Currently, I have a MSI GE72 Apache Pro-070. (Not sure if the 070 model number matters... most people usually try to help but post slightly different models :/ ) 
Hard Drive: 128GB SSD (PCIE Gen3 x4) + 1TB (7200RPM) 

I wanted to know if SAMSUNG 950 PRO M.2 <<512GB>> PCI-Express 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive would be a good candidate to use for upgrading my SSD. 


I'm only assuming so since the PCIexpress is the same but I'm not sure if the B/M keys would be different :/

That drive is using M.2 connector and your laptop seem to have same connector. However there are many sized M.2 drives so it's not that simple. Quick use of google seem to tell that it's compatible.


However almost every faster than SATA 3 M.2 drives are overheating crap, that includes 950 Pro. So almost every fast M.2 drive is still on beta state and so I cannot recommend any of them.
