The ssd will fit, and should work, the only concern I would have is that the 980 Pro is a PSIe Gen4 drive, and those guys can get pretty warm. Plus, I don't think your laptop supports Gen4 speeds anyway, so If you already have a drive, it should still work, but it will be limited to Gen3 speeds. And if not, maybe consider a nice Gen3 drive, like a 970 Evo Plus or 970 Pro. There is a new Gen3 drive called SSD 980, so a higher number might make it appear to be better, but it's really not. Reviews are pretty bad. I was very happy with a 970 Evo Pro in a Razer Blade 13 laptop in the past.
