M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME with Nanocarbon Coating
M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME is made up of two heatpipes and stacked fins with advanced thermal technology Nanocarbon coating for maximum heat dissipation efficiency. Applied with dual side high conductivity thermal pad ensures the heat transferring to the stacked fins. The M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME is the best solution in passive airflow condition when your personal computer adopts CPU AIO water cooler.
Extreme Seq. Read Performance with No Throttling
Compared with regular plated heat spreader, the M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME improves thermal dissipation to keep the highest Seq. read performance with no throttling. AORUS 7000s Gen4 Prem. SSD comes with the best thermal solution in current market, there is no performance compromised, enjoy the smoother & upgraded storage performance any time.
Why is keeping an SSDs at lower temperatures so important?
Higher working temperature may cause data loss. The degradation factor of data loss could be a hundred times higher. With Heat Spreaders, the AORUS Gen4 7000s Prem. SSD can operate at lower working temperatures to improve data storage reliability. Furthermore, SSDs can running at extreme performance without throttling.
