    Additional info for nerds about 2:20 courtesy of Nystemy on the forum: "Coming in really quickly here to inform why there is differences between keeping the Flash warm or cool. When one writes to a Flash memory cell, then the device creates a fairly intense electric field across the insulation surrounding the floating gate making up the cell. This forces some electrons to get trapped in or ripped out of the floating cell (depending on what the manufacturer thinks is better, both technically works.) But each time this is done, it adds a bit of damage to the insulation, making it less good at stopping current from flowing through it. The Flash cell is in effect just a fancy low leakage capacitor. And the faster the charge leaks out from it, the faster it forgets. (And for DLC ("MLC"), TLC, and QLC cells, it forgets even faster due to the smaller charge differences it has to deal with from the get go.) But how does operating temperature play a part in this? Well, the insulation simply has higher leakage when warm, and doesn't need to break down as hard when that current is forced through it. But likewise, the warm temperature has the deficit that the insulation also leaks more current, so the cells forgets faster. In short. If you want to put the drive on a shelf for 10 years, then keep it cool. If you want to use it as a scratch disk for a storage/computing server, then keep it warm. And if you use it as something in-between these two extremes, then it is a bit more of a mix..." Anyway, have a good day and the LTT Forum is awesome -Alex

    it would seem that the NVME chips should be warm but the controller chip is the only one that would benefit from cooling. I removed my m.2 heatsink after learning more about it. (no MB heat-spreader), but plenty of case airflow.

    so yeah the only way i can see to use this is in some kind of application that is so heat sensitive that you have to remove almost all of it from the system. and that would maybe be an enterprise solution not an end user one. and then again, why would you need your data storage so close to the temperature safety zone?

    My ssd never throttles, even under full gaming gpu loads, it does have a heatsink on it and is in an ideal situation case wise, potentially even better than a test bench as its a horizontal mount case with a huge ass 200mm fan blowing directly down on my mobo, oh and my gpu and cpu are both under water with rads outside of the case so no heat soak from them. Horrible case for dust but it craps on everything for temps. Aerocool strike-x, tbh its not very well made either but it does work well.I might mod it into a nicer design one day if i cbf, i a a sheety by trade so not hard! Oh wow, blast from the past here

    Gamers are only slowly realizing they are being sold CPUs far more powerful than their needs. The switch to high performance SSDs is also outrageously outplacing other tech. How much time do gamers really spend reading and writing large files? How long does it really take to load a properly maintained windows OS on a slow SSD? How many FRAMES do you gain by playing games on a 500$ SSD vs a 100$ SSD? Load screens can't even be altered in many games, including the vast majority of online games.

    Is the sound you made at 9:02 the german word "nee" [ˈneː], a variation of "nein" [ˈnaɪ̯n] which means "no" in english? I know I'm a german guy so it's very likely that I hear german words where there's no german word but I couldn't imagine any english word that matches the situation, the only english word that sounds like this is "to neigh" but that doesn't match the context. If I'm completely wrong, please tell me.

    A very high flow rate is not necessarily a good thing, it leads to a very short contact time, resulting in inefficient thermal transfer of heat from the components. The reason manufacturers put those speed bumps and barricades in their cooling loops

    Putting this in the loop with your CPU and GPU makes sense for only the cost of fittings, warms the drive under load and cools it under idle, main reason I water cooled my two Samsung 970 drives with cheapo bitspower blocks on my asus x570 prime pro was under low airflow conditions (external radiator for silence) the drive would heat soak into the mainboard when running backups and then the chipset fan would spin up and the VRM temps also went up, I also only have thermal pads on the DDR and controller sections of the drive but kept the Samsung thermal sticker.

    Altamiro Allebrandt Junior27 hari yang lalu

    As someone that have been running mechanical simulations for the past year, reaching 150 gbs of space on the SSD because of all the components and mesh, my SSD started failing on me. So yeah, maybe the performance boost is not worth it, but what about durability?

  99. Altamiro Allebrandt Junior

    Altamiro Allebrandt Junior27 hari yang lalu

    so summing it up, updating my simulation takes around 12 hours on the ssd, or 48 hours on the HD (it is a pretty crappy HD), in the last 3 days alone I had to adjust and rerun the whole thing 3 times. so it writes about 300 gb per run, that is 900 gb in 3 days. on a 500 gb ssd. (ok, i get it now, no amount ofcooling would compensate for that, and that explain why my ssd is dieing)

  100. Altamiro Allebrandt Junior

    Altamiro Allebrandt Junior27 hari yang lalu

    just to add, since I advanced more on the video to actually see Linus talk about the amount of data writen, my study has 12 simulations on each, Ansys backs up the whole thing before running any change, so it is about 12 gb per simulation (it is not actually even spread but it makes easier) so the study, during update, writes the whole 150 gb backup, runs the updates writting everything on a temp file, for after replacing the current file, so it has 150gb used, it used 150 gb more, then it writes chunks of 12 gb before replacing it. for then, after everything when fine and I hit save, erasing the backup.
