Do you have the latest firmware and toolbox ? You should not be getting BSODs. My only suggestion is to update the firmware and download the toolbox. Make sure you are in correct alignment, and trim is enabled. When you installed, was the SSD the only HD connected and is it on port 0 and were you in AHCI mode? To check alignment, open an elevated command prompt ( start- type cmd in the search box, right click it and select run as administrator) To see if trim is enabled, copy and paste this into the command window and press enter fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify if it returns DisableDeleteNotify = 0 then trim is enabled. In the window next type diskpart and press enter, when the cmd responds with diskpart, type list disk and press enter, it will list all disks in your machine. They will be numbered, find your SSD (disk 0 hopefully) based on the disk size, type select disk 0 (or the number of your SSD) then type list partition. It will respond with a size and an offset. The offset is your alignment. Any number divisible by 4 is OK. The window should look like this: You will notice that my alignment is 1024.

Also make sure disk defragmentation is off.

Read your motherboard manual. It will explain it there. I don't have an Asus board so don't really know.

OCZ SSD no thanks

Finally worked out how to complete my beautiful build that was constantly blue screening on boot up.

Step 1 --- Put OCZ Agility 120gb drive in Jiffy bag and send back to Ebuyer
Step 2 --- Order Corsair 120gbSSD
Step 3 --- Install Corsair drive and system works immediately

System been running 3 days straight....no probs

Cheers
