The firmware isn't there anymore. There's only firmware for the s596 now

I have the MicroCenter 64gb and freakin Ubuntu completes the installation to it, but it won't boot. It just hangs at a blinking _

I'm going to try a different OS, and then see if i can find a new bios. The computer boots fine from the Live USB, so if this doesn't work I'll just have to drive up to MC to exchange it.

Just bought one of these drives. What firmware are you running? I have 3.4.3 on mine. I wanted to flash to the A-DATA 3.4.6 firmware, but I wanted to make sure since I read that that firmware causes heat problems?

thanks for that thread. My problem turned out not to be the drive, but rather my processor overheating because the stupid cooler wasn't pushed down all the way so I think the installations just weren't completing.

anyway, I decided not to upgrade the firmware and just leave it as is because of that.

I updated to 3.4.6 (from the A-DATA site) and I have no heat problems actually. Works just fine.

@senormoll: Have you tried benching your SSD yet? I compared my scores to some 60GB Sandforce drives in Intel systems and my scores seem a bit slower. I read its probably AMD's southbridges. Post your sig rig. I wanna compare.

This was the second Microcenter SSD I bought. The newest one is in my HTPC, so I haven't benched it as I'm more concerned with the low power than read times. I can tell you from the time the bios passes to Ubuntu until XBMC starts up is seriously like 12 seconds, and that's with a built-in 3 second login delay in case I want to log in as another user.

The system in my sig is my desktop, which uses the same drive for the OS (though bought like 6 months ago). When I benched that in Ubuntu, it achieved ~265/210 R/W or something, so I was more than satisfied. If I get a chance to bench it under Win7 I'll post the results
