GALAX is further expanding their product catalogue beyond just video cards with the addition of a new storage option. Introducing the GALAX Hall of Fame M.2 2280 SSD, an M.2 2280 drive which comes in the white HOF PCB.

Unlike most other M.2 drives, the GALAX M.2 SSD comes with a custom heatsink pre-installed. This heatsink is CNC milled out of aluminium and integrates a copper heatpipe. The result is superior cooling compared to simply using just an aluminium heatspreader.
