Announced this June, the T-Force Cardea Ceramic C440 is an M.2 NVMe SSD that takes advantage of PCI-Express 4.0 x4 host interface - perfect for a cutting edge build based on 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen or upcoming Intel processors.

We are not sharing any of this info with them, only the winning name and email

In theory we could ask for "first name" (so we can announce the winning name) and "email" ? How do other giveaways like that work?

Also thoughts on cheaters signing up multiple times with random names?

My bad, did not realize that it was hosted by TPU it self, how ever why not just the user name in the forum ?.

Don't allow new members to be able vote maybe ?, or at least x amount of posts made at least.

And can i not sign up with multiple names this way with multiple email addresses as most have more than one anyways.

Maybe forum account, or email verification should help with increasing effort for cheating.

So one of the questions on the giveaway page is "How thick this is the C440's heatsink? " ( 'this' is not a typo ). I've looked around for information on the thickness, I cant seem to find any.

EDIT: The product page has it but its not under specifications...

A second of looking at the actual product shows how thin the heatsink is in comparison to the PCB, those that are familiar with this style of drive (and metric) would know it could only be one.

So what's so special about the heat spreader of this Team Group T-Force Cardea Ceramic C440 1TB M.2 PCIe Gen.4x4 SSD?
Ceramic, white, thin. How thin? Well, it's in the name for this capacity... :roll:

The problem is, in my PC the M.2 PCIe slot is limited to Gen.3 and it disables the 2nd x16 slot. Also the build I have is pure black&white and I don't want to ruin it with a red/green/blue PCB so I guess I'll think about it. :D
