TechPowerUp (PR) GELID Announces Glint ARGB M.2 SSD Cooler

Tech innovator GELID Solutions unveils the latest cooling kit for the M.2 Type 2280 Solid State Drives. The GLINT is a product of GELID Solutions GAMER product line. The GLINT is crafted to cool your M.2 SSD efficiently and boost drive performance. It helps maintain temperatures within the normal range under any workload or usage scenario, enhances data integrity and prevents thermal throttling from activation. The GLINT uses the slim aluminium heatsink and the specially crafted thermal pads to improve cooling and maintain significantly lowered operating temperatures for memory ICs and other electronic components of the M.2 Type SSD.

The heatsink is also secured by the bottom cover and 4 mounting screws for safe handling and better heat dissipation. Additionally, the GLINT is complemented by the ARGB Module boasting 5 ultra-bright LEDs and supporting all major motherboards: ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI or ASRock. You can easily create and sync vivid lighting effects via your favorite RGB software or program the LEDs via an external ARGB controller. The GLINT features quick installation and fits all standard M.2 Type 2280 SSD in desktop applications.

Ironically, the LEDs probably generate as much heat as the SSD while sacrificing cooling capacity....but oh, well, RGB?

I said it many times before and reiterate here that if RGB has a function that can change the colour according to the temp of the SSD instead of just meaningless flashing, then it serves a practical purpose and might be around longer. A fad just does not survive long.
