Gelid SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kits

The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kits are designed to help cool M.2 SSDs to prevent them from throttling, this maintains the maximum speed of the M.2 drive even under load.


  1. High Performance Cooling
  2. Lightweight Design
  3. High Reliability Silicone Fixtures
  4. Quick and Easy Mounting
  5. Fits all M.2 Type SSD

The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit is designed to cool down the M.2 Type SSD efficiently and to prevent thermal throttling. It helps to improve performance, to increase durability and to enhance data integrity of the solid-state drives. The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit uses the ultra-slim aluminium heatsink and the specially crafted thermal pads to deliver the best heat transfer and to maintain significantly lower operating temperatures for the memory IC and other electronic components of the M.2 SSD.

Additionally, a set of 3 silicone ring fixtures are supplied with the SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit to ensure safe mounting of the heatsinks and to prevent slip off in case of transportation or mechanical shock. The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit provides quick installation and fits all the standard M.2 type SSD designed for laptops or desktop computer systems.

Thermal Throttling explained:

Thermal Throttling is a technique whereby the frequency of an IC can be automatically adjusted to reduce the amount of heat generated by the IC. Normally, the SSD electronic components operate within the standard temperature range at full speed. But in case of high workloads – such as gaming, video processing or other data-intensive computing – excessive heat can be generated by the SSD controller and memory ICs due to a large amount of read/write operations and high data output.

To cool down the SSD, an automatic duty cycle is applied, the effective SSD frequency becomes lower, and the operating temperature gradually goes back to normal. For this cycle, performance of the SSD degrades until it runs cooler. Some laptops may also have poor cooling inside the M.2 cabinet. In that case, a sequential activation of thermal throttling may occur, resulting in constant underperformance of the M.2 type SSD.

The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit significantly improves cooling of the M.2 type SSD. Therefore, operating temperature of the supported SSD becomes much lower. The SubZero M.2 SSD Cooling Kit helps to maintain temperature within the normal range under high workloads and prevents thermal throttling.

Installation tip

If the M.2 SSD you intend to install this heatsink onto has a label over the memory chips (like the Samsung 960 M.2 SSDs), we highly recommend you remove it as it will have a negative effect on heat transfer.

“Great product, great people..”

“I purchased a NoFan i7 desktop system from Quiet PC a few months ago. I found it really useful to be able to talk to and email the folk at Quiet PC while deciding what system to purchase. The purchase process was easy and the system arrived quickly. Both build quality and performance are excellent. I’ve purchased small components from Quiet PC before but this is the first full system. I will certainly use them again in the future and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
