The kryoM.2 is a PCIe 4x adapter for M.2/M-Key NGFF PCIe SSD and is compatible with the form factors 2280, 2260 and 2242. The adapter uses a multilayer PCB with gold surface where the individual layers are connected to each other to optimize the thermal management. The SSD is installed with a thermal pad which already allows a better cooling over regular adapters. The water block covers the front side of the SSD with a second thermal pad and ensures maximum performance of high speed SSDs. The connector terminal of the water block is the same as used for the kryographics blocks. This allows using kryoconnect adapter kits to connect several blocks directly with each other. To ensure a good quality and reliability the connector for the M.2 SSD comes from Amphenol, the PCIe contacts are plated with hard gold and the circuit paths are impedance controlled.
