World’s first water cooling M.2 solid state drive

World’s first water cooling M.2 solid state drive

The water cooling M.2 SSD module has patented design of TEAMGROUP (Taiwan Utility Model Patent No. M574264). After the laboratory’s rigorous testing and burn-in tests, by using the self-circulation cooling effect, this product is proven it can effectively lower the temperature down about 10 degrees[2] to avoid crashes due to overheating, and maintain a stable, high-speed performance. Gamers can enjoy the gaming experience at any time.

The only patented water cooling design in the world

The concept is to transfer the heat source of the M.2 solid state drive to the aluminum alloy heat sink through the silicone thermal conductive pad and using the water-cooling liquid to lower the temperature quickly. Then, to further lower the temperature, the heat of the water cooling M.2 SSD module can be transferred with convection produced by the computer case fans.

Crystal-clear structure – the perfect combination of craftsmanship and fashion

Crystal-clear structure – the perfect combination of craftsmanship and fashion

The water-cooling module has a crystal-clear design with T-FORCE LOGO’s metal trim and the sliding rail design. On the inside, it has high quality, environmentally friendly water-cooling liquid. In addition, considering that gamers will adjust and refill the water-cooling liquid[4] by themselves, there is a translucent scale on the left side of the product to allow gamers to accurately adjust the ratio between the liquid and the air. This ensures excellent cooling efficiency.

Superior performance

It supports the latest NVMe1.3 protocol. Intelligent SLC Caching and DRAM Cache Buffer are built-in. With superior performance, the sequential read/write speed is up to 3,400/3,000 MB/s[1], and random read/write speed is up to 180K/160K* IOPS. It offers the smoothest high-speed experience.

Superior performance
Smart management – high reliability

Smart management – high reliability

It supports the S.M.A.R.T function and its built-in smart algorithm management mechanism has functions such as GC (garbage collection) and TRIM command. The powerful Wear-Leveling technology and ECC (Error Correction Code) function can ensure data security and transfer stability.

T-FORCE

T-FORCE

T-FORCE is TEAM force. The red “T” on the logo of “TF” represents TEAMGROUP’s passion for the storage products. The black “F” represents TEAMGROUP’s over 18 years of promotion of storage products. The visual design of the perfect combination elegantly symbolizes a pair of flying wings. They represent that the high quality and extreme performance gaming products from TEAMGROUP are capable of allowing all gamers to break the speed limit and enjoy the ever-changing world of gaming.

PRECAUTIONS
[1] Transmission speed will vary according to different hardware/software conditions, therefore the data can only used for basic reference.
[2] Internal laboratory test result is for reference only and is based on TEAMGROUP's own M.2 PCIe solid state drive which has no cooling device and CARDEA Liquid water cooling M.2 solid state drive.
[3] Removing the heat sink may result in functional damage and loss of product warranty!
[4] Please use the special water-cooling liquid provided by TEAMGROUP . Do not use tap water or distilled water as water-cooling liquid, otherwise it will affect the water cooling system and reduce cooling efficiency.
[5] Please turn off CARDEA Liquid power when refilling the water-cooling liquid. Do not change the water-cooling liquid directly while power is on, which may cause damage to the equipment!
[6] 1GB=1,000,000,000 Bytes. In OS system, it would be displayed as 1,000,000,000 Bytes/1024/1024/1024 = 0.93GB
[7] Definition and conditions of TBW (Terabytes Written)are based on JEDEC standard
[8] PCIe SSD works best under WIN8.1 and WIN10 operating system. Windows Operating Systems earlier than Windows 8.1 does not support NVMe Driver natively. Users will need to install NVMe Driver prior installing the SSD.
