Teamgroup releases new water-cooled SSD

The M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 solid state drive packs a water shroud that should help reduce temps and keep speeds high, but we don't yet know how much it'll cost.

Water Cooled SSD drive

The T-Force Cardea Liquid is an M.2 PCI-E SSD with a read speed of up to 3400MB/s available in 256GB, 512GB and 1TB sizes. What sets it apart from the crowd however is that the Cardea Liquid has built in water-cooling.

This water cooling system isn’t as substantial as a traditional water block system, or even an All-In-One cooler, but it still fits the definition. Rather than using water to move heat away to be dispersed elsewhere the Cardea Liquid has a casing that can be filled with liquid to act as a cooling shroud. Teamgroup claim this shroud is good for a ten degree reduction in temperature.

The water is added via a hole in the end of the casing that is sealed up by a screw.

The Teamgroup T-Force Cardea Liquid is expected to be available in August. There is no word on prices yet.
