    I think you missed my question of which ThinkPad you have?

    You missed the score question?

    :)
    I have a E570 and the score was 6500 on Cloud Gate. My 970 scored a 13000 on Cloud Gate.

    I scored a new in box IBM Workpad yesterday. $5. It's a nice little addition to my IBM ThinkPad collection.

    Ugh, I remember when things like that used to cost an arm and half a leg.

    Haha. When smartphones were just starting to come out I had a PalmOne Zire 31 with a color display and wifi capabilities. A lot of people were getting the new first gen iPhones and I was still rocking my Zire.

    The Alphacool Eisblock HDX-3 water block offers outstanding cooling for your M.2 SSD. Continuous, substantial data transfer dramatically lowers the performance of an M.2 SSD without cooling and can actually drop performance down to as little as 10% of its actual capability. Transferring large amounts of data heats up the memory controller and chips until a safety mechanism kicks in and severely throttles the SSD’s performance. This can be countered by actively cooling the SSD. After developing the HDX M.2 water block for motherboards with M.2 slots and the passively-cooled HDX-2 PCIe water block, Alphacool has gone one step further with the Eisblock HDX-3 to offer a water cooling solution to this problem.

    The M.2 SSD is screwed onto a PCIe card and then mounted onto the water block. The water block itself is made of nicelplated copper with a screwedon acetal lid. ater in the bloc ows over the entire SSD and ensures optimal heat transfer away from the M.2 SSD. Using the G1/4” connectors, the water block can be attached to any standard water cooling loop.

    The PCIe card is plugged into a 4xPCIe slot and screwed onto the case. With it, data can be transferred at speeds of up to 3900 MB/s. This is a much faster bandwidth than most SSDs can even use. That’s a 600% improvement over conventional 2.5” SATA-SSDs, since the maximum bandwidth for those is 640 MB/s.

    Even compared to motherboard slots, the plug-in card combined with the water block still offers substantially higher transfer rates. M.2 SSDs on motherboards are often only plugged into a 2xPCIe slot, which halves the maimum data transfer rate. It is also difficult to properly cool an M.2 SSD on a motherboard, since the graphics card is generally mounted directly above or below it and tends to significantly heat up the surrounding area. With the Alphacool Eisblock HDX-3, you can avoid all these problems and get the best performance from your M.2 SSD.

    Sorry but that's just a bit ridiculous. A water block for an SSD???

    Hopefully this does fix the unsigned driver error causing it to error out in device manager. Right now I'm running version 4.7 since the last 4.9 version kept throwing an unsigned driver error. Looks like Corsair addressed it in this version. We'll see.

    It works .....but I could still run the older 4.9, with the driver issue, just by updating the bad driver, with the backup I made of all my drivers, then just update that bad driver with the one from 4.7 ....worked fine after that. I just always make a backup of my drivers when everything is working fine, just incase MS installs one I don't want, or does not work correctly.

    You're right! It is ridiculous.
    But, people will buy it just the same. The only part the needs to be cooled or kept cool is the controller.
