You should search the other threads on the subject of the Samsung 960 EVO M.2 NVme before you proceed. There are several folks with boot up issues after installing this SSD especially in the XPS 8910 and XPS 8920 that in my opinion have not been resolved.

Look at this comparison of the two SSDs: www.thessdreview.com/.../ . Since you own one I don't think it is worth it to buy the other.
