I get that some M.2 drives will thermal throttle, but dang really? I totally get water cooling the GPU, CPU, and the areas around the CPU, but the RAM, PSU, and now the M.2??? This is getting weird.

It's not an M.2 drive, rather a PCIe card.

That said, with having an endurance rating of 10 DWPD, you'd have to be performing some serious video editing to find a need to cool off this puppy. I just don't see burst writing being enough to heat-soak an aluminum heat spreader. This is a water cooling solution looking for a problem that doesn't exist.

an optane drive would consume somewhere between 10-20 Watts of power , the normal stock heat spreader is more than enough for this kind of TDP , there also a M.2 water cooling block but it is as useful as this block
but foe people with M.2 that do suffer from thermal throttling (almost every Nvme M.2 drive out there) few companies sell heat-sink that you can put on which will solve the thermal throttling issues.
