Lycom DT-130 has arrived, wish me luck. 

Good luck. Anxious to hear whether both NVMe drives are recognized in that card and able to boot from one of them. Fingers crossed.

Great.  I've seen these advertised with that card.  Not sure whether two of them would fit on that card or are even necessary?

Yes they probably would, I'd however say that they probably aren't necessary. Its the chip on the card itself that gets really hot, the only reason my two have heatsinks is because they came out of a compact HP EliteDesk PC which was having issues with the drives overheating and I see no reason to take them off now.

They even show nicely in HPE Smart Storage Administrator:

7 VMs running 24x7 and the Samsung drives are operating around 50/51c which I'm happy with, will get some power usage stats tomorrow.

I've run some tests again this morning and the highest I saw it hit was around 118w so I'm really happy, the NVMe storage is obviously way quicker too.
