It’s an SSD… that is water cooled. Why? Well the answer is a lot more interesting than we originally thought. Buy Corsair MP600 PRO Hydro X Edition 2TB NVMe …

  1. Additional info for nerds about 2:20 courtesy of Nystemy on the forum:

    "Coming in really quickly here to inform why there is differences between keeping the Flash warm or cool.

    When one writes to a Flash memory cell, then the device creates a fairly intense electric field across the insulation surrounding the floating gate making up the cell. This forces some electrons to get trapped in or ripped out of the floating cell (depending on what the manufacturer thinks is better, both technically works.) But each time this is done, it adds a bit of damage to the insulation, making it less good at stopping current from flowing through it.

    The Flash cell is in effect just a fancy low leakage capacitor. And the faster the charge leaks out from it, the faster it forgets. (And for DLC ("MLC"), TLC, and QLC cells, it forgets even faster due to the smaller charge differences it has to deal with from the get go.)

    But how does operating temperature play a part in this?

    Well, the insulation simply has higher leakage when warm, and doesn't need to break down as hard when that current is forced through it.

    But likewise, the warm temperature has the deficit that the insulation also leaks more current, so the cells forgets faster.

    In short.

    If you want to put the drive on a shelf for 10 years, then keep it cool.

    If you want to use it as a scratch disk for a storage/computing server, then keep it warm.

    And if you use it as something in-between these two extremes, then it is a bit more of a mix…"

    Anyway, have a good day and the LTT Forum is awesome -Alex

  2. You should have tested it in a water-cooled system to test it in the main use case. It might be interesting to see if water-cooling the SSD matters when the system components right next to it are producing less heat

  3. I'm a little confused. At 11:18 Linus says is was writting at 2GBs for about an hour but then only wrote 22.8GB. I was like well thats not impressive at all… but then I think he mixed the comma for a decimal point and it actually looks like 22769GB which still doesn't add up as it would have to write at 6GBs for the hour.

  4. Come to think of it…
    My monitor gets pretty hot sometimes….
    I think Corsair should make water cooling kits for monitors.
    That way we can take 60hz panels and clock them to 240 😁👌
