Teamgroup a brand known for their memory and storage solutions has come out with a rather interesting product, the T-Force Cardea Liquid Cooling M.2 PCI-e SSD. This is what they had to say about it.
TEAMGROUP’s numerous products with great features have successfully attracted attention from around the world. In addition, two products with exclusive patents are released today as well, they are T-FORCE CARDEA Liquid water cooling M.2 PCI-e SSD and T-FORCE CAPTAIN RGB Control Box. T-FORCE CARDEA Liquid M.2 PCI-e SSD is the world’s first solid state drive that combines water cooling and M.2. This innovative new product uses self-circulation cooling to lower the temperatures effectively. T-FORCE CAPTAIN RGB Control Box has 4 5V ARGB output connectors and one 12 V RGB output connector. Moreover, it supports multiple devices so the style is switchable with any combination when building yourself a PC and a variety of lighting effects can enhance the atmosphere. The two new T-FORCE products released today have exclusive patents. They are both innovative and unique, and TEAMGROUP’s strength in research and development is displayed through them.
T-FORCE CARDEA LIQUID is the world’s first, water cooling M.2 PCIe solid state drive specially built for gaming and high-performance PC. The crystal -clear outer casing structure, and T-FORCE LOGO’s metal trim and the sliding rail design (Taiwan Utility Model Patent No. M574264) are the perfect combination of craftsmanship and style. After TEAMGROUP laboratory’s testing and burn-in tests, by using the concept of self-circulation cooling effect, this product is proven it can effectively lower the temperature down 10 degrees. T-FORCE CARDEA LIQUID has PCIe Gen3 x4 high speed interface. The read/write speed is up to 3400/3000 MB/s, and random read/write speed is up to 450K/400K IOPS. In addition to the effective cooling effect which can keep the system stable, its excellent performance is also reliable. This year, it not only won the COMPUTEX d&i award, but it was also praised by everyone during its first appearance at the COMPUTEX 2019.
T-FORCE CAPTAIN RGB Control Box is an exclusive gaming RGB environment controller developed by TEAMGROUP according to the needs of gamers and PC DIY enthusiasts worldwide. T-FORCE CAPTAIN RGB Control Box has exclusive utility model patent and great surface design texture. The lighting effect switch button and the T-FORCE LOGO are combined with each other. The thoughtful magnetic feature makes it able to be attached on the computer case. It is an extended peripheral product which specially created for gamers’ using environments. In addition to supporting four 5 V ARGB output connectors and one 12 V RGB output connector, it can also detect the source of the lighting control automatically to extend the synchronization signal connected to the motherboard. When there is no external RGB signal from the motherboard, then the five built-in, colorful, independent lighting effects of T-FORCE CAPTAIN RGB Control Box can be used to control as well. It supports multiple different devices and allows gamers to both ARGB and RGB devices at the same time. This offers gamers a more coordinated RGB lighting control solution and creating more extensible lighting effects for gamer’s custom PC.

Niche Gamer’s Take: While this is probably overkill and many newer motherboards include a heatsink for M.2 drives this is still a cool edition for those who want a bit more flair in their custom loop water cooled PC.
