Beware RGB SSDs

Stumbled upon this today, while researching SSDs. Thought it might be useful/interesting for some:

Water-cooling a hard drive :D Seems like this is not a bad batch, or anything. It's an actual design flaw, that causes this. How such products get out into the market, is beyond me.


It's also just awesome, that the manufacturer's page says nothing at all about this. Instead, they boast and show off "gold awards" and 10/10 reviews on this product:
FURY SATA 3.0 RGB SSD –240GB-960GB | HyperX

Some more info about the whole thing in the comment section:
