  1. Well, after 3 months, I think I fixed the problem. I thought it was: 1. The memory 2. The GPU 3. The USB ports 4. SATA connection to the SSDs being dropped. But when last week I was able to restart it by tapping on the Tempered Glass, then it had to be something loose. SO, I checked: 1. The Front Panel Connector (maybe a shorted Power or Reset wire) 2. The SATA cables to the SSDs then, i found the problem: The 24pin power connector. It was loose, but it never clicks in. So I reseated it and it's seems fine. Played Avengers, MS Flight Sim 2
  2. I don't think it's ffmpeg any more, since I haven't used it and it still reboots. I took out the USB dongle for keyboard/mouse and went back to wired. When it reboots and gets to the Windows login screen, I have to unplug and replug in the keyboard for it to be usable.
  3. Okay, so far I cleaned all the memory sticks/connectors (Nothing was visible there). Ran memtest86 (4 passes) - no errors. I can't take it apart until Friday to reseat all cables and cards, but.... It basically seems to crash whenever I run ffmpeg (to convert h264 to h265). Sometimes it will do a few files then crash, sometimes it will crash in the middle of the first file. (I'm not using the hardware encoder option in ffmpeg).
  4. Started gathering parts last Black Friday. Built PC in June. Ryzen 2700x Gigabyte Asorus B450 Pro Wifi 32 GB Geil Ram (4x8) MSI rx570 Gaming 8GB (used) EVGA 650 G1 SK Hynix 1TB SSD (Boot Drive) Intel 660p 1TB (Data Drive) Thermaltake VG200 Case Mushkin 1TB SSD (for Photo/Music Storage) TeamGroup 1TB SSD (for Scratch Drives for Adobe Photoshop/Premiere) WD 8TB for TV/Movies Here's the problem: Computer would reboot out of nowhere. Sometimes playing a game, more often, running ffmpeg to convert files from h264 to h265. With maybe
  5. Some people have claimed that the little circuit board that comes with the externals includes encryption circuitry and that's why they come up as needing to be formatted. But the list of external cases/encrypted is not around.
  6. Do you mean data or power? I know about the 3.3 v power cycle thing.
  7. If I shuck a WD Elements (8TB) that has data on it already, will the data be there when I put it in the PC (SATA)?
  8. Thank you all who responded. Since I (currently) do not game (that could change if I'm stuck in the house much longer), I think the Intel for Windows is the way for me to go. The smaller files Windows accesses constantly is better on the M.2. Thanks again.
  9. Almost done building new PC. Ryzen 7 2700x (bought it in Dec $135) 32GB Geil Ram 3200 MSI RX570 8GB (with twin Frozrs) I have an Intel 660p 1TB or a Hynix S31 1TB. Which should I use to boot into Windows (10) with? Why? What should I use the other one for? I use LR, PS, Pr and have a Plex Server.
