Jonsbo blog: let’s cool that drive!

High-performance NVMe SSDs easily overheat, which is then damaged over their lifespan.

It only took a year or two, and 2.5 ”SSDs in home PCs were almost completely replaced by versions with an M.2 connector that used the NVMe interface. They take up less space, are much faster – so you can only rejoice in the change. The small size and higher speed, on the other hand, results in stronger heating, which can definitely be detrimental; on the one hand, because the data transfer rate may decrease (although this is less noticeable) with a longer load, and on the other hand, the service life may be shortened.

It is no coincidence that on the right motherboards at least one, but rather more M.2 sockets already come with their own heat sinks, but these are not always powerful enough, so many companies are involved in the production of retrofit ribs. Among them is Jonsbo, which has already gained a lot of experience in the field of processor coolers.

Jonsbo basically works with four designs, which are sometimes available in a variety of colors. The simplest is 17.4 mm high M.2 Grey a refrigerator made of restraint and, due to its upper, wide plate, even almost melts into its surroundings. The rib itself comes with a separate frame and a multi-thickness thermal insert, so it can be mounted seamlessly on most SSDs.

Not to be forgotten is the one who thinks in an illuminated interior: the M.2-2 family was made for them. There are two versions of it M.2-2 ARGB and that M.2-2 Color also shows the difference between them: the former is controllable, the latter is given simple color lighting. They are easier to fasten than the previous version, as the M.2 socket is twisted to ensure that they are tightened. These models are slightly taller than the M.2 Gray, giving them 19.3mm of space.

Not everything is lost anyway, if for some reason there is not so much space above the M.2 socket: the M.2-4 it also offers RGB lights, but is only 17.6mm high. Its mounting is framed, so it doesn’t just rely on the M.2 socket, so it cools the SSD from below and above, so it can be a better choice for double-sided models.

M.2-3 - here in gray

Last but not least, the fourth version is M.2-3, which is red obsession gray Available in color. Like the M.2-4, the mounting is framed here, but with the corrugated top plate it is only 9.6 mm high, so it fits almost anywhere. In return, however, you have to give up on colored lights – something for something.
