According to Samsung the sticker is thermally conductive, some kind of copper insert, and removing it voids your warranty. That said, i have removed the stickers on 2x 960 Pro, 1x 970 Pro, 1x 960 Evo, before mounting them to EK heatsinks or motherboard included heatsinks, its very easy as long as you are careful and patient, i pre heat the sticker, using heatgun, and use some very small pliers and all of them have come out fully in one piece, it can easily be re applied if needed. I didn't remove the back one, don't see the point, most heatsinks only have fins on the top.
