Team Group reveals their T-Force Cardea Liquid series of M.2 SSDs - Just Add Water

Team Group has announced what they call the "world's first water cooled M.2 solid-state drive", an SSD which users are to fill with coloured coolant to deliver cooler operating temperatures and some flashy colour options. 

No, this SSD isn't designed to be integrated into your custom water cooling loop, the Team Group T-Force Cardia Liquid is designed to match your water cooling loop. The coolant which users add to their systems is not flowing to an external radiator, it stays in place, adding matching coolant colours to your existing water cooling loop. 

The T-Force Cardea Liquid shipped pre-filled with blue coolant, but users are allowed to adjust and refill the SSD as needed, changing the coolant's colour to batter match their system.  Under the hood lies up to 1TB of SSD storage and up to 3,400MB/s read speeds and 3,000MB/s write speeds. Below are the specifications of each of the Cardia Liquid SSDs SKUs offers. 

- 1TB: 3,400MB/s read, 3,000MB/s write (Expected MSRP $149.99)
- 512GB: 3,400MB/s read, 2,000MB/s write (Expected MSRP $89.99)
- 256GB: 3000MB/s read, 1,000MB/s write


Team Group will ship their T-Force Cardia Liquid SSDs with a three-year warranty. The video below showcases the SSD's liquid cooling features, promising that their SSD is 10 degrees cooler without stating what their thermal data should be compared to.

My main concern here is the lack of heat dissipation since it has no fins or connection to a radiator. Granted the coolant will run cooler than just under air alone to begin with; but over time I think it will fall foul as the liquid heats up depending on the drive's usage.Quote

I mean at that point I would probably just want a dedicated water block in a loop if i wanted to go that far. Though pretty sure there are no companies doing that.Quote

It might be interesting to see how this compares to a standard clamp-on heatsink, but it doesn't tickle me much either.Quote

Do stick on heatsinks really improve performance that much on these drives?

Mine is watercooled via the CPU waterblock. I tested it once with and without the cooling block and saw 0 improvement.

Maybe not the most analytical of tests but 1 day of temps and speed performance tests with the waterblock, and then 1 day without. No difference :S

Unless perhaps having a complete custom loop in the case helps keep dumped heat outside the case helped performance anyway?Quote

I must have my science on backwards.
Surely this will insulate instead of dissipating no?Quote
