Solved! Go to Solution.
From the reviews, it seems the gen 5 NVMe SSDs run hot,.. I agree waiting to see temps, both with factory cooling solution, and active cooling.
I plan on modifying the Z790 Apex 5.0 M.2 card,.. hopefully the Alphacool Core M.2 NVMe 4.0 PCIe block will match-up, mount to Apex 5.0 card, or can be modified to mount.
I ordered the Alphacool block yesterday,.. so will soon find out what is required drilling, tapping,... but it might just fit,.. lol

CrystalDiskInfo Inland TD 510 PCIe 5.0 x4 compared to Samsung 990 Pro PCIe 4.0 x4 on X670E Gene/7950X system Gen-Z.2 M.2 riser card.
The Inland TTD510 drive temps in the Gen-Z.2 card are fine even under sustained load, I have ran several drive benchmarks, temps are not an issue.
No need for active cooling on X670E Gen-Z.2 riser card.
Until recently I found out that my front USB 3.0 dont work, but Iam sure they worked before with this mobo, I was getting sick of this and moved to other USB 3.0 connector on the board. Still doesnt work.... Neither in bios all USB ports enabled ofc, cleared CMOS nothing.
Is there any fix or I have a bad motherboard?
Hi. I'm not talking about low BW devices.
Of course you can connect a controller pad and a mouse. Like on every Bluetooth since 2.0.
Problem are high BW devices like dualsense or other controllers.
Or a dualsense and a BT headset.
When you try that, Intel will fail in every aspect as cant keep the BW of those devices.
This is totally unacceptable for BT 5.0.
Even my BT 4.0 dongles can handle that. And Intel can't.
