I have an ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme with an TR 3970X. I was all set to get a Samsung 980 Pro to make use of the PCIe 4.0 NVMe speeds, but then WD just announced their Black SN850 4.0 NVMe ssd. Any advice on which I should choose?

Also, what are the differences between using the M.2 slot vs the DIMM.2 slot? Does either offer benefits over the other? I also didn't think I cared about RGB until quite a few of my components ended being such and it actually looks pretty sick lol... So the WD drive with the RGB heatsink in the vertical DIMM.2 slot is something to consider. But speeds are still more important to me than RGB. lol

Thank you
