It overheats when being used a lot

 

but if you're not using it a lot then you're not getting your money's worth...

 

but if you have lots of $ then that shouldnt be a big problem

Is your system worth it? Easily though I would not spend that kind of money on a SSD. I think a 500GB 850Evo Sata would be much better, personally Storage > A bit faster of a SSD though it is all up to you.

I'm not sure if it will work on that board, is there any UEFI options in the bios? It doesnt appear to have a m.2 port, which isnt a problem as there are existing PCIE adapter cards

On the storage section of my motherboard specifications, it says:

Intel® Z87 chipset : 

1 x M.2 (NGFF) Socket 2 on mPCIe Combo II expansion card(s), black

Support M.2 (NGFF) Type 2242 SSD card (22mm x 42mm), Support PCI express 2.0 x1 and SATA 6Gb/s standards

Ye the Samsung wont fit, its a 2280 type card.

 

Basically your card accepts a 22mm wide ssd and 42mm long. The Samsung is 22mm x 80 mm
