i wanna think its just the fact that it is still "new" technology and hasn't been perfected yet... but maybe there is a fix i don't know about?

i get crashes on the startup of games as well as random crashes...

SSD is not new technology. The basic tech has been around since the 1950s. Also games crashing could be due to many reasons including, believe it or not, overclocking.

i know it's not new technology, that's why i put the "quotes" up.

as for the overclocking, are you referring to cpu or gpu oc's?

We can't really tell since saying games crashing on ssd is not really helpful. Have either of you actually tried to look up the reason they are crashing via Event Viewer?

Yeah, I'd argue overclocks are unstable, games have bugs, some device driver is causing it (my backup rig's monitor driver for example - if I install it and have my onboard audio enabled, it blue screens. if I use a sound card, no blue screens) or any other number of things. Not just because you have an SSD. I have 2, and they don't cause games to crash.

Here's something that might help.

Steam is on my Vertex 3. Win7 is on my M4. If I launch a game, it crashes the first time. If I open windows explorer and click on the Vertex, it won't crash when I launch a game.

I have my secondary hard drives set to power down after 20 minutes. I believe that what happens is when the drive does not respond while it wakes up, the game will crash.

Maybe that helps, maybe it doesn't. But I don't believe it's the ssd causing the crash if it's doesn't.
