While the desktop is powered up and running, might want to see what the stickered side of the SSD feels like to the touch. Speaking of touch, what motherboard are you pairing the SSD with? Some heatsink designs that aid in SSD cooling, require you to remove the sticker off of the SSD to aid with heat transmission.

My motherboard is MSI Z270 Gaming M3. Nothing is working in the background, just some Firefox tabs and some Windows stuff maybe but nothing special from my side. I am using the bottom M.2 slot for my Evo Plus.
