I am really hope that you guys can help. I have owned my PC for about 4 months in this time my Computer will randomly blue screen (about once a week). It seems that the SSD (with the OS) seems to stop working. While the other drives continue to work till the OS fully crashes. (eg. watching a show off another drives show keeps going but then audio goes and then video and then blue screen) the drive is not recognized on restart (in the BIOS) unless I fully shut down the system.
I have switched out the power supply, the motherboard and ram.
As well I switched SSD 3 times 2 OCZ and one Intel.
Motherboard: Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z
Processor: Intel 2600k
Ram: 2* GSKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB PC3-10666 Dual Channel DDR3 Kit
SSD: OCZ Agility 3 Series SATA III Solid State Drive, 120GB
Download and install the 2.15 firmware update. First of all, this finally fixes a longstanding issue with the sandforce controllers that can cause the computer to randomly blue screen. (Remember to backup your data first)
2. Make sure that your Asus Maximus IV Extreme-Z board has Hot Plug turned on for your SSD in the UEFI. You will likely need to enable Advanced Mode to access this. It is located in the Advanced Tab under SATA Configuration.
Not turning that on can cause your computer to just randomly freeze to the point that you might just have to power it off.
You shouldn't have an issue after doing these 2 steps.
