be quiet! Lauches MC1 Cooler for PlayStation 5 M.2 SSDs

be quiet!, the German manufacturer for premium PC components, is proud to announce that its MC1 M.2 SSD cooler is a perfect match for the brand-new PlayStation 5 SSD expansion capabilities.

For those running out of storage space on the built-in solid-state drive of the PlayStation 5, Sony has recently released a firmware update that unlocks the M.2 SSD expansion slot, allowing users to add an additional solid-state drive to the console. These drives can run very hot, which could cause SSD throttling, prompting Sony to recommend only using M.2 SSDs with a heatsink. be quiet! offers gamers the ideal solution with its MC1 cooler, which is compatible with any single-sided or double-sided 2280 M.2 SSD that does not feature a built-in heatsink. It is also one of the only M.2 SSD coolers on the market compact enough to perfectly fit inside the expansion slot of the PlayStation 5 and able to cool double-sided SSDs, protecting the memory modules on both sides of the PCB from overheating. The result is much lower and safer SSD temperatures, which translates into trouble-free gaming sessions and an increased lifespan of the drive.

SSD and cooler installation specifics
The PlayStation 5 supports 22 mm PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 NVMe SSDs with a capacity between 250 GB and 4 TB. be quiet! has prepared a handy video tutorial on how to install an M.2 SSD in the console. Please note that only the be quiet! MC1 SSD cooler is recommended for use in a PlayStation 5; the MC1 Pro with an additional built-in heat sink has a higher cooling capacity, but is taller than the dimensions specified by Sony. Please take into account that you need the PlayStation 5 system software update from 15.09.2021 to enable expansion with an M.2 SSD.
