    VIII ranger and ssd, sometimes not detected

    Hello

    I have a problem with mobo and ssd.
    After format and installation Win10 my PC sometimes run and sometimes SSD is not detected in BIOS. When is not detected PC automaticaly open BIOS and there is no my SSD in boot menu, but dvd and WDC black are.
    I changed from SATA port 1 to port 2 and problem gone, but after 1-3 days is same. Change port 2 to port 1 and again is OK for a while... and still DVD and WDC are detected but no SSD.
    Where can be a problem? Mobo or SSD?

    my PC:
    i7 6700k + Noctua nh-d15
    Maximus VIII ranger
    2x8 GB HyperX savage black 2800
    GF 980
    SSD - Plextor M6s 256gb
    WDC Black 1 tb
    LG BluRay
    Bequiet 650W Dark Power Pro 11 - platinum

    SSD, WDC, DVD - installed on Asus cables

    Thx for help. and btw I have a question. What is better SSD on sata or M.2 (write/read speed same on both)? And on this mobo I'll lost PCI-E x8 (2nd slot) when i use m.2?

    Try swapping SATA cables. Also make sure your SSD is the first entry in the boot device list.
