The gigabyte comes with a M2 heatsink. I've got my little 240 SATA M2 in there for now.
Yeah I did see that which is the reason I was looking for a "heatsink" for the M.2 as I quite like the look for it it. Even just a plate to cover would have been good.

Watch this before going to bed and you'll sleep better,
Just a quick question regarding updating bios - I see there is a bios flash back button on this board and from the video it seems I don't need an old CPU to update bios - is that correct or did I misunderstand that and need an older CPU in order to update bios?

No cpu required to flash the bios.

Rebeltech reliable? Was about to place order for msi B450 pro carbon to compare shipping costs and the site crashed.
Very. You can't go wrong with them, wootware or titan-ice.

I think they have some site issues as I can't open the site Error 522, was working fine last night.

EDIT: They took their server down for a exim security issue.

Been dealing with wootware they have been good so far. Will check out titan-ice. Thanks

I've purchased from both woot & rebel and both have excellent service. titan-ice I have not used but there are people here I trust that recommend them as well.

Where you located?

Have used all 3 . Wootware & Rebeltech are good. I prefer using Titan Ice as they are pretoria located so easier for me to deal directly with. Any of the three are quality.

Tried them for the first time. Ordered an M.2 SSD on Friday, paid and got the drive on my desk this morning. Free shipping nogal :p (I'm in East London btw)

Before hitting the order button what do you guys think of this setup?

Case : Msi mag bunker
https://www.wootware.co.za/msi-mag-bunker-black-tempered-glass-atx-mid-tower-desktop-chassis.html
PSU : Super flower 650W
https://www.wootware.co.za/super-fl...fully-modular-black-desktop-power-supply.html
M/B : Msi B450 pro carbon
https://www.wootware.co.za/msi-b450...ryzen-socket-am4-atx-desktop-motherboard.html
Ram : Gskill trident 3200
https://www.wootware.co.za/g-skill-...-3200mhz-cl16-1-35v-black-desktop-memory.html

Should I buy now or wait for the 3600 release and order all same time?
