Sabrent has created an optimised PS5 SSD heatsink for its Rocket Series SSDs

Sony recommends using a heatsink when you expand your PS5's storage. Sabrent has just created an SSD that's designed explicitly for PS5. Let's have a look.

slew of custom heatsink+ssd cover from China incoming

Orbilator1050d ago

The trouble with that is, they don't necessarily do anything other than look like a heat sink. If I'm cooling my SSD I'd only buy from reputable sources. It's like buying a joypad at wish, the pic is defo no what your getting lol 😂🤣

And that's why you shall be a slave to the market and wont benefit from it

mkis0071047d ago

knockoffs are rarely even half the quality of the origin product. You have to buy the knockoff replacement too many times for it to be worth the cost savings.

Orbilator1047d ago


Exactly my point mate. When will people learn

DazaMc1049d ago

I thought the metal cover created an air seal making the fan suck air over the top of the SSD and its heatsink. There's going to be very little air passing over this.

--Onilink--1049d ago

No, you are supposed to remove the metal cover when you install the ssd and heatsink, it doesnt go back on. Not to mention it was just a piece of metal held together by one screw, it will definitely not create any kind of seal, the heatsink come with adhesive material to stick to the ssd

mkis0071049d ago

You aren't talking about the expansion slot cover on the ps5 itself are you? The instructions say to put that back on.

Ozzy24071049d ago (Edited 1049d ago )

The cover goes back on The ps5 airflow is designed to go over the ssd slot

--Onilink--1049d ago

Interesting, yeah I just saw the instructions. Had seen a couple of videos where they left if off, probably were using higher than allowed heatsinks.

kayoss1049d ago

I think it depends on which heatsink you get. this one in the video, it acts as a heatsink and a cover.

Ok if you read and watch their video it is a heatsink and cover all in one. It directs the aurflow through the heatsink thus cooling their ssd. They have very good quality products, they know what they are doing.

But Sony said i need worship them, they said I have to use only their cover. My fanboy brain won't let me disobey my overlords. What is wrong with people on playstation these days? Did all the idiots from xbox come over to playstation with their micro transaction loving, pay to play online, and overpriced generic dlc crap. Oh yea i forgot they all migrated during the ps4 launch, now we can't get rid of these cockroaches.

frostypants1049d ago

I have serious doubts that this heatsink actually cools any better than a non-PS5-specific one. Probably more a gimmick (for looks and a jacked up price) than anything.

Now all we need is for this to get out of Beta.......................... .........

It is a f2p game. Would be more impressive if it cost anything upfront

Flewid6384h ago

The production value is still pretty high for a f2p game.

Einhander19723h ago

To be fair, tons of free to play games never come close to the top ten. And it's also competing with other FTP games in the top ten.

It's an accomplishment to make it into the top ten for any game.

jznrpg1h ago

If it a was a full priced game I would check it out but I don’t want to support the free to play MT model. Looks well made though.

phoenixwing1h ago

if you don't buy anything how are you supporting it?

raWfodog1m ago

I’m guessing they’re referring to adding to the download count, maybe.

I’m having fun with ZZZ though. Honkai Star Rail is another Hoyo game that I’m enjoying. And I don’t have to pay anything? Win win win in my book lol.

Far Cry Has Become A Shadow Of Its Former Self

The trouble with most criticisms of this franchise is that they insist Far Cry 3 was the best game, but the things they claim to hate about the franchise are all the elements that 3 introduced.

Deeeeznuuuts9h ago

Couldn't agree with you more! I've always thought that, my personal favourite is two, the whole atmosphere, mystery, adrenaline, my vehicle steaming up because I've crashed too many times trying to escape and then getting in a shootout, having to pull a bullet out my arm while fire rages and bullets fly, can't beat it

JEECE9h ago

Yep, 2 is my favorite by far as well, and one of my favorite singleplayer games of all time. It was probably one of the last games Ubisoft made before they started homogenizing their franchises to be open world collect-a-thons with unnecessary RPG mechanics tacked on. I enjoyed 3 for what it was, but it was clearly an attempt to make the franchise appeal to a mass audience (which, in fairness, was successful).
