Question New SSDs Disconnects Randomly

I've been having an annoying problem with adding new internal storage to my computer. Recently got a new Mushkin Source-II internal SSD with 2TBs. Went through and formatted it, which works fine. For some reason after an arbitrary amount of time passes (usually about 2 hours to almost half of a day), it disconnects and reconnects itself. Troubleshooting is almost impossible just because it is completely random when this happens.

I've tried a few things such a replacing the SATA cable, opening my tower case to see if it's somehow overheating, and tried to update the firmware of the SSD. I also bought a new SSD (HP S700 2.5 1TB) to see if it was the Mushkin's fault, and unfortunately it wasn't.
I also have an External Hard Drive and that works normally, so it seems to be just new internal storage.

It seems to be something about my computer itself and I don't know where to start. I have a feeling it might be bios but I have no idea where to start with that, and I checked the health of my SSDs using Crystal Disk is everything is what it should be at.

Here's my PC Config:
Windows 10 64-bit
BaseBoard Manufacturer Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
BaseBoard Product Z170X-Gaming 7
BIOS: BIOS Date: 11/04/16 19:43:18 Ver: 05.0000C
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-770K CPU @ 4.20GHz (8 CPUs), ~4.2GHz
Memeory: 16384MB RAM

Hopefully I explained my situation easily and it's understandable, if not, please ask if you need more info.

Look in the power options.
There is a setting for turning off a hdd.
See if it has any effect on your ssd.
