    Gigabyte x570 Aorus Master rev 1.2 on BIOS version F35e cold-boot issue.

    I had the cold-boot issue. It would need the CMOS battery pulled out to resurrect it, and some BIOS updates made it last longer.

    i9-10900K = $409.99. A bundle with Z490 AORUS Ultra = $599.99.

    This has to be the lowest price I've seen for a 10900K. It's even lower than Microcenter's prices. i9-10900K = $409.99 An even better deal would be to buy it in a bundle with a Gigabyte Z490 AOURS Ultra motherboard for $100.00 off. :eek: i9-10900K + Gigabyte AORUS Z490 Ultra = 599.99
