EK is Releasing More Color Options for M.2 NVMe SSD Heatsinks

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer, is releasing new passive heatsinks for M.2 NVMe Next Generation Form Factor SSDs in multiple color options! The popularity of the existing Black and Nickel plated M.2 NVMe heatsinks clearly indicated the need for more color options, so here they are! It is not a secret that M.2 NVMe SSDs can overheat very easily and be affected by thermal throttling, thus losing performance. The EK-M.2 NVMe Heatsink can lower the SSDs operating temperature by 7 to 30°C.

The design of the heatsink ensures that it is easy to install, it is low profile, easily reusable and aesthetically non-intrusive. Simple clips ensure that the heatsink is very easy to install and to re-use if the SSD is upgraded. The ribbed surface of the heatsink acts as a very effective passive cooler, as well as aesthetic cover. Its simple design ensures a sleek, non-intrusive look that can be easily combined with any aesthetical requirement of the user. The compact design makes it highly compatible so that it does not interfere with other components. EK Water Blocks are offering the new EK-M.2 NVMe Heatsink in red, blue, green and purple variants. The gold variant will be available within two weeks of time.
Compatibility
The EK-M.2 NVMe Heatsink is compatible with all single-sided type 2280 M.2 NVMe SSDs (22 mm wide, 80 mm long). Because the heatsink consists of a front and backplate as well, the compatibility is limited to M.2 (NGFF) connectors of 4.2 mm height.

Have been using EKWB´s nickel heatsink for my 960 EVO for some time now - aesthetically pleasing and keeps the drive temp down

Great little heatsink - looks sexy as hell too. Ran before and after numbers with it on my 960 pro a while back - very functional if your case has decent airflow.

Not sure if I'd personally go with anything other than black or silver. But it's nice for people to have options for their builds. I definitely can see someone trying to match their color scheme a bit better. Funny enough though, especially considering the EK logo, they're missing ORANGE, which is at least more common in builds than purple.

Wow those look really nice, and seems that most feel they make a worthwhile difference in temps. I just grabbed a couple to deliver this weekend. I have the original Samsung 941, and a 950 that both definitely get warmer than I would like. Thanks for posting those!
