Ok the second one should be the lower of the 2 drives on that board, I'd take it out, give the contacts a clean and put it back in and test it before putting the drive cover back on

Sounds like a possible bad drive then, I'd arrange an RM A through your order page of just the drive, they should send you a new one with DPD, who will then take the dodgy one back to PCS

Hi. When i buy a new NVMe SSD Drive. Would it be ok to use the same thermal pads thats on the Cover of the motherboard or install new pads. If i have to install pads. Which pads would i need to purchase. Thanks.
