Will Samsung PM951 work with Lenovo y520

Hey guys, I'm just wondering if PM951 would work with my y520. Few days ago I bought WD Green M.2 ssd which didn't work because, if I got it right, isn't NVMe and kabylakes only work with those kind. So I just want to make sure before I buy one that It would 100% work. If any of you have any experience please confirm that it would work. Thank you.

    Drive needs to be an NVME drive (so uses pci-e x4 bus and not sata, and is m key (not b+m like the 850 evo is).

    Any reason for getting that drive vs the 960 evo which is much faster?

    960s are really expensive here and I found this PM951 used for only few days because it was switched with a bigger capacity so the guy is selling it for a steal.
