Should I RMA my SSD?

I recently built a gaming PC using the Patriot Pyro SSD. At least once a day I get a complete system hang, and have to restart the computer. When I do, the SSD is not recognized as a boot device unless I completely power down the computer and turn it back on. Is this an issue with the Mobo, or something wrong with the SSD? Should I RMA it?

More about should
  1. I am also getting daily BSOD. It says something about a crash dump. When it restarts, it says no bootable drive, and I have to power off and power back on.
  2. Yes those ssd have had some issues. Try a fresh install. If problem persists RMA.
  3. The first thing I'd try is a different SATA cable in a different port. I had a similar problem and it ended up being a bad cable.

    Check out the Firmware on the SSD and see if it requires updating. If it needs updating update it. The problem could also be the Motherboard. If you have a HDD that you can use as a test drive try doing a test install and see if the problem continues.
  5. Lots of issues with the current crop of SSDs. As noted you could need a firmware update. Check with your SSD manufacturer.
  6. Well, I just updated the firmware. The list of fixes under the new revision says it fixes the exact problems I've been having. Will update you guys in a couple days to see if I have any more crashes.
