What is the crucial P5 plus for the PS5?
Speed: The Crucial P5 Plus is a NVME SSD with the form factor M.2 2280, which fits easily in the PlayStation 5. With a maximum read speed of 6,600 MB / s, it is also fast enough for use in Sony’s console requiring a read speed of at least 5,500 MB / s. The maximum write speed is about 5,000 MB / s, but this is of rather low importance for use in the PS5.
Cooling: The two thermal conductors of Cool Master, which donates alternate, are not the highest quality type of cooling, should still be sufficient for use in the PS5. Your advantage is also that they are comparatively space-saving. The problem with high-quality SSD heatsinks is that many of them do not fit into the PS5. However, if you want a higher quality alternative for the cooling of the SSD, we have a small list with matching cooling bodies for you for you:
- Sabrent M.2 NVME PS5 Heatsink
- Advancing Gene, Universal Type *
- Be quiet! MC1 * (IMPORTANT: Do not buy the PRO version, which is too high!)
- EC360 Aluminum M.2 SSD Cooler *
- Eluteng M.2 2280 SSD Cooler *
- Glotrends M.2 cooler *
