    Hi everyone.

    I am trying to remove the heat sink of my 2013 mac pro SSD and would like to place it in 2014 mid macbook pro 13".

    I put some force to remove it but it seems not working at all :( Have anyone removed it successfully?

    I removed it but destroyed the metal cover, as I will not use it on Mac Pro. Also I suggest it will be better to cut off both sides for easier removal.

    I would have sold the nMP blade on eBay and bought a MBP model blade on eBay for hardly any extra, if not less expense.

    I would have said 'don't do it' but it's already too late..

    Actually, I bought this from someone who upgraded his Mac Pro to 1Tb and sold this at 2/3 price of the Macbook SSD, cheap because of the metal cover.
    And do you know whether the Mac Pro SSD will reach the original performance on its new home? Macbook Pro or Macbook Air?

    No because the nMP runs at PCIe 4x and ther others 2x. I would still auction that and get the equivalent 2x blade as it is worth more being a faster part. It's a part in demand by cMP users to go in sintech PCIe cards.

    All 1TB pci-e ssd's for apple machines are 4x. The one in the rMBP and the nMP are the same module, sans the heatsink

    sometimes people do things that you want to say what the *beeb*!!

    First question is why you wanted to put a heat sink on the ssd from a MBP?

    Second: couldn't you just get a piece of aluminum? did you have to destroy the one on the nMP?

    That's a guesswork and incorrect. I don't know technical terms, but that's the speed test on a MBA.

    It's may be the same as you said, but it should be different from the 256GB SSD used on MBP or MBA, even all visible parts the same, all from SAMSUNG, , isn't it?

    Not 100% sure on that. They should all be Samsung, and physically they are the same and they will fit into each other's slots. They probably have different model numbers though.
