Bsod friendly (and lockups too)
After fighting this controller for days now, i am about to give up. When it works, it quite speedy. However, it that is only about 5-10 minutes at a time, if the moon and the sun are properly aligned, and the wind is blowing from the west.Seriously, this is on its way back. There has been nothing but trouble with it, the drivers have been installed properly from their setup disk, the crucial ssd drive (256 mb) has be configured properly and is working well on the existing sata ii ports. I had tried just about everything for a win 7 64 bit ultimate installation. Actually, i had to install three times. The first was a result of the cloning kit (wouldn't even boot), so i started with a fresh install, the second was a trashed os (bsod), and the third was trashed os when the cpu froze solid, and then would not boot. That is when i uninstalled the controller and it has been fine since.My advice is to stay away from this controller. The price and performance is great, but the reliability is terrible.
