    Equivalent of heads would be "Pipes" on SSD

    Don't go worrying too much about it, you know what they say about outcome of an experiment can change when observed. It certainly is true about photons at least.

    8 days give or take, no issues so far with different SSD. Now did take 2 weeks for this to happen once with older SSD, so let's keep this going bit longer. Then i will RMA the suspected SSD.

    Been 2 weeks since change to another SSD on same port, all is good. Looks like will RMA the other SSD. Strange because SSD just brick all at once, not usually intermittently. Keep fingers crossed that this port is truly o.k..
