Here is the question though. If my Evo 840 250gb that I keep some games on, came loose, would that actually be able to BSOD my system? My understanding is that data storage drives like this (as long as not being accessed at the moment) can be plugged in at anytime and it wont effect anything. Wouldnt it have to be my system drive that was loosely connected?

Is this the case?
Just a thought, Samsung has its Magician software have you checked if there are any firmware updates through there?

Plus about the loose cables, I've noticed that some SATA cables doesn't have the snap technique, that they only plug in easily and if you drag the cable too much they'll drop.

I havent installed the software, no. My old system (literally all I did was buy a new case and mobo for this build) ran perfectly fine a week ago without it. With this imparticular ssd the cables (doesnt matter which one I use) dont *snap* into place. I just have to shove them in there, and the cables are hidden behind my mobo and I have been opening the case a lot lately to put new fans in.

Does loose cable or out of date/missing Sata (intel rapid storage) drivers sound more like the culprit?

This is what I meant with the snap technique, basically that some doesn't have that clip which holds them in more securely:


But yes I do think that loose cables might cause errors. Though I'm not sure about the drivers but if there are updates there won't be anything wrong with updating them.
