What AHCI drivers were you using to run the SSD? Was AHCI set in the BIOS? Were you running off of the AMD SATA ports? There is very little reason for a problem like this and it is rather odd. It could be a faulty drive, but Intel is known for it's quality control and that makes it even more odd...
