this is just an information to the admins:

i've the same problem with Force 3 120GB FW 1.3.3.

my 2nd Force 3 120 GB FW 5.0.5 was updated to 5.0.7 without any issues


so...i want to say SSD toolbox wouldn't update from 1.3.3 to 5.0.7 on X79 chipset

Yes, that is correct. The SSD toolbox does not support firmware updating from 1.3.X to 5.0.X


Please note that we currently do not support upgrading old 1.3.x FW to 5.0x FW on Sandforce based drives. Users of 1.3.x firmwares will still need to update to 5.xx firmwares using the Sandforce based FW update process found in the SSD Firmware Update section.


Unfortunately, you will need to update the SSD firmware on another computer as the manual tool (field updater) does not support X79 chipsets.
