PC really messed up

    Thanks, Art.

    HeyDontFall may want to think about adding some more cooling to the case. What do you think?

    I already have plenty of fans and clean it out every week, about to attempt to run MemTest. Also I bought this SSD back in August so I don't think Microcenter will replace it for me

    Sounds like you're doing everything you're supposed to be doing. you may need to get an RMA from the SSD manufacturer. I always try to have "spares" around so if something fails, I can replace it without having a system down while I'm waiting for the replacement to arrive. If you have an older hard drive, you could swap it in. I have images of my drives created in Acronis, stored on my server, so if a PC's drive fails, I put in a new one, boot from a flash drive, point to the server and reload the image to the new drive. Restoring a PC takes less than 1 hour this way...

    Ok. Hopefully it's the mem sticks. They're cheaper.

    Please let us know the outcome of the test and any progress.

    Actually a 128GB Samsung 840 EVO is on sale for $87.99 at Microcenter lol and how long should I run MemTest for? Also I will setup a RMA with Kingston later so I guess I have will two SSDs, a 500GB WD Blue internal drive and a 1TB External WD Drive

    Depends on whose software and extent/type of test. Anywhere from half hour to an hour.

    MemTest did 1 pass that took 46 minutes it says no errors! Doing another run right now

    RAM does go bad. I just had an old DDR2 stick "go bad" and the gold plated contacts were corroded. I cleaned it up but it still failed, so that happens from time to time. I'm a firm believer in premium power supplies because I believe an excellent quality power supply can prevent component failures.

    The Samsung SSD's are nice! I have purchased a few and they always perform very well! The Samsung "Magician" software that comes with them is pretty cool...

    Damn shame it had to be the SSD that died, good thing all my games and such are on my other two drives
