Is it the boot drive? Can you try it when it is not.

Some interesting reading about the Sandforce (SF-2281) Controller
Intel I7 2600K, P8z68 Deluxe, Ultra X4 1050 Watt Power Supply, 16 GB Corsair Vengence 1866 Mhz Ram, Patriot Pyro 3 SSD 120 GB (FW 3.32), EVGA GTX570 HD 2560MB, CoolerMaster H100 liquid cooling, Coolermaster Full Tower, 2 Seagate 3 TB drives RAID 0 on Marvel controller, 2 Seagate 3 TB Drive on Intel contoller, BLU-RAY Burner, Win 7 Ultimate. Windows score 7.8. Running 4.7 GHz
i have the 60Gb Pyro SE SSD, and i have received the BSOD 5 times already in 2 weeks of usage. I am pretty sure my firmware is up to date as when i bought the SSD on the back of it it said, "Firmware Rev: 3.3.2"
Also, its kind of strange that the BSOD has only happened when i use Mircosoft office 2010.
i have windows 7 64bit home edition.
Anyone know how if maybe the ssd was not updated correctly?
Well tried removing the drivers, different ports with the anti-virus always off and no go. What do you think?

I'm also experiencing a 120gb Wildfire drive problem using the v3.3.2 firmware.
Motherboard - ASUS P8Z68-V (latest bios v902)
Intel RST v10.8.0.1003
I've tried both 6gb SATA ports (set as AHCI in bios), new cables, and a new motherboard. The drive is being used as the boot drive for a Windows 7 x64 machine, with a fresh installation, and the Wildfire will randomly cause a BSOD, and when it restarts the motherboard is unable to find the Wildfire drive until another cold boot is applied.
It took close to 2 hours to install windows fresh, as the drive kept "disappearing" during the installation
If you need further info or testing let me know.

I've had to give up using the wildfire SSD, it's just getting to frustrating with it BSOD'ing 5-10 times a day now. I'll just have to leave it until a more stable firmware is available. I even dropped the firmware back to 3.2 before upgrading it back to 3.3.2 just incase that might fix the problem, but no luck. I've gone back to a normal mechanical HDD, but I've left the SSD in place, just no SATA cables.
It's still loaded with Win7 x64 and latest drivers and patches, so I can fire it back up and do any testing if you want, otherwise i'll just leave it sitting there and hope for a future resolution.
The good news is, the mechanical HDD has been rock stable all day, something that the Wildfire hasn't been for the week I've had it.
