Question CORSAIR Force MP600 heatsink or x570 AORUS XTREME heatsink?


anybody using this combo?

CORSAIR Force MP600 Gen4 PCIe x4 NVMe M.2 SSD with Gigabyte x570 AORUS XTREME mainboard.

I would like to know what is better:

A) Keep the original heatsink that is already premounted on the MP600 (which would leave a hole in the heatsink-cover that comes with the mainboard but on the other hand guarantees the intended cooling and stability)
B) Or try to unmount the original MP600 heatsink and use the heatsink-cover that comes with the mainboard (and hope it will provide the same cooling and stability)

I tend to A) to keep the original heatsink and thus the warranty but would like to hear expert comments on this matter.

Help is very appreciated!

UPDATE: Meanwhile my question was answered here. Summary: Best solution is to use the M2A slot and the drive's original heatsink. If one wants to use the M2B or M2C slots, the drive's orignal heatsink would need to be removed in order to close the MB's chipset heatsink which covers M2B and M2C.
