Samsung 860 SSD causing MacBook Pro 2012 to freeze
I am having a problem with my newly installed Samsung 860 Evo SSD. I'm running Yosemite and Windows 7 with bootcamp. When running Yosemite, I'll get the beach ball after a few minutes or so and the OS becomes unresponsive which forces me to do a hard shutdown.
I've already replaced the SATA cable twice in a matter of two weeks. I bought one a $10 one from amazon and then the recommended one from ifixit, I've put electrical tape down under the cable and on both cables, both are causing the same problems. I turned TRIM on and still the problem persists. My bottom RAM slot is definitely finicky, but I loosened the screws on the RAM bay and have been fine for the last couple days so I don't believe it's a RAM issue. Not too sure what to do at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Sidenote: Oddly enough, my windows 7 partition works flawlessly.
I actually sent my 860 EVO in to samsung for "repairs" to see if that would do anything. They just updated the firmware supposedly which did nothing. Nothing left to do but try the crucial MX500.
