I recently had my last of two raptors failing on me, so I decided to buy an SSD, specifically Intel 520 SDD 240gb.
This is my computer config (without the raptors):
EVGA nForce 780i
Intel Core 2 Duo e8400 @ 3.0
Zotac GeForce 9800GTX 512MB
Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5 G (8 gb)
Zalman GT1000 Gaming Case
Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit
ThermalTake BlueOrb FX Cooler
2 x WD Raptor X 150GB in raid 0 config
750GB SAMSUNG SPINPOINT F1 32MB 7200RPM
OCZ GameXStream 850 watt
After getting the SSD it didn't really work in Windows Vista Ultimate. It kept freezing even before booting Windows. Now I don't want to buy W7 at a high price just before launch of 8 so I got Windows 8 as a preview release.
My PC still freeze a lot. I can boot, but if I start a video or stay more than 15-20 minutes it freezes. I did read about 520 that it has had some freeze problems in the past. Admittedly I have read dozens of threads, I tried a reg. edit. I updated to latest bios update which is from end of 2009 I believe.
After installing Windows 8 I have taken down latest nvidia drivers, mobo drivers, I flashed the SSD rom with the latest version.
WHAT TO DO???
to be honest I am so desperate I feel like buying a new PC alltogether and / or returning this SSD. The only reason I choose SSD was because two raptors had failed on me. I often leave my PC on during the day and it is often used a lot for heavy tasks, so I would prefer a quick hard drive.
Should I return the new SSD, get a new PC (not a planned expense right now) and/or get a new raptor??
