Default F60 problems

Hi!

I just bought a Corsair F60 SSD, and I have a problem.

Sometimes when I restart the PC, BIOS won't see my SSD.

My SSD's firmware is 1.1 (with Toolbox 1.1).

If I update the firmware, will the problem end? Also, which firmware should I update to, if needed?

Thank you!

Do you have the latest BIOS?
Is the SSD plugged into a AMD or Intel SATA port?

If its a SATA II drive use this FW.

I have the same problem.

Asrock Z87 Extreme4 Mainboard.

I use a Force F60 as a system drive and it is randomly not detected.
Sometimes it works from a cold boot sometimes it does not, rebooting usually never works at first try. When i reboot the system via reset button the SSD is usually detectet again and i can boot.

Latest firmware on the Force (2.4 i think) and latest UEFI on the Asrock.

But i suspect my force is faulty...

Hibernation wakeup always crashes and awfully often the startup repair pops up and i cant boot.
"Startup repair cannot fix this problem." and after a few tries of booting normally it usually works.

Works like a charm on a Samsung 840.
F60 is going into my netbook.


But honestly i feel screwed.
"Coincidentally" intel starts to comply more stricly to the sata specs when 99% of the sandforce 12xx/15xx are no more in their 3 year warranty limit.

My personal opinion is that sandforce knowingly disregarded sata specs and therefore designed an imcompatible product.
Just because it took a lot of time for people to find out is no reason for them to not be liable for their mistake.

I do not know what the legal situation is but from a legal laymans view it sounds like fraud.

@Toasted

I have 1.1, so it's not the latest. Should I update?

I use it with H81M-P33 motherboard, it's Intel.

Thank You!

I don't think a SSD firmware update would help as the H81 chips is part of the Haswell generation which is known to have issues with the controller used in the SSD. Refer to the thread link i posted above.
