Well, I'm having a bit of trouble getting the firmware updated. I tried putting it in my other PC to run the program but apparently there is an issue. That system has an old Abit IP35 board which recognizes the Vertex but doesn't work when I run the firmware update. The Toolbox downloads Everest then says something like 252 downloaded, then prompts me to reboot to finish the update. But when I reboot nothing happens.
Looked around the OCZ forums and found some similar threads. Getting kind of late tonight so I might try messing with it again tomorrow.
