having the same issue here. i rma'd the drive and got a new one. the new drive (force3 120gb) has newest firmware (5.02).

using it with intel ich10r sata controller. windows (7 x64) installs but randomly bsod afterwords. have tried using every sata port on the mobo. bought a new, short, sata cable. erased the drive. using ahci mode. tried with windows drivers and intel drivers. still, random bsod (never takes too long)

put the HDD back in. install windows. works fine. i have invested hours following the tips on the forums and not sure how much time the $%^ thing is worth.

its for sale on craiglist. help still appreciated if it comes in time to be useful.

Hi Droflim,

did You try the Windows registry workaround I pointed to in my previous post? It looks like it really works (2 days since I applied it and no freezes / BSODs whatsoever). Using latest (11.2.0.1006) Intel RST drivers.

Worth giving it a try before raising white flag...

Best regards,
Filippo

Hi guys,

I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to resume it because I noticed that Intel recently released a new version of its RST drivers, 11.5.0.1207.

Beside offering compatibility with Windows 8 (for those of You that are interested in it), I realized that these new drivers seem to manage correctly power management on the Force GT SSD.

So far I was able to overcome the stability problems with the registry fix I linked in one of my previous posts in this thread; but with these new drivers I'm getting no more freezes/BSODs, even after removing the registry fix.

Maybe it's the right time? :) Let's hope so.

Best regards
Filippo

IRST 11.5.0.120​7 Removed by Intel, Memory Leak and Other Issues
08-04-201209:42 PM

Intel has removed the latest version of IRST, 11.5.0.1207, from their download pages. It has multiple issues including:

Memory leaks. Memory usage climbs slowly higher and higher for no good reason.

Some applications will BSOD when they are started when using this driver.

Windows will see the SATA interface as a SCSI controller with this driver, which is false.

The performance of this driver is below average.

There is nothing to be gained using this driver, so if you're using it, install an earlier version such as 11.2.0.1006, which now is the latest IRST driver Intel has available on their download pages. You don't need to uninstall it, and doing so will cause big problems if you have any RAID volumes on the Intel chipset. You can install an earlier version over 11.5, and you will see a warning displayed that you are installing an older driver. Just continue the installation and it will complete fine.

The only way you would have this driver is if you installed it yourself by downloading it from Intel, as no mother board manufactures have it on their download pages or software installation disks. It's possible that some automated driver update process could have installed it, but you should know if that was run on your PC.

Well, I've found these drivers in the Intel website. Therefore, I can imagine that Intel fixed the mentioned issues and re-posted the driver.

By the way, I just checked the Intel website, the drivers are still there available for download.

Anyway, thanks for the info, I'll keep an eye on the memory consumption. So far, no BSODs on any application.

Regards,
Filippo

Anyway, the note you mentioned speaks about the RAID variant of the driver. I downloaded the AHCI variant.

I don't know if the two are actually different drivers or if there are other reasons why these should be separate downloads.

By the way, it's fun: the drivers that cause headaches to anyone else work (at least, apparently) fine for me and vice versa :)

Regards,
Filippo

Look at the date of the file though, it's from 2 weeks ago. Presumably Intel forgot to remove it from all the sites, that's all.
