This new PC watercooler covers both your CPU and SSD

TeamGroup has just launched a new PC water cooler. That might not be that interesting, you’re probably telling yourself. But with the new Sired Duo360, there’s an interesting wrinkle: This device cools both your CPU and your M.2 SSD at the same time.

It’s the first water cooler to do such a thing. Most of the best PC watercoolers stick to the CPU alone or add the graphics card into the mix. This is a different kettle of fish.

The Siren Duo360 comprises a 4000RPM pump and a 360mm radiator. For the CPU, there’s a 120mm ARGB hydraulic bearing fan that’s compatible with Intel LGA 1700 and AMD AM5 CPU sockets. The storage cooler works with 2280 M.2 SSDs.

But why bother cooling the SSD in the first place? Unlike processors and graphics cards, SSD storage drives aren’t known for their enormous heat generation. But that seems to be changing with the introduction of PCIe 5 drives, which this watercooler is specifically designed for.

PCIe 5 SSDs are capable of much greater speeds than their predecessors, doubling the memory bandwidth up to 128GBps. All that extra zip means much more heat gets generated, which could result in the drive throttling if the temperature is not properly handled.

TeamGroup says the Siren Duo360 can do just that, though. The company gave the example of a PCIe 5 SSD running at 12,000Mb/s transfer speeds and claimed its cooler could reduce its “over 100 degrees C operating temperatures” by 50%.

Who is this for?

Of course, this being a gaming device, the Siren DUuo360 is as much about RGB lighting as it is about keeping your components cool. Not only are the fans, CPU block, and SSD block all bedecked in eerie translucent lights, but the SSD cooler element can be removed and attached to any magnetic surface inside your PC case.

Aside from the sheer novelty of this cooler, though, there is the question of who the Siren Duo360 is actually for. The first PCIe5 SSDs are due to launch this November, but with such incredible speeds on offer, you’ll likely have to pay through the nose to get one. That itself might limit the appeal of TeamGroup’s snazzy new cooler.

And there’s another issue. TeamGroup has not explained how many M.2 SSDs can fit inside the storage unit, but given the company has to fit a complete watercooler inside that unit, we wouldn’t be surprised if it can only hold one drive at a time. M.2 drives are designed to be small and lightweight, a fact that the chunky cooling box makes completely irrelevant. It might also struggle to fit inside smaller cases, ruling out anyone who likes to use small form factor PCs.

Still, it’s certainly an eye-catching product, and might be worth considering if you’re not fazed by those drawbacks and need something to keep your future PCIe 5 SSD as cool as can be. If that sounds good, the TeamGroup Siren Duo360 is set to launch this November for a recommended price of $400.

This HP Pavilion desktop PC had its price cut from $700 to $440
HP PC connected to a monitor.

HP is one of the most reliable sources for dependable desktop PCs at affordable prices. Take this as an example -- the HP Pavilion Desktop TP01, originally priced at $700, is currently available for just $440 following a $260 discount. With a configuration that's more than enough for the usual tasks that you'll do for work or school, this is one of the most attractive desktop computer deals that we've seen in a while. We're not sure how long this offer will remain online though, so you'll have to complete the purchase as soon as possible if you don't want to miss out.

Why you should buy the HP Pavilion Desktop TP01
Let's get it out of the way -- the HP Pavilion Desktop TP01 isn't going to be as powerful as the top-of-the-line models of the best desktop computers. However, with its AMD Ryzen 3 5300G processor, integrated AMD Radeon Graphics, and 8GB of RAM, it's going to be more than enough to handle activities such as doing online research, making reports, and creating presentations. The desktop PC excels in its storage capabilities though, as it's got a 256GB SSD for its primary storage where Windows 11 Home is pre-installed and a 1TB HDD for its secondary storage. That's a lot of space for your files!
