Hey Guys I really need help to choose a new SSD nvme hard drive for my 6,1 Macpro. I saw on Amazon the EVO 970 1To at 189€ but also Sabrent Rocket 2TB for 299€. Is Sabrent as good as Evo 970 ? What SSD do you recommend for 6,1 Macpro ? and what Heatsink model should I buy ? thanks a lot !!

Today I installed the HP EX950 2TB SSD in my Trashcan Mac Pro.
I am in the process of benchmarking the speed, temp and boot times of the original Apple 256 GB SSD, OWC Aura 1TB, and the HP EX950.

I will post results in a new thread.
