I would like to help on this too, I have 3 ocz drives 60GB and 120GB vertex 2 and a dead 120GB vertex 3 due to a power surge (my fault). The 60 vertex 2 and the 120GB vertex were Win OS drives, the 120GB vertex 2 (second hand) was for linux. Currently I'm using two samsung one 840evo and a 850pro both 256GB, also a corsair force gt 120GB on a intel x79. No mechanical drives on this PC since 2012. Besides that OCZ SSDs are currently difficult to find in my country (Portugal). And I take my PC with me on vacations.
