NUC7i5BNH - Samsung 970 EVO M.2

I just got my NUC, and looking for a hard drive.

I came across a Samsung 970 EVO. Is the NUC able to handle the speed or should i stick with a Samsung 860 EVO?

Has anyone tried this combo? What are the read and write results?

Just a side note for future reference - NUC7i5 is not a proper way to abbreviate your NUC's name. There are two families of 7th generation NUCs that this abbreviation could apply to (the NUC7i# BN and the NUC7i# DN families). Either use the full name (NUC7i5BN) or a properly indicative abbreviation like "i5 BN" ("BN" being Intel's two-character abbreviation for the "Baby Canyon" code name).

Just saying,

Scott,

It used to be an NUC7i5BNHX1 but I'm not sure what to call it now since the Optane has been replaced by the EVO970.

Well, a NUC7i5BNHX1 with its Optane module removed is identical to a NUC7i5BNH. The H simply indicates that it has the taller chassis and bay for 2.5" SATA drive, so, for issues not involving the SATA drive, you are down to NUC7i5BN (or NUC7i5BNB, if referring specifically to the board). In either case, "i5 BN" is still a sufficient identifier whereas "NUC7i5" is not.
