in the end i got 2 toshiba's and 2 samsungs.
I've done full disk write test on it, they appear to be new; it would take few months to kill them with writes to verify if they were ever used.
Additionally i've looked up similar nvme's on ebay and seem the prices are only bit higher - not in significant way.


The samsung gets so god damn hot - heatsink in picture struggles under load. (single 80mm noctua at 2000rpm blows on pcie slots).

A faster 4-12k fan should be used instead to keep it down with that heatsink for 24x7 load.

(green is samsung / cyan is toshiba)

I've been looking into heatsinks in anticipation of the new drives. Are those copper ones the most effective?

Probably not going to quad these up on a double-sided card like I planned initially... but it is a tight 1.5U chassis with 3x 13.5k rpm fans with one pointed right at the card...

Yes, and no.
The more area you have to transfer heat is going to be the most effective one. Those aren't that tall so the area for heat transfer is quite limited, and i think the idea was for fan to be over them or very near them.

There's very few heatsinks for that would fit on 22110's.

Potentially if you have space you should use copper heatsinks with bigger fin stacks. They will be able to cool it down much better, and faster.
(as long as size is right - and you have enough space, and mount them on every component on the nvme.)

The holy grail is an adapter that supports 22110 without bifurcation on the motherboard. So 22110 and plx switching on the card
