Found Samsung SM951 for sale - Page 49

I want to know, whats the best passive heatsink you can find to slap on this? Just perusing ebay for some small, relatively tall heatsinks to tie on (Not looking for adhesive, want it to be in sellable condition afterwards), this is what I've found. I don't know the exact size heatsink that would be preferable yet.

Edit: This seller has a number of oddball heatsinks. Here are a few, as well as his store

http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-x-Green-Aluminum-Cooler-Radiator-Heat-Sink-Heatsink-19mm-x-14mm-x-11mm-/321704456896?hash=item4ae71472c0:g:YL8AAOSwMmBVz5UP
http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-x-Silver-Tone-Aluminium-Radiator-Heatsink-Heat-Sink-20x21x15mm-/311221878954?hash=item48764500aa:g:SjcAAOSwPcVV0BvF

Any of these sufficient?

http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=digitalzone02&_armrs=1&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR11.TRC2.A0.H0.Xheatsink.TRS1&_nkw=heatsink&_sacat=0

Any aluminum or copper passive heat sinks should work fine. My personal choice is copper - just because - it's kind of like why do I need a CaseLabs chassis (?) Why do I need a water cooled system? Why overclock everything? Because I want to and can. Your choice to be "safe than sorry" is reason enough. I will put sinks on my SM951 simply to avoid hassle at a later time. Who wants to disassemble a water loop to put heat sinks on a drive tucked up under graphics cards and acrylic tubing? In my case, better preemptive than a reactive hassle.

Something like these: http://www.enzotechnology.com/mos_c1_le.htm
Or this (spray/brush a bit of flat/matte black on them):http://www.enzotechnology.com/mos_c10.htm

These look good, but would have to check SM951 to ensure size is correct: http://www.ebay.com/itm/RAM-VGA-Memory-IC-Chipset-Cooler-Cooper-Heatsink-14mm-x-11mm-/321420827342?hash=item4ad62c9ace:g:U6wAAOSw~gRVz5sp

Adhesive is a must for me, not thermal glue, some 3M (or equivalent) thermal tape. It sticks tight, but lets go with a small amount of effort and cleans off lickety-split with alcohol.

The Samsung NVME driver for the 950 Pro is available (but not compatible with the SM951 it would seem)

There is a topic for the 950 Pro, like this one?

If I get a H170 board would I see any performance drop compared to a Z170 board in SSD performance? I want to get a Samsung 950 Pro 512GB M.2 as SSD... Thanks
