On March 28, 2019, I built the PC I am currently using. Last week, however, I ran into a serious problem. The ram I was using, the G.Skill Sniper X @ 3466mhz, stopped working correctly. I began to start having BSOD's related to ram problems. It was confirmed that my ram was faulty after I ran a system memory diagnostic. My ram was outside of the return window and if I sent my ram in to see if it was faulty, I would be without a computer which I need for school.
I decided to buy new ram for my computer, which was the G.Skill Trident Z red. I have never been a huger fan of RGB, so I didn't care for the lack of RGB in my build. I decided to also upgrade to 32gb of ram because I will be doing some CAD and virtual machines in my degree field. Lastly, last month I decided to buy the WD SN750 M.2 because I wanted an even faster boot time compared to the Kingston A400 I have installed. I will warn you that WD m.2's and MSI motherboards don't mix very well. If you put your PC to sleep, upon wake the PC will not recognize the M.2 and you will get a BSOD. Restarting the PC will fix the error.
Differences compared to the last build: G.Skill Trident Z installed and installed an WD SN750 M.2.
