That's really up to you. As long as it actually dissipates heat and doesn't act as an insulator, it can only help.

I use the mobo NVMe heatsinks hinged onto my Aorus Master mobo for my three NVMe drives. They do an effective job of keeping the drives relatively cool. I'm sure that the same will apply to your Asus mobo.

There are plenty of free / trial partition managers and backup tools available for Windows, but which ones are best suited will depend on what you are attempting to do...

Non destructive migration paths for Windows...

Non system disk --> non system disk is easy and they will all do this
Non-UEFI (MBR) system disk --> Non-UEFI (MBR) system disk is also easy, but you may require a registered (or cracked) tool to do this, for example, MiniTool Partiton Manager
UEFI (GPT) system disk --> UEFI (GPT) system disk should also be straightforward with a registered tool
Non-UEFI (MBR) system disk --> UEFI (GPT) system disk can be very tricky, especially if MBR2GPT refuses to work. I managed this conversion recently via a rather convoluted procedure using TrueImage. It can be done, but not one for the inexperienced ;):

My MP510 960Gb drives idle between 30C and 35C and don't get too much hotter under load. My Samsung 970 EVO+ drive runs about 10C hotter. Under stress testing, they may reach 60C, but that is an exception. Note that I do have a lot of airflow through my case and I am using the heatsinks supplied with my mobo for all three drives.

Over provisioning is already built into this drive, which is why it is 960Gb, rather than 1Tb.

The Silicon Power equivalent drive lets you use the full 1Tb.
