    Guys, X6 is down again. Had a similar lockup like I was having with old setup and windows got borked. So just installed windows again and once again setting up. This time I'm trying to set a few things differently from a SSD guide I found online. If not this thing is going out!

    I have no freakin' hope bro, it's been a few months already. I think this SSD is crapping out since the beginning I just never gave it thought.

    I did a while ago and it still happened, but I will try again if problem persists.

    I think a double dose of RMA is in order. Your hardware shouldn't be having those problems. Either the motherboard or the SSD is not quite right. Sucks to have to wait for RMA's but at least if there is a fault it can save you going up the wall.

    I don't think it would be the board because at first he was using a Gigabyte board and now the Asus board and BOTH gave the same problem

    Exactly. I tried some tweaks that hopefully fix the issue.

    yeah, but i did some tweaks now that had to do with writing to it and disabled defragmenting. Hopefully that was causing some sort of issues. Also page file, I had not disable that before on the SSD.

    Not sure bro. This time around I'm not installing MSN. My last install problems started after I opened MSN for the 2nd time. Not saying that's the cause, but if I can't use it, might as well not install it.

    Didn't know it was on a different board too. Man that sucks. Well, hope that guide you followed solves the trick.:toast:

    I sure hope so. It's something that happens over time, every install works at first, so I'm thinking it was something writing to the drive or something causing it to go ape shit. Hopefully the different things I tweaked and disabled did the trick. I'll keep you guys posted.
    KieX says thanks.

    If I told u.. I'd have to kill u
    Hey guys. Hope all is well with everyone. My father who is fighting brain cancer took a turn for the worse in the last 24 hrs. The brain tumor is not responding well to the radiation treatment and now they have located a 2nd small tumor in the back of his brain. The tumors are causing him to go into seizures. He told us "his time is short" that he can feel a change happening this morning. He's not giving up just yet, but his options are getting limited.
    Please keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. Keep crunching because our lives, all of our lives depend on it.
    [Ion], Mindweaver, King Wookie and 6 others say thanks.
