Akasa SSD heatsink: really cheap and efficient solution

Conclusion

Simple and optimally milled aluminum plate, sounds like a good basis for some SSD heatsink with the potential to achieve high efficiency at low cost. Fast, easy installation and great compatibility with graphics cards is also quite important, plus the look is not bad. Akasa probably wanted to create an ideal compromise of all the key elements. This could easily became a bestseller because the price is just 4 euros.

Conclusion

Akasa heatsink is an excellent product that would fit any SSD PCIe. Compared to the superior EKWB, there are some drawbacks, mostly because of attributes of the stock thermalpad. The efficiency nicely increased with the 1mm Arctic. However, the price is so attractive that there’s no reason to dwell on details. We can imagine a bit better shape of the heatsink, but we also understand that the manufacturer wanted to make something that is also visually appealing and to show off their logo somewhere.

What matters is that that the heatsink can reduce the temperature of your SSD by 20 – 30 ºC, the installation is super easy, and it’s available in every decent shop. It’s simply a great deal for the money. If you know about some other cheap solution for SSD cooling, leave us a comment and we’ll gladly give it a closer look.

For its cooling efficiency and price, we decided to give Akasa SSD heatsink our award “Go for it!“.

Akasa AK-CC6606BP01: A stronger alternative to the Laminar RM1

The database of results of inexpensive low-profile CPU coolers is slowly growing. We tested the largest of the top-flow models from Akasa on the Intel LGA 1700 platform.Given the claimed TDP of 125 W, it looks like this might not only be a replacement for the Laminar RM1 and RS1 that come with more economical processors, but also a solution for open multiplier models that don’t come with a cooler.

Akasa OTTO SF12: Anti-vibration membrane, wavy blades and IP68

Predisposed to more demanding industrial conditions, Akasa OTTO fans go well beyond “normal” home computer use. Complete water and dust resistance, three-phase torque and, above all, a unique vibration elimination system. The effectiveness of the proven “S-Flow” rotor is high, but there is one thing Akasa has overdone a bit. That is, if the OTTO SF12 fan is really meant for system cooling.

Akasa 77 W cooler (AK-CC6603EP01) test for Intel LGA 1700

Akasa has been working for a long time on small and simple coolers to serve as a low-cost replacement for bundled solutions. This company was among the first to come out with support for Intel LGA 1700 and even with more options. In this test, we’ll be checking out the AK-CC6603EP01 mid-range model, which takes on not only the competing Arctic Alpine CO, but also both Intel Laminar coolers (RM1 and RS1).
