SSDs with heat spreaders usually have them factory applied.

This one doesn't. This one instead comes with a heat spreader/heat sink you have to apply yourself. "DIY" may sound wrong, but please just get over it already.

Unless you regularly buy sunglasses with micrfiber cloth wipes stuck to them, and are now comparing that to buying a set of sunglasses you plan to screw a microfiber cloth down onto yourself, I'm really not sure why you went with that analogy :p

Anyway, the 480GB is also on sale and at $129 that's a ridiculous deal for an NVMe drive with this level of performance. Numerous reviews show it holding its own with NVMe Samsung Evos. Snagged one, thanks OP.

It comes in the package but is not applied. It's optional - you have to apply it yourself. Literally on the side of the package it says, and I quote, "DIY Heatsink Inside."

Picked one up! FYI, I wasn't charged sales tax for NY, which makes the deal even sweeter.

The comparable XPG SX8200 from ADATA is $71.99 at the same site [newegg.com]. These drives use the same memory and controller but the XPG is over-provisioned and comes with an aluminum "DIY" heatsink.

How is it Do-It-Yourself if it comes with it?

Hmm... I guess that's one way to appeal to the DIY market.

I admit I don't really consider that "DIY" but in this case it just means that the heatsink does not come pre-applied. I guess it's worth advertising the option as it affords a small amount of flexibility. I have its sister drive, the HP EX920, as well, which comes with nothing, and in my testing the heatsink actually does improve thermals, for what that's worth.

I'm not questioning the efficacy of the heatsink, just the silly use of the term "DIY". Excuse me while I go listen to some music on my phone with my DIY headphones.
Take it up with ADATA. I edited my initial post to put DIY in quotation marks to clarify it's their marketing term. You do have to remove tape and apply the heatsink yourself and I've seen people install aftermarket CPU heatsinks without taking off the plastic protector before (more than a few times, too), and that's seen by some as a "DIY" install so let's leave it at that.

More important to this post while staying with the subject matter: I installed my own heatsink on the EX920 (which is DIY) but be aware that all of these drives are double-sided so may not work with some aftermarket M.2 heatsinks.

With this logic, my sunglasses came with diy microfiber cloth wipe. I feel useful already.

Yep, you can underclock your SSD, but have not found a way to overclock it.
But over/undervolting it is possible with a pot.
