Sabrent PS5 Designed SSD Heatsink SB-PHHS Now Available to Buy
Good news for anyone who is considering buying an SSD for their PS5 Storage expansion upgrade (currently in Beta, with the full release coming soon) with the reveal of the new PS5 designed SSD heatsink from Sabrent. For those that are not aware, the PS5 supports m.2 NVMe SSDs in its available expansion bay, however, these SSDs can get remarkably hot when in full use (as all NVMe SSDs are prone to – due to their remarkably high performance and throughput). In order to counter this, the PS5 like most gaming systems that support m.2 NVMe SSDs provide an area of space around the drive to attach a heatsink – a metallic block that is attached to the SSD that draws the heat away from the SSD and its chips, then dissipating that heat into the surrounding air. Heatsinks are generally available to buy from between $10-25 depending on build quality and indeed some SSDs arrive with a heatsink already attached. However, the bigger heatsinks are generally the most effective at dissipating heat, which is a shame given that the PS5 SSD expansion bay has a metal cover, limiting space for larger heatsinks. Many are debating whether it is better or worse when the SSD is contained inside a closed slot, as well as using heatsinks that are designed for PC environments in a PS5 hardware environment. The Sabrent SB-PHHS heatsink aims to counter this issue by being the first PS5 compatible heatsink that covers the SSD, whilst maximizing the available space in the SSD expansion slot.
What Makes the Sabrent SB-PHHS PS5 Heatsink Different to Other Heatsinks?
The main difference of course between the Sabrent PS5 heatsink and others is that this is the very first PS5 heatsink that is designed precisely around the available cavity in your PS5 for SSD drives. With grooves across the whole drive to facilitate airflow over the SSD and thermal pads included coating the full length of the SSD inside. Here is how the heatsink looks:
Here is how the Sabrent PS5 Heatsink fits and looks inside the PS5, as well as how it compares with a regular generic heatsink AND the original Sabrent ‘phat’ Heatsink:
|Eluteng NGFF NVME Heatsink – $13.99
|Sabrent SSD Rocket Heatsink SB-HTSK – $24.99
Sabrent SB-PHHS PS5 Heatsink – $19.99 (TBC)
So, as you can see, the heatsink is designed SPECIFICALLY for the PS5 m.2 SSD storage bay.
