    Hello, this post is somewhat related to the conclusion from (http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/tips-for-keeping-cf-19-mk6-cool.833137/).

    I currently have a CF-19 Mk6 outfitted with an ADATA SU800 512GB SSD. Despite underclocking the toughbook, right now, if I do any kind of long-term operation with the AC adapter the toughbook ends up freezing and I have to hard-reboot it.

    The most significant thing I notice in the logs during freeze/crash is that the SSD is heating up and the SSD decideds to call it quits.

    Right now, I am only using the CF-19 with the HDD port and SD/wifi switch port open to let some air circulate (quite effective, CPU at ~80 degrees Celsius and SSD at ~50 degrees Celsius).

    Are there special low power, metal SSDs that are supposed to be used for CF-19?

    I am aware of the specs but I also know they are bologne. I've had 2 SU800s swapped out under warranty because they died on me. The one in toughbook actually is a brand new replaced one sent back from ADATA.

    Maybe 70 C for a very very short time?

    That is possible but even with a HDD, it never reached beyond 60 degrees Celsius, according to the internal HDD thermometer anyways.

    I've had very good luck with Samsung SSDs. Have not dealt with your heat issue in a newer CF-19, no experience with heat issues, but overall Samsung SSD and memory stick quality has been very good.

    Its ironic that high temperatures cause freezing!

    Maybe taking the SSD out of it's factory case will allow it will cool better that way the heat isn't stuck inside the SSD case, or even add some passive cooling fins on the main SSD board, there is lots of room inside the hard drive caddy.
