Would this drive, with heatsink, be compatible ...

Would this drive, with heatsink, be compatible with a MSI Creator Z16 as a second internal drive?
Asked by: Alan
The 1st answer is not correct! Virtually all laptops cannot fit internal SSDs with heatsinks because they are too thick, you cannot screw the bottom cover of your laptop back! Unfortunately, most laptop manufacturers prioritize thin laptop bodies over functionality so they do not follow a standard for internal SSD heatsink height clearances. You are better off buying the slightly cheaper model of this SSD without the heatsink attached. If you already have the model with a heatsink, you can still use it on a laptop by removing the heatsink, it is just attached to the SSD chips by adhesive thermal pads, so it is easy to remove. These SSDs with heatsinks are meant for desktop and console installation where the required height clearances are met. HTH
