Looking for the RIGHT M.2 Drives for this build (Code "Dark")

This is my near complete, in-process build. Having a couple issues:

Disappointed in the Asus Code board in that the M.2 slots are too narrow for the heat-synced version of the WD_Black SN750 2TB NVMe Internal Gaming SSD with Heat-synced. Feel like a total sucker for splurging on the heat-syncs, and rather than take them off Id rather go with something better, probably Samsung, to go with the SSDs.

Recommendations?
