Hi guys,

I am a bit of a rookie when it comes to PC's but, will a B350 Tomahawk be compatible with a Samsung 980 PCIe 3.0?

Thanks
 
hey the heatsink is a "nice to have", if you are doing heavy writing like video editing or other multimedia tasks it is probably a very good idea to have one so you don't lose performance - the ssd itself will thermal-throttle if things heat up too much so it's not really a worry

So check your temps, if they are high or you are to the point where the performance does drop another point to check would be the case airflow, maybe adding a bottom or side panel fan would also help to cool things down as well...
