Running on Ubuntu desktop
I have updated the OS and Bios. Plotting was fine initially. But now Nvme keeps crashing. The plot doesn’t even get to 1% and Nvme crashes. It doesn’t show up in the Ubuntu environment. But when I restart, it shows up. When I start plotting again, it goes away. I did notice that the Nvme drive was getting hot, so I added an extra small fan shooting cold air towards the general area of Nvme. Has not worked, the Nvme keeps crashing within seconds of me starting the plot. I start with 1 plot and 200 minute buffer time between each plot.
I have initiated the RMA for the Nvme and ordered qty 2 of HP EX950 M.2 2280 2TB PCle Gen3 x4, NVMe1.3 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 5MS24AA#ABC.
Ask: Is there anything I can do to stop the Nvme from Crashing? The ETA for the replacement drive is in 10 days, don’t want to waste those 10 days and not plot.
Is the HP EX950 a better option than XPG SX8100?
Edit 3: Cancelled th order for HP EX950 and went with 2x Black SN850 2TB
Yeah, I am guessing the Nvme is no good. Initiated the return. Should be receiving my new Nvme early next week. Ordered 2x WD 850 Black 2TB. Will update the situation after few days of testing. If anyone else knows anything, please help. Thanks!
