Western Digital Black SN750 with Heatsink SSD Review

TweakTown says the Western Digital Black SN750 they just reviewed was equipped with one of those fancy EK heat sinks on it that helps it stay cool under pressure.

You should think of the flash controller like a processor, the main component in your PC. SSD controllers are intelligent and have to process more data than most realize. Those calculations require switching and power, so they produce heat just like your CPU and GPU, two components that we associate with heat sinks used for cooling.
