    Sounds ok as long as it doesnt crash. Some OCZ SSD's are known to crash systems

    Yeah, I'm just discovering that now with my Vertex 3 ***

    Blazing speed for a few hours then hang, BSOD

    hopefully fixed it though with some minor tweaks...

    Hi Deimos, did you manage to get your Vetex 3 stable and what did you do?

    My setup is a bit different from all the people complaining about lockups.

    My SATA3 controller is a Marvell (using an Asus P6X58D Premium), I installed the drivers for my Marvell controller, rebooted, went in to the properties for it and unticked both tick boxes, rebooted, reticked the 2 boxes, rebooted again, havn't had a freeze since.

    You also have to make sure the power saving setting to turn hard drives off is set to "never"

    Yeah, understandable, however, because I have Raid Arrays also, mine isnt so fast to boot....
