Alphacool Introduces Eisfluegel Aurora Flow-sensor and HDX Pro Air M.2 SSD cooler

Alphacool presents the HDX Pro Air cooler for M.2 2280 SSDs. M.2 SSDs are enjoying increasing popularity. The extremely fast read and write processes ensure a noticeably faster working performance than normal mechanical hard drives and even standard SSDs can offer. However, the controller chip quickly becomes very warm and after about 60 seconds of continuous load, many M.2 SSDs start to overheat, which leads to a massive performance drop. This is prevented with the Alphacool HDX Pro Air M.2 SSD cooler. The solid aluminium cooler fits on single- and double-sided M.2 SSDs. Despite the larger heat sink, the cooler fits on M.2 slots underneath a graphics card without colliding with them.

Now available, the new Alphacool Aurora Eisfluegel high flow flow sensor. The small compact flow sensor is equipped with 8 addressable digital RGB LEDs for optimal illumination. The speed of the Eisfluegel flow sensor is read out via a normal 3 or 4-pin fan connector. With the help of monitoring software can determine the exact flow rate. With the Eisfluegel Aurora flow sensor a flow rate between 70 and 300 L/h can be determined. The Eisfluegel Aurora can either be mounted with M3 screws or mounted at any position in the case with the included Velcro mat. Alternatively, Eisfluegel is so light that it can be mounted freely suspended between two hoses or HardTubes.

Seriously, when will they learn? Solid alloy chunks are sh*t...

The air cooler looks nice, but I have to question thier potential effectiveness....

I already have EK sinks on my m.2's, and they actually work, reducing temps by ~5-8c, so I would be interested to see some actual testing results for these :)

I've always thought those huge, obtuse, radial/paddle wheel flow indicators were always ugly. The only one's that aren't are the very low profile, helical flow indicators

$1 Raspberry Pi heatsinks make better M2 coolers than most "proper" $15-25 M2 coolers. Most of the "enthusiast modding" industry is just churning out vanity junk.

That looks neat... does have have a wire for reporting the RPM? Brand/Model?
