I just finally figured out the 3.1 Samsung driver was causing my onboard audio to pop. I'm not installing that driver anymore. I can't measure any performance difference anyway.

I had the 3.0 Samsung driver installed previously and after a Windows update I couldn't cold boot. So, I uninstalled it to fix that. Then I tried 3.1 as that fixed the cold boot problem, but now I had to uninstall it to fix the audio pops.

I don't believe any software devs or hardware manufactures probably test with the Samsung driver installed, hence these weird quirks occur. I don't think the driver is complete trash, it's just not as widely tested as the Microsoft built-in driver.

Heatsink is must have for this M.2. He reach 83C when some test start.
I installed system on him but I didn't install software and drivers and test him from Windows installled on 850 EVO.
I will not use 970 EVO PLUS before install EK Heatsink. In Idle is 60 when work nothing.
Special because my GPU cover him.
I hope temps will drop on 50-70C after I install heatsink.
EK aluminium looks nicest quality, I search first some without logo but didn't found.

I can't believe that ASUS or EVGA didn't made some nice fancy M.2 Heatsink.
ASUS ROG would be nice for my motherboard. Anyway I can't use nothing fancy because there is a place just for EK Heatsink.

I too got the EK heatsink for my current 970 EVO 512GB. Luckily, my graphics card doesn't sit "on top" of it.
It will be interesting to see how much the temps will drop.
What program do you recommend i use to stress test the SSD for about 10-15mins so i can make a before/after comparison?


LE:

so i did install the heatsink, really cool results. Ran AS SSD Benchmark test for 10GB, 5GB and after the 3GB i took the highest temps. So from 87 celsius to 62 on the controller and the memory 64 to 53. I'd say the results are really nice.
Some pics added. Also i removed both the front and back stickers.

You removed labels from bottom and from top part.
Removing labels destroy warranty, only bottom label or any of label?

And how do you removed label from NVMe M.2 SSD?
I think to remove my label, only on top. Bottom label is thicker and have copper, at least on 970 EVO PLUS.
It's nicer without label. I don't know why Samsung complain on removing label with serial number when Magician read serial number.
And Samsung know more ways how to react exactly serial number oon

Yes I removed both stickers, i don't see it fit to leave them be if you use a heatsink. Indeed, the back one was thicker and more solid/sturdy. I don't know how it would have been temps wise by keeping them, but i bet it's better this way.

Did you had problem to remove top heatsink, I would not remove bottom one. No need.
Even if on my motherboard Samsung 970 EVO Plus is hidden and almost not visible, without label is even better.

Front sticker is a bit trickier yeah, cause it breaks apart. But nothing complicated.
