Silverstone FT-02 case
MSI P67A GD-65 mobo
2500k Intel SB cpu

I don't know why it would be the mobo. It only happens when the SSD is connected. It started once the SSD got hit by the BSOD problems. If I boot off the HDD's I have, everything is fine. If I boot off the broken SSD I the front USB ports and burner stops working.

weird. what intel port is the ssd on? oh, and what bios and orom is the board running?

Yeah if anything, write speed would be dropping with usage (and that's what trim and GC prevent). Read speed should eb unaffected so there's some other issue there.

The SSD was on the 1st Sata port, BIOS version is 1.9, I am not sure what orom is. The HDD is running off the same port now and everything works, if I swap back to the SSD, all the weird things start up again.

I've been running a Crucial C300 128gig together with an M4 128gig in RAID 0 on an Ausus P8P67 Pro (Rev. 3.1) since the middle of October... with zero problems and very high scores.
Since I can't read the hours on the raided drives using S.M.A.R.T I can only guess as to how many hours I've used up.
I'm curious if anyone with a C300 has seen this 5000+ hour problem?
Has anyone with two M4's in a RAID 0 run into this problem?
Will the new firmware update be good for the C300 as well?
Input is appreciated... and thanks to Crucial for working on this so diligently.

I guess that answers my question!
Good job, Crucial!!

I downloaded the firmware update. I had to switch the SATA port configuration in the BIOS from RAID to IDE in order for the firmware update to recognize the drives but after that everything went smoothly and after setting RAID in the BIOS again Windows started normally. I left the computer on for about 2 hours and everything seemed normal.
