We have carried out a Chandra data analysis of the prototype dwarf nova SS Cyg during quiescence and outburst. The SS Cyg data number 646 and 648 were obtained by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory on August 24, 2000 in quiescence and on September 14, 2000 in outburst were analysed. The evolution of the X-ray spectrum variation at very short periods was investigated. We discuss how situations that result from interaction are affected by the natural evolution of the system's attributes.
