looking for a way to cap ssd speed .

 Share

i bought a kingspec 2422 m.2 ssd from aliexpress for my laptop to use just as a boot drive and i want to keep all the important data on my hdd . and this ssd is known to overheat and kill itself , is there any way to limit the speed and throttle it down ? and will that even prevent overheating ?  i couldn't find any related topics since the search is bloated with ssd speed up guides  .

 

*i know linus did a video on this brand calling it garbage and i know spending a bit more and getting a good ssd is better but i don't have the budget for that and i need a small m.2 2422 256gb ssd because i still need my hdd slot and also there are almost no other ssd s on aliexpress that size and i cannot buy from the us websites (newegg amazon ...) because i live too far .

how about you monitor temps and see for yourself?

 

If it's not getting above 80 celsius and still dies early, you know that reducing the speed would have done nothing.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

You could probably slap one of those self-adhesive heatsinks onto the controller and call it a day.

I have one of those in my Thinkpad (couldn't argue with 1tb of SSD storage for £40), but I'm not quite brave enough to use it as my boot drive.
