    One thing that needs mentioning:
    M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD's run pretty warm, and under very heavy loads(Like benchmarking software) tend to heat throttle.
    You might want to look for any reviews that include the thermals before deciding which one you want.

    This is true but also consider good fan configuration to blow some of that heat off or out the back of the case a good airpath will keep it good Click image for larger version.

    My Samsung 950 Pro NVMe drive sits underneath my GPU and runs about 53 average
    It's been running those temps since the day I got it. No issues though.

    Anyway I'm just running 4-fans (excluding GPU/PS) - two case fans - 200mm front and 140mm rear; two 140mm Noctua fans on my H115i AIO CPU cooler. The case is a ventilated Cooler Master HAF X. My room temps average 77 year round.

    On my Gigabyte board, I have the use the M.2 slot under the GPU or else I lose 4 SATA ports, which are needed for my other drives.

    I have one 950 in behind gpu and one in a pcie adapter. 43' and 37' constantly. A single 4" fan could knock 10' off easily if I ever needed it though.

    Dropped my Samsung 950 Pro temps from 53 to 49 Celsius. Did this by removing my now useless Creative ZXR card. I no longer need it because I’m running a high-end USB DAC which requires no sound card. My powered speakers just plug into the DAC and good to go.

    Anyway, removing the dedicated card opened up some breathing space in the case; thus, overall lower temp on the NVME.
