    Sleep doesn´t work on my computer: I click sleep, the machine goes to "sleep", I have a energy meter on the outlet for the computer, computer goes to sleep and consumes 2-3watt, but after about 1 minute in "sleep" the machine starts to consume more power about 50watt and stays like that. But the...

    The iMac (21.5-inch Retina Early 2019) from Apple, when shipped with i8700k : Single-Core Score 5837 // Multi-Core Score 26572. And I dont think it is overclocked from apple. This got me thinking that I should hit higher numbers than single 5937 - multi 24546 . What do you guys think?

    Did some more GeekBench scores - everything normal in BIOS: single 5937 - multi 24546 /// multiplier set to x47 in BIOS : single 5938 - multi 26177 I think that's a too low score for this CPU (8700K), any tips on settings in BIOS or anything I´m missing or doing wrong? Screenshot of Intel...

    Question about NVMe drives, this build uses : ADATA SX8200 240GB NVMe PCIe - if I buy the 512GB version would it be compatible with this build? And what about other manufacturers like the Crucial MP510 series? I see Samsung on the buyers guide, but not ADATA. Will I run in too problems buying...

    I've read that the Z390 boards have issue with NVRAM ? Is this so, and if does it affect this build?

    Yes, using the Designare Z390 motherboard. Thanks for answering so quick. This is the only thing I may have to change? "Sapphire Nitro+ might require enabling CSM Support in BIOS." ? Sounds good!

    Yes it is fun, when it works! M.2 drives - some say its best to go for a regular SSD drive for OS - why? Wouldnt it be faster with a NVMe / M.2 drive? Why are you not sure about it? Also, you say TB3 is easy, but you can´t hotplug on you´re machine?
