Finding a good PS5 SSD deal this Prime Day isn't too challenging as there are many offers on 1TB and 2TB console-compatible drives this time around. However, for those who don't mind getting a little more DIY, there's even more money to be saved, as you can opt for a standalone heatsink and replacement M.2 cover for less than the price of a dedicated heatsink model.
For as much as I've been blown away by the Prime Day PS5 SSD deals for what they offer out of the gate, the biggest savings can be found when turning your attention to some of the best SSDs. That's because Gen 4 models are crashing down to historic lowest-ever prices in the wake of Gen 5 drives on PC. Manufacturers are clean to clear out the last of their inventory as the PCIe 5.0 storage solutions begin widespread adoption, and you can get the best deal for your PS5 by opting for a cheaper "naked" drive and going DIY.
Below you'll find my top recommendations for the best cheap PS5 SSD heatsinks in the US and the UK, most of which are available under $10 / £10 and could save you a lot more in the long run. For more on Sony's latest console, we're also rounding up all the best Prime Day PS5 deals and the best Prime Day video game deals, too.
