Product information: kryoM.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 adapter for M.2 NGFF PCIe SSD, M-Key with passive heatsink

The kryoM.2 is a PCIe 4x adapter for M.2/M-Key NGFF PCIe SSD and is compatible with the form factors 2280, 2260 and 2242.
The adapter uses a multilayer PCB with gold surface where the individual layers are connected to each other to optimize the thermal management. The SSD is installed with a thermal pad which already allows a better cooling over regular adapters. The passive heat sink covers the front side of the SSD with a second thermal pad and ensures maximum performance of high speed SSDs.

To ensure a good quality and reliability the connector for the M.2 SSD comes from Amphenol, the PCIe contacts are plated with hard gold and the circuit paths are impedance controlled.



Specification:
- Dimensions: 126 x 84 x 20 mm incl. bracket
- Compatibility: 2280, 2260 and 2242.



Contents:
- Adapter board
- Passive heat sink made from aluminum, black anodized
- Mounting material

I bought this so I could try the SM951 NVMe drive in my Z77 motherboard which doesn't have any M.2 slots. This card works perfectly and gives the full speed expected (approx 2200MB/sec read and 1550MB/sec write) in a PCIe 3 slot. It also runs fine in PCIe 2 x16 slot but maxes out around 1400MB/sec.

The Lycom DT-120 does the same thing for £15 cheaper but having seem how hot the SM951 can get under heavy load I feel happier knowing it's under a heatsink which should if noting else give the drive a less stressful life.

I gave it 9 out of 10 as the instructions could be better. Despite being a fairly simple part it came with what seems to be an extra screw plus 2 plastic nuts that I couldn't work out what to do with and weren't mentioned in the tiny single page instructions.

Works, 10 degrees C lower

Definitely works, I would recommend not using the end screw if you are using the passive heatsink, instead only use the 4 back screws in such circumstance otherwise you will have too much flex in the m.2 ssd. You can also screw the end screw on the back with the others, it will not do anything other than store it for future use etc.

And mine is nicely running at least 10C lower, should definitely help with any thermal throttling :)
