    New nvme drive causing WHEA Error BSODs

    I installed the drive on another PC and tried to copy files to it to test. It gets to a certain point and suddenly stops/errors out, so looks like it's a bad drive.

    Anyone else run into this issue? I have a Rocket 4 Plus I just installed and would get WHEA BSODs constantly. Putting back the old Inland nvme drive resolves the issue. Guessing the drive needs to be RMA'd, but wanted to crosss reference with others to see if maybe theres an open issue with...

    Can't say I've noticed this type of behavior with mine. Tho I'll be sure to be on the lookout for it. I have a 38GN950-B, not the GL950-G

    So who else ordered a Ryzen 5000 series CPU?

    Just picked up a 5800x. Gave up on a 5900x/5950x for now. I've got another system to get up and running with the 3700x it's replacing.

    10% more performance on Zen 3 with 4 sticks of ram?! - G Nexus

    10% more performance on Zen 3 with 4 sticks of ram?! - G Nexus

    Yes, which would turn it from dual rank to single rank. All things equal, dual rank configurations will outperform single rank.

    Fractal Design Meshify C Black for $59.99 + $5.99 shipping @ Newegg

    No issues with mine. Solid build quality, no misaligned holes. Front mesh pops out for cleaning if you remove the bottom filter and reach under the front panel. There will be a locking tab there you push to pop the front mesh out independently.
