Windows 7: Win7 x64 hangs during idle

I have a "hunch" that there's a problem with your SSD - but not enough of a hunch to say it's bad.

I would:
- remove Disk 2 (unplug both power and data cables)
- remove SSD and try booting with disk 1 in all different channels (it isn't bootable, so you won't get anywhere).
- then remove disk 1 and try booting in each channel with SSD.
- if really curious, disconnect Disk 1 and the SSD, then try booting with Disk 2 (it'll boot, but could crash) - then try it on all channels.

Just curious as to what would be accomplished by trying to boot with Disk 2? I've tried booting it in both Intel and Marvell channels and it bluescreens after the Windows loading screen.

I'd be curious if there were any differences between Disk 1 and Disk 2 when booting. The only (significant) difference (IMO) is that Disk 2 is bootable, while Disk 1 isn't. That'd explain the BSOD after the attempt at logon. It should also (I presume) then BSOD when attempting to go into Safe Mode (with Disk 2).

Basically, the more different things that you try, the more likely you are to notice a pattern (such as Disk 1 and Disk 2 at least try to boot, while the SSD gives you freezes. And, if the SSD freezes on more than one controller - then the problem is most likely with the SSD (or the files on it if you're working in Windows) rather than a controller problem.

Another thing to try (although I'm not familiar with it) is to see what the SSD does when a bootable Linux distro is used (and if it freezes there also).

Is the drive still under warranty? If so, I'd contact Corsair to see what the requirements are to return it for another one. That'd be the best test IMO.

The SSD never gives me problems when booting up, in fact it takes less than 30 seconds from powered off to desktop. It only gives me problems when I try to run a benchmark on it and the occasional disappearance from the boot devices.

Edit: I went to the gym for about an hour and when I came back, my computer had crashed and my boot SSD didn't show up in the bios until I powered down and waited a couple minutes.

I'm going to RMA the mobo and hopefully the SSD so hopefully that will fix the problem.

A couple more problems that I have noticed as well.

Sometimes when I plug in a flash drive or my iPod nano, my Razer Blackwidow Ultimate usb keyboard disconnects and won't turn back on unless I unplug it and wait a minute before plugging it back in.

Also, my computer doesn't crash when I play a movie from my storage drive and leave it alone... I want to toss my compy out the window grr.

The forums have seen lot's of issues with SSD's recently. This is enough to convince me that I shouldn't convert my system over to an SSD yet. Maybe I'll try it after Win8 has been out for a while.

Yeah, stick with Raid for now lol. I've never had so many problems with a build before.

Edit: Intel SSD's seem to be the most reliable atm too.
