You've got it with a OS so realistically, just windows update (repeatedly) including reboots, once its telling you no more updates reboot again and check to make sure nothings appearing.

Would also check Nvidia to make sure you are on the latest GPU drivers, win update doesnt tend to be completely up to date with those where you can get new ones so frequently.

The samsung drives also have something called "Samsung magician" which you would have to load yourself, it can check the M2 and allows firmware updates etc, not sure if theres a similar software package for the corsair ones.

If you havent already got a laptop stand thats also a good idea

Thank you again, massively appreciate your replies. I'll take that all on board and report back if I have any trouble.

If it's not built yet I would swap out your storage. You've opted for a slower primary drive than secondary. The Samsung 980 Pro would be the better option for the primary.

Depending on the price difference, the Firecuda 520 may be better value for the second drive also :)

Already built and with me bud. Primary is just a temp storage/OS drive anyway. Secondary drive is where I'll store all my games, etc.
