Samsung 960 - From poor to rich! What now...

Following the conversation about a month ago I here regards 960 SSDs I was starting to think I may not get one in time for my build sometime this month and the 'in stock' messages kept changing a B&H so I order one of each, figuring I'd cancel when the first once came in. Last week I got an email that the order had shipped, so now I have two.

Any suggestions. I was probably going to go with an 850 for boot, but I could also keep both of these and use it with an Asus x99 Deluxe II as it comes with the extra pcie card. Or I can send one of these drives back, etc.

What do you mean by angle wings to help thermal throttle? What temps are critical?

I do not know what it takes to achieve thermal throttling but with my M.2 trio of devices I have written to my 960 Pro M.2 SSD at  almost 2000 MB/second from my second 960 Pro M.2 and seen no sign of any throttling. Now I do have a small air flow in that area.
