One strange thing I did notice, is it sees my SSD and HDD as removable storage. I get the "safely remove" icon in the system tray. Any ideas??

sounds like your using the marvel sata ports ....which is probably the root of all your problems...there have been lots of problems with marvel and ssd's...well with marvel ingeneral....best you can do is make sure you have the latest bios and drivers for marvel chipset and motherboard...also latest firmware for your ssd ...if you continue to have problems i would suggest plugging them into other ports until they get drivers/firmware straightened out


update...get latest firmware for your ssd for bsod problems

No, they are on the AMD ports, and the replacements OCZ are sending out already have the latest firmware. I am thinking its just the older drivers and a not so good sata cable.

And thanks for the link for the "Safely Remove".

How about load windows, run/find ssd tweak.exe and vid drivers only. No amd chip set/data drivers and see what happens?

Update. Hopefully I got things straightened out. I was still getting random BSODs even after changing the sata cables so I got a good clean boot and updated the firmware using the OCZ tool. This seems to have fixed the problem. We will see. Its amazing how they send me an upgraded version of this SSD that still needs its firmware updated. I just am not putting much faith in this SSD. Now getting everything loaded up and tweaked and after seeing how stable everything is, I will do some benches.
