    Default Meltdown... I need a SSD and a PSU Pronto

    Ok I have had 2 OCZ Vertex and 2 Barracudas go south on me since last December...

    The drives showed no signs of problems at all before dieing. I believe the power supply is spiking on shutdown and bricking my drives. Now this is just a guess but what else explains sudden death in hard drives?

    I am going to replace the PSU and the Raid 0 SSD's with a new larger single SSD and about a 800 watt PSU.

    The drive has to be at least 120GB and be Sandforce based and the PSU has to be Modular with at least 22 inch cord lengths.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Sorry to hear the drives dying I think mine is on the way out to I turned the comp on yesterday and I got stuck in a boot loop, once I got that fixed all my drivers seem to be systematically shutting down one by one, and now MS office won't open. I have done virus scans, maleware scans and nothing is found, I'm stuck at an impass here and am not sure what I can check next.

    OK, putting on my technician hat:

    1) What were you working on when this happened (if you can remember)?
    2) When is the last time you installed any software and/or driver? What was it?
    3) How long have you run your latest overclock, and has it benched stable (and for how long)?
    4) If you go into Safe Mode, do you get any instability? Have you tried running a benchmark in safe mode? What does "Event Viewer" in safe mode show? Any recent "errors" or "warnings"?
    4) Have you tried restoring your speed and voltages to purely stock and rebooting normally into Windows to see what happens?
    5) Have you run memtest+86 (from a bootable floppy/CD/US?
    6) Do you know how to use a multimeter to test your power supply voltages? If not, do you have a power supply tester like this? Or, do you have a "known good" PSU to test in your system?
    7) You have multiple hard drives (I assume in RAID) and SSDs. Have you done a drive level integrity test of your RAID array and SSDs (can be done via bootable disk)?

    I have additional questions, but would need to ascertain the above info. before drilling down.

    Nothing I just turned it on first thing in the am to check e-mails
    2) When is the last time you installed any software and/or driver? What was it?
    It was a new benchmark Lostplanet 2
    3) How long have you run your latest overclock, and has it benched stable (and for how long)?
    I don't keep it OC'ed just for benches
    4) If you go into Safe Mode, do you get any instability? Have you tried running a benchmark in safe mode? What does "Event Viewer" in safe mode show? Any recent "errors" or "warnings"?
    No instability, but then it is just the basics running no drivers ect. No benching here either, not sure where to check the event viewer.
    4) Have you tried restoring your speed and voltages to purely stock and rebooting normally into Windows to see what happens?
    Always do after I bench
    5) Have you run memtest+86 (from a bootable floppy/CD/US?
    Nope I will do this now
    6) Do you know how to use a multimeter to test your power supply voltages? If not, do you have a power supply tester like this? Or, do you have a "known good" PSU to test in your system?
    Silly question I review PSU's I know it's good as well
    7) You have multiple hard drives (I assume in RAID) and SSDs. Have you done a drive level integrity test of your RAID array and SSDs (can be done via bootable disk)?
    The SSD is the primary my storage is a raid

    I have additional questions, but would need to ascertain the above info. before drilling down.
