Windows 7: Is my SSD going Bad ???

Is my SSD going Bad ???

Hey guys since I moved over to Intel seems like my components have been having a bad taste in there mouth using this particular board

I think my SSD might be messed up and corrupted could be the host of my issues

I had issues with the CCC not being able to install I went to re install another driver per playing Bioshock Infinite my Gpu driver or direct x 11 crashed and asked to update it

trying to update was no go I had to do a system restore because the CCC kept freezing and going non responsive here is a screen shot of the timings and these are bad compared to before this is what the timings are supposed to be OCZ Agility 4 (EOL)

Also after the bootable update it changed the SSD from Agility 4 to 3

How is that even possible ????

Is there any way to go back to the old firmware? Also, you may want to try the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver instead of the generic Microsoft one. For the Z77 Sabertooth, I've found Version 11.1.0.1006 to work really well. I've not even bothered updating to the new Intel RST driver. Here is the driver page for the Sabertooth: Asus Z77 Sabertooth Support . The Rapid Storage Technology driver is under the SATA section.

Have you checked to see if TRIM is enabled?

Also, do make sure that your SSD is connected to a native Intel SATA3 port. Do not use any of the third party ports.

Also, I would install the AHCI drivers in Windows, and then set the SATA port mode to AHCI in BIOS.

Another thing you could try is in the BIOS, under the drive's properties, changed the driver type to Solid State Drive/r if there is an option to do so.

One more thing, if RAID is enabled, disable it for that port in BIOS.

You should be able to flash it with what was on there if you can find the file, I believe. Is this where you went and is this the firmware you upgraded to? OCZ Toolbox Firmware and Support

I did that didn't have a option for that it had all the functions secure erase upgrade and temps

My SSD supposedly has the worst support because you have to use it as a second drive for it to even do a update the bootable works barley
