    I know that there are users who installed SSDs to theirs imacs 2010 or 2011. I'd like to know does anyone have problems with OCZ Agility 3 or Vertex 3? Freezes, sleep problems?
    Because they are quite unstable on many PCs. But it is mostly motherboard, chipset incompatibility.

    I have the V3 in my 2011 iMac and it's been perfect. Boots lightning fast every time and programs open instantly. Haven't had any issues with it and I did a lot of extraneous writing when I was trying to install W7 through Bootcamp, but now that it's all set I can switch OS in a matter of seconds.

    Did you try to put it on HDD place?
    Asking cuz, I'm going to replace HDD with SSD. Not sure about fan issue with V3.

    Word of warning, I'm on my third Agility 3 in the last 2 months. The first two just failed without warning.

    It's a shame, the Vertex2E I had before was fine.
