a bit too much variables to be comfortable with in my humble opinion

Yeah, I'm not sure if it's the mobo or the SSD.

I've done 7 reinstalls now, following OCZ's support forum's procedures with each time a slightly different procedure as suggested. Doesn't change a thing.

I'm going to drop it off at Alternate on tuesday, let them figure it out. They have spare parts so should be straight forward for them.

If anyone is keeping score: Firmware 2.11 seems to be solving a lot of people's problems for Vertex 3 drives.

So finally Deus Ex HR comes out, and I'm playing it on my new rig. Sadly the thing crashes... First infrequently now frequently.

The 570 GTX's GPU is constantly at 100% and reading out at 64% fan speed & 85c. Is the GPU barfing or is the SSD back to cause issues? *sigh* More debugging ahead of me...

Really not having much luck with this new PC. I shall name it Agrajag...

Nah, I found some posts about how a bunch of MSI cards went out with wrong BIOS settings. Supposedly the "OC" cards went out with too low voltage settings etc. Couldn't run the "OC" settings.

To test I downclocked to standard 570 GTX speeds and it's been running solid for a day now. And with 'sane' GPU load levels etc (eventhough it now has less 'computing power').

Will need to flash the GTX's BIOS to see if that makes it run normally again.

Updated to next BIOS. Let's see if this thing works.

ATM I'm getting 6192 points in 3DMARK11 with everything stock and several programs open in the background.
