"As you can see, you would have to write nearly 150GB at over 1.5GB/sec to get a 950 PRO to warm up enough to throttle, and when it does, the throttling is very minor, dropping to only 1.2GB/sec intermittently. The slightest airflow prevents this from happening at all, and even if there was zero airflow, the chances of maxing a 950 PRO out on writes for that long of a burst is extremely unlikely in even the most demanding consumer usage scenario."
This DIY kit only costs me $10.

Its still a lot of work for something that can be easily achieved with good air flow. Also combined with a high chance of voiding the warranty = not worth it.

Only way you can write that fast on 950 pro is if you have another 950 pro, so if you don't have at least two 950 pro, don't bother.

Good airflow is all you need IMHO. Here is a 121 GB file from one 950 to another, it was a little slow to start and one little dip for a couple of seconds but no thermal throttling going on. Highest temp on either drive is 59'. Both drives were back to 33' within a couple of mins.

I guess I have been lucky with my 950 Pro. Under load it only gets to about 50C. Which is not bad at all.
