Well, modern M.2 SSDs do get pretty hot, which is starting to affect their sustained performance. And since the GPU is usually directly above, it's easier to cool the SSD with water cooling than with air when your mainboard doesn't have "M.2 heat shields". Also, not everyone feels confident building their own custom loop, so an AiO solution does make sense.I know this is an actual AiO but this is totally overkill.
We can dunk our hardware in some electrically inert fluid. It's too bad that some patent troll has an overreaching patent on the idea and refuses to do anything but sue the pants out of anyone who tries it without paying them monies.I love this trend to everything coming with its own inbuilt AIO. The top GPUs are doing it and performing well. Let’s do everything! I’m dreaming of my rig using AIOs for CPU, GPU, SSD - let’s do the RAM too!
