I thought that was the case. I will be fitting some chip heat sinks on mine with a fan possibly attached.

Overkill, I know. But I will sleep soundly at night knowing its not stifling in the heat. I hot glue gunned a 40mm scythe fan to the back of my 780ti card. Its ghetto, I know. But its "cool"...

Are you using the sm951 as the boot drive, if so how well were you able to set it up and install windows.

Windows installs just like installing on a Sata SSD or hard-drive. Much faster install of course. Just make sure you have a Motherboard that supports the SM951 as a bootable drive.

I have verified two MB's that will boot from the SM951. Make sure you install the latest and greatest motherboard BIOS.

Asus Rampage V Extreme
ASrock X99 Professional

+1 for the AsROCK x99x Killer Fatal1ty. Boots & recognizes just fine.

ASrock has been doing a great job with BIOS updating as of late.

My ASrock x99 Professional Fatal1ty is running flawlessly with the SM951.

Agreed. The customer service was outstanding when I contacted them about my issue. Responded within a couple of hours, and had a BETA bios sent over from their Chinese overlords within a day. I'm an Asrock lifer now. First non-Gigabyte MB since my DFI Lanparty and there is no looking back.....

Just picked up the new Samsung 250GB EVO M.2 SSD for the other M.2 slot on my ASrock Pro.

Using it as a storage device. Running great.
