PNY engineered the heat sink with a negative pressure design, which the company says "delivers extreme cooling performance, cooling the SSD over 40% compared to no heat sink". Well, duh... no heat sink versus heat sink. Still, the new PNY XLR8 SSD Cover with Integrated Heatsink designed to fit PS5 hits the market this month on BestBuy and Amazon (as well as PNY's own website, and other retail partners) for $19.99.

PNY explains: "PNY XLR8 SSD Cover with Integrated Heatsink is designed to fit PS5 and improve the thermal performance of the SSD mounted in the expanded storage slot. The integrated cover and heat sink were meticulously crafted to replace the standard SSD cover. The SSD cover and integrated heat sink work together for increased heat dissipation during intense gaming sessions maximizing the thermal performance of your NVMe SSD upgrade".
