I am attempting to use the mSATA 240GB SSD on a Gigabyte GA-H77TN motherboard. Windows 7 x64 will install correctly on this drive and will survive a few reboots but ultimately fails in the boot process and blue screens. Also, when this hard drive is installed, the system sensor readings are off. For example, without the SSD installed, the System Temperature reads about 30 C and the CPU reads about the same. The CPU fan reads at about 1000 RPM and the System Fan is N/A (none installed, the board is sitting on a workbench). When this SSD is installed the system temperature shoots up to 255+ C and I am getting readings for a System Fan that is not installed.
Everything works fine when I put a Micron mSATA SSD in this same motherboard. All sensor readings are correct and I do not have any trouble with the OS. I have tried several duplicate Motherboards and several duplicate SSDs, all cases have the same problem. The problem is with this hard drive and this motherboard.
Thank you for any help,

I have basically the same issue with 128GB CT128M4SSD3 mSATA on a Gigabyte GA-H77TN.
Even in bios the fan and temperature are not right. I have found that inserting mSATA somehow blocks the IT8728F chip on the motherboard that is dealing with fan and temperature stuff.
Upgraded the MB bios from F1 to F2, didnt help. Also my GA-H77TN is rev 1.0.
Kevin could you check what bios and mSATA firmware you have?
Mine has 07MH, I did try downgrading to 04MH and again to 07MH but still issue remains the same.

I have tried both of the BIOS versions to no avail. There is only one currently released firmware version for the mSATA drive that I am using. If I get anywhere with this I will respond here.

I made an query with crucial support and got a responce:
For the M500 mSATA a new firmware revision has been released and this addresses issues such as smart readings. I would recommend that you upgrade the firmware on the M500 drive to version MU03. You will find the firmware here:
Could you check which version you are using and if this MU03 solves it.

Thank you for posting that link reigo. Bobmer, I would also recommend updating your system to the firmware that was just released on September 24th. It should solve the issues with the smart readings and the problems with temperature that you have experienced. Please let us know if you are still having issues after updating the firmware.
