MSI teases its new M.2 Shield SSD heatspreader

MSI is no stranger to cooling technology, with the company announcing it has added a heatspreader to the M.2 slot on future - and I'm guessing, Z270 motherboards - as M.2 drives have been running very hot in some PCs.

MSI will unveil the new M.2 Shield cooler with its next-gen motherboards that will support Intel's upcoming Kaby Lake CPU architecture, led by the Core i7-7700K - which seems to be running into its own temperature-related problems. MSI's upcoming M.2 Shield SSD heatspreader is a metal cover with a pre-applied thermally-conductive gap-filling pad.

 

It won't matter which M.2 SSD you have, MSI's new M.2 Shield will fit onto it as it is hinged at the bottom, clamping down onto the M.2 drive as it's the larger surface - meaning it can take more heat from the NAND flash.

 

MSI should better unveil the M.2 Shield at CES 2017 in January, 2017.
