EKWB Partners with Seagate for FireCuda 530 Stock Heatsink

EK Water Blocks (EKWB) have partnered with Seagate to launch the FireCuda 530 solid state drive with a heatsink, offering a minimalist design, anodized-aluminium body, and finely textured micropore surface to improve heat transfer and lower SSD temperatures. Thanks to that, the Seagate FireCuda 530 can run at peak speeds for extended periods of time. This cutting-edge SSD has a Seagate-validated E18 controller and the latest 3D TLC NAND memory and achieves speeds of up to 7,300 MB/s.

This SSD delivers incredible transfer speeds of up to 7,300 MB/s with extremely fast response times allowing applications to run fast, snappy, and with no bottlenecks in the storage department. It is ideal for high-bandwidth video rendering, previewing, and as a Photoshop scratch disk for large files. It also works amazing for gaming, providing fast load times and great access times. FireCuda 530 has DDR4 memory for caching, but it also uses an SLC dynamic cache alongside a technology called SmartFlush to recover the SLC cache space quickly and making sure it never fills up its buffer.

All this speed also generates extra heat. This is why EKWB designed a low-profile heatsink that is built from high-grade aluminium with a finely textured anodized finish to maximize its cooling efficiency. This built-in heatsink helps reduce thermal throttling while allowing peak performance for extended periods of time.

The FireCuda 530 Heatsink SSD works perfectly with PlayStation 5 consoles. It meets PS5 specs on performance and dimensions thanks to the low-profile heatsink. This built-in heatsink gives it an edge over the competing drives without a heatsink, but it also does not sacrifice any compatibility thanks to the low-profile design.

Price & Availability

The FireCuda 530 Heatsink 1 TB is readily available for purchase through the EK Webshop, while the 2 TB model will be available shortly. In the table below, you can see the manufacturer suggested retail prices (MSRP) with VAT included.

Prices inclusive of VAT:

  • FireCuda 530 Heatsink 1 TB: €305.00
