no its not compatible with the heat spreader that comes with the drive. If I remember correctly, the spreader is separate so dont use it.

I do not believe it is compatible because of the heatsink.

The ssd has a pre-applied heat pad and shield, so what should I do?

you can remove it then. I have this same SSD in my HTPC build and I removed it to install it under my motherboards heatsink for the m.2 drive.

I got it from Canada computers on sale for $60. Would removing the heatshisld void my manufacturer warranty?

I believe that it would, but you should probably check the warranty paper. (as stated above)

I am not familiar with CC's return policy. You could attempt to return it for one without a shield.

Ok, would it be better to return the ssd, losing the ~$150 off from the clearance sale, and buy another one, or purchase a mounting screw to use the othe slot on my motherboard?
