Hi guys, well she's all fixed and up and running again. In the end I replaced each drive and bang she's working.

I attempted to access the drives using a external reader and while they are seen at the start, after about 30 mins, they fall over and crash. So figuring it was the drives after all.

Done a number of flights in DCS with no issues, and on the plus side, the boss has agreed that as parts have started to fail on the pc, then she thinks it's time I start planning and saving for a full build, so I'm not a grumpy bugger. ( her words )

Thanks for all the help and advice guys.

If all 3 drives failed , that would worry the hell out of me (PSU could be dodgy or something)

Glad you are back with us buddy

There's a good chance the drives themselves were not the reason for their failure.
I would definitely check the PSU ( I would actually replace it right away ).

3 drives don't go south at the same time usually, it does happen but it is very very seldom.

Had you raided them ? That, and all same spec and model, may make it more likely to happen.

^^^This.

I agree 100%. There is a good chance of that PSU causing further casualties in the very near future.

Ok guys, advice heard and acted on. New PSU ordered and on way. All the drives were on the same Sata cable so I've ordered a new one of those as well.

Better to be safe than sorry.

Are you using this PC for some production activities like video editing , or anything else CPU hungry? If not then by all means that processor does not worth 1000 dollars at all. 10/20 cores is something for production computers and will not give any advantage on gaming world for the next 3 to 5 years for sure.
Instead you should focus on the highest core speed capable processor with overclocking capabilities, like a 7700k for example.

I9 series is a poor response from Intel for the newest AMD Threadripper ... is more like marketing.

If you still have too much money to spent ... well is all your option !
