345c16998ed2.jpeg

it is asus z390i with z270/370i waterblock
