I've recently purchased a Kingston A400 240GB SSD and it was running fine with no problems at all, week after it I've installed msi b450 gaming plus max+ryzen 3600 and all of a sudden I've started to get BSOD multiple times a day with different error codes (memory management, kernel data inpage, IRQL not less or equal..this is what I remember)
Now I don't know if its because the new ssd or the new mobo or even something else..I ran memtest86 for 4 passes both at stock and OC to 2666 with no errors, I reinstalled windows 10 but no luck, updated to the latest bios from MSI still same story
I am going to run disk check now and I think it will be my last resort, otherwise I am suspecting bios problem since MSI having a bad time right now with their BIOS
Its worth mentioning that my old ssd (Intel 535 120GB) was failing to boot from time to time and it would recover by it self randomly, either within minutes after shutting down or days..but now the new Kingston ssd is where windows is installed and the old ssd still working fine as a storage device (which is connected to the new motherboard), now it wouldn't be a problem to connect it to the mobo since it's no longer the booting device right?
Can someone please tell me what is going on especially that I am still in the 14 days return period, thanks in advance :)

Ryzen 5 3600
MSI b450 gaming plus max
Seasonic focus plus platinum
Zotac Gtx 1080 mini
Cheap generic 2*4GB ddr4 Kingston @2133 (Hynix MFR )
Booting device: Kingston a400 240GB ssd
Other storage devices: Intel 535 120GB ssd+ WD blue 1TB

Can you successfully install Windows? If so, have you installed the latest chipset drivers from AMD?

My next guess after you passed memtest86 would be a bad SATA cable causing errors and maybe data corruption. Try a new cable, but you'll probably want to do a quick format and fresh OS install as well if that does turn out to be the cause.

Yeah no problem with installing at all apart from a weird coloring bug during the process with the latest windows update, I can usey PC sometimes for hours with no problem and sometimes within few minutes after logging in to windows
And no I didn't install any chipset drivers, I will give it a try now

OK I will try the cables that came with the mobo

Quick update: disk check gave no errors for both SSDs, I am going to check the cables now
