Question about 970 EVO Plus installation/heatsink

I just installed my 970 EVO Plus 1TB, are these normal values for the benchmark and also the temperature is supose to be like that (66ºC max)? I'ts installed on my motherboard below the heatsink that comes with the mobo, also I didn't need any screw to fix the M2, just used the heatsink screws to sit on top of it, is that right? I tried installing without heatsink before but the screw wasn't going all the way to push the SSD down to the limit, I don't know if it's supose to be like that or I had the wrong screw...

safe operating temperature is 0c - 70c.

if the screw fits and it holds it in place then it's fine.

most M2 heatsinks/shields do more harm than good, both of my NVME are under my GPU with no heatsinks and they stay below 55c during CrystalDiskMark and usually stay in the mid 30s during normal use.
