This is strange. I would recommend going to 5.0.1. It addresses some power management issues, however you tried this and it was still unstable correct? You stated that on the Intel ports too does the same thing?
How often does the reboot occurs? At this point, since you've tried Marvell and Intel ports, 3.2.0 and 5.0.1 firmware, we can try replacing the drive for you if you want to go that route.

Hello Ben, i juste send the RMA request! but i live in switzerland. Where is the RMA departement of patriot? USA? Europe?

It's in the Netherlands. So most likely, our RMA Department will contact you and have you ship and receive your item from this location.

thanks for the quick reply ben! i also noticed that since i enabled trim enabler last night, it randomly freezes for 30 seconds to 1 minute. looks like its best to turn it off.

I had a 60GB Patriot Pyro as my boot drive. Had the BSOD issues since I first bought it, usually when I was in the middle of something. Tried to update the firmware to 3.3.2. The updater seemed to work okay, detected the drive fine, but after it finished I got another BSOD, and the drive now no longer functions at all. Bios reports a Sandforce 0.0GB drive, but it does nothing. I've had to pull and ol mechanical drive out of a drawer to install windows on to get my computer running again.
Now, I contacted tech support, and the very first thing they said to do was get an RMA and ship the drive to Taiwan. WTF? Nothing I can try to fix it myself, nothing I can do to better diagnose it, no agent in my country I can take it to? I just have to cough up a wad of cash and spin my wheels for however many weeks or months it takes to process it, and not yet knowing if it's actually a warranty issue so I'm running the risk of not getting anything back? Between the cost of shipping and the pissfarting around, I may as well just buy a new one so I can fix things here. I'm thinking Kingston or Samsung...
