Did you try it in both slots? That could determine if it's the drive or the mainboard.
Tried it in both slots. X2 and X4. SATA & PCIE as well. :( No luck.

Still, instal the bloatware, disable RGB and erase the software. You don:t have to run it entire time... I think.

Hi,
I'd say if another m.2 works the other should be rma'ed.
Hmm... should I buy another Identical one ? Or similar one from another brand ?

BSOD appears to have vanished. Playing the same game no problem now for multiple hours (whereas previous drive would crash consistently within 1 minute)

Any suggestion on what could have been wrong with my Gigabyte NVME ?

Hi,
Nope but you've done the work needed for rma :thumb:
Maybe the giga is just too fast and running over your system :/

The non rgb model is supposed to be really good not too many reviews on them though.

Thanks for your help. Appreciate it alot.

The new W/D Drive actually has the same reads, but 500mb/s higher writes. So its faster than the Gigabyte yet no problems whatsoever now (2 days later).

Ill RMA it after Christmas break.

Thank you sir.

What's wrong is you bought a *RGB* NVME. /thread.

I am wondering if that is actually the problem. Last ultimate test would be to disable it lol.

I didn't even think a RGB NVME Drive existed. I mean how is it addressable and where does it get power from? Dear god.
I thought we were at the end of the world when RGB HDMI and fan cables came out.

Just found this thread as I have been having scattered blue screens on my NVME pro 960 ... hoping this might help as the random bluescreens are seriously irritating!
Just going crazy with this BSOD. I have Samsung NVMe 970 EVO. After install windows to another drive, the BSOD gone. Anyone know what caused the problem? Windows? Mainboard with NVMe? Or NVMe itseft need replacement? Please!

I put a COUPLE of WD sn850's into an RP-17 and all it did was BSOD. Just ordered a 2TB sn570 and I hope it behaves.

After a bunch of searches this is the only thread I've seen with a similar issues. I was guessing that I put a Gen 4 SSD into a gen 3 slot and that was causing the issues but after reading this story I don't know.
