Graugear launch G-PS5HS01-Cov cooler specifically for PlayStation 5

German cooling manufacturer Graugear recently launched an M.2 cooler designed for the Sony PlayStation 5 game console, with the model number G-PS5HS01-Cov. When used with the PlayStation 5’s cooling fan, it can achieve active cooling.

According to TechPowerup, this is a very interesting M.2 cooler that weighs 70 grams. Unlike other similar products, it uses a combination of the aluminum heat sink, heat sink fins, and a 7mm heat pipe to transfer the heat from the aluminum heat sink on the M.2 SSD to the heat sink fins located at the position of the PlayStation 5 fan using the heat pipe, achieving active cooling. Graugear said that this design can maximize the use of the space above the M.2 slot on the PlayStation 5 game console, increase the cooling efficiency by 50%, and reduce the temperature of the M.2 SSD by 15°C to 25°C.

Many game players have a need for expanding storage on the PlayStation 5 game console, and Sony also has regulations for the expansion use of the M.2 slot. According to Sony’s requirements, it must support PCIe 4.0 x4, have a capacity between 250GB and 4TB, and a read speed of at least 5500 MB/s. In order to ensure the stability of the work, the M.2 SSD also needs to be equipped with a heat sink, and the heat sink also has specifications requirements: the length is up to 110mm, the width does not exceed 25mm, and the thickness is up to 11.25mm. M.2 SSD models available in the market that claim to support the PlayStation 5 game console are equipped with compliant passive heat dissipation modules.

Graugear’s G-PS5HS01-Cov M.2 SSD cooler is currently on the market in Germany for €29.9.
