    Not sure of the NVMe ssd size and brand you got (see post above). But could you run ATTO Disk Benchmark 4 times in a row (Just click start again right after each finish). Then post pict of results and ssd temps. Then do the same with Crystal DiskMark. Thanks

    I’ve got a couple questions for everyone:

    I’m wanting to put a heatsink on my 512 SSD I ordered as apparently it’s blazing fast and hot. What have you guys done for this? I was thinking about ordering an m.2 nvme SSD heatsink and some thermal adhesive tape.


    Also, I’m a little weary about the glossy bezels, what’s everyone’s experience? I already see scratches on some of the review units online

    Ran it on the stock drive 4 times back to back as requested, which I'm assuming you wanted. KXG50ZNV512G NVMe TOSHIBA 512GB

    Crystal DiskMark is not picking up the drive for some reason. It sees the one I added, though.

    I upgraded to the 512gb and it came with the heatsink. So far, I think temps are ok on it. Check out my test above.

    Never seen 100C on Pascal graphics before. Cpu and Gpu run eqal around same awful high temp (thanks to shared heatsink/pipes).

    The write speed doesn't look correct.

    Edit. The XG5 when running an OS, it's bypassing the drive's SLC cache when writing sequential datao_O A bad choice as OS Disk. What a flawed idea use it for OS. But ssd temp seems good.

    Outside of just clicking start, not much else do right?
