The 5000 hour bug

Greetings,

 

I've been using my M4 64Gb for over a year and didn't bother upgrading its firmware to avoid the 5k hour bug.

 

Yesterday my computer began to behave erratically, like freezing and stuff, but no BSOD.

 

I ran CrystalDiskInfo and saw that the disk had almost 5300 hours of use.   

 

1) Was the bug freezing my Windows?

2) Was this bug affecting any disk or was it random?

3) Wasn't it supposed to be exactly 5000 hours, not 5300?

 

Anyway, I upgraded firmware to 010G and things are stable now.

 

Should I expect an increase in perfomance?

 

Cheers.

Re: The 5000 hour bug

It should occur at 5184 hours as far as I know.

 

0009 introduced a performance increase so it depends on what you were on before.

I was on 0009.

 

I understand 0009 was released before 0309 (this one has the fix, not 0009).

 

Right?

Re: The 5000 hour bug

Yeah, 0009 and earlier had the 5184 hour bug. 0309 and later have it fixed.
