I put a new PC together and it all worked fine for a month.
OS and game + files are all on a single SAMSUNG 980 PRO 500GB SSD.
Then one day my computer rebooted suddenly and the SSD was no longer detect in the BIOS.

I reinstalled the SSD to no avail. SSD was tested on another computer and works fine.
I sent the Z590I AORUS ULTRA motherboard to Gigabyte for inspection. They sent it back and when I put the computer back together, it worked fine once again.
Then a week later the same problem occurred.

I am thinking of sending the motherboard back once again and this time asking for a refund, and get a different motherboard altogether (like an ASRock Z590M-ITX/AX which has good reviews).

Before I do so, I'd like to know if I've overlooked anything.

Additional details:
BIOS updated to latest version (F5)
PC running stock, not OC. No abnormal temp detected.
