I ran the Crystal bench again, and now instead of 2500 read/write, it's now 3400/3150. It's not the 5000 read/write commonly reported on Amazon for the Sabrent, but it's progress.

...

I would still like to get the NVMe up closer to 5000 if possible, just "because".
Do you realize that your wish isn’t currently possible on z490, as Comet lake-s runs in PCIE 3.0 mode? The top speed you’re gonna get is roughly 3500 MB/sec.

To get faster the speeds you need PCIe 4.0, and at the moment that is AMD only. We’re hoping Rocket lake-s brings pcie 4.0 to z490, but for now we’re stuck on pcie 3.0.

Or install the M.2 device on a card that has a PCIe 4.0 switch. I think they'll be available soon (probably very expensive?)

The PCIe 4.0 switch should be able to connect to a PCIe 3.0 slot. The switch should use PCIe 3.0 for upstream and PCIe 4.0 for downstream.

Couple of quick suggestions:
  • Do you have a Fenvi FV-T919 or FV-HB1200 WiFi/BT card? If so, please try removing the card and testing this Restart issue again.
  • Also try a CMOS Reset. This will require BIOS to be reconfigured afterwards.
Nope I haven't got any of those cards. The one I have is the genuine apple combo bt/wifi + pcie x1 adapter
I'll try the cmos reset

Still looking for a reason why my original performance was 2500, and now it's 3500 by shuffling devices in PCI slots. Going off of the mobo manual it should have improved nothing. Thanks for setting me straight on the current state of affairs though.

Hi all; is there a 5700 XT Radeon that’s better ? Powercolor vs other? Thanks!

My computer no longer does the double boot cycle from a cold boot - really starting to think there might be a problem with this motherboard. It still appears to run fine, but there’s a few unexplained things going on!

could anyone comment as to whether this would be the equivalent Youbo Wifi Adapter?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/1750Mbps-B...uetooth-4-0-Desktop-WiFi-Adapter/203060468249

Amazon in Canada is sold out of the youbo. I purchased my last hackintosh wifi card from those guys and never had an issue. All the images in the advert appear to be identical to the Youbo.
It's difficult to say. I think you may have to decide for yourself whether or not to take a chance on this product.

After reading the first post and the latest posts about TB3 and some issue's with the QNAP, I have a question.
I have QNAP's and a TerraMaster both with TB3.
Are there any known Issue's with a TerraMaster and TB3?

anyone on a Big Sur having issue with sleep? Does not go to sleep after I moved to Big Sur, it will just turn off display but computer will still run and also tried to remove 1200 Fanvi and Asus 10 gbit but still the same. It was better that I did not go with Big Sur for now :(


I just tried with iMac Pro 1.1 instead 19.1 and it went to sleep lol
