*To keep AORUS Gen5 12000 SSD from overheating, please adopt the motherboard build-in heatsink or Thermal Guard Xtreme heatsink to prevent throttling.
Why is keeping an SSDs at lower temperatures so important?
Higher working temperature may cause data loss. The degradation factor of data loss could be a hundred times higher. Compared with regular plated heat spreader, the M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME improves thermal dissipation to keep the highest Seq. read performance. With M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME, the SSD can operate at lower working temperatures to improve data storage reliability. Enjoy smoother & upgraded storage performance any time by utilizing M.2 Thermal Guard XTREME.
