Water Cooling M.2 Drive - Benefits?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I got a waterblock for my M.2, are there any benefits to watercooling it and having it at lower temperatures. Is it possible to overclock it with the additional temperature below thermal throttle poitn?

You can't overclock it.

 

It might help lower thermal throttling, but a heatsink will do this aswell, and this is a non issue with most desktop workloads.

 

There is a argument for letting nand run a bit warmer as it doesn' t like to be super cold.

Nope, its a bit murky with M.2.s anyway as you really only want to cool the controller, the NAND chips actually prefer it warm,

But I'll be ok right, because I can't go below ambient temperature of the room I'm in? If I have a M.2 stored at room temperature outside of my case without damaging it, I assume I'll be fine watercooling it inside my system running at a temperature greater than room temperature?

Do it. Better to be a baller than a pleb.
