A year or two ago I bought an 'empty' OWC NVMe PCIe adapter, branded as the Accelsior 1M2. In trying to install into my classic cheesegrater Mac Pro 5,1 I discovered that even with Opencore and so forth, it was rather glitchy. Given that I'd like to remove the NVME drive and move it to a PC laptop. However it has the OWC-provided heatsink stuck/glued to the top of it. Anyone know how I can safely remove the heatsink and adhesive?
