It appears I am far from the only one with this problem. I needed to update the firmware (which yes, people here had mentioned before). Problem I was having is I was doing everything they told me to do to the tee and when finished, it was still showing version 2.15 instead of 2.22.
I mean, I was getting progress bars, one firmware proggy was showing sectors being downloaded but I still kept reading 2.15 at the end. I hit my Vertex with like 5 firmware programs and one of them must of stuck cause now my SSD is working flawlessly and the BIOS is all at default settings, not even overclocked.
I still got that controller coming in so instead of plugging my SATA 6 SSD into my MOBO that has only SATA II's, I will be able to plug into a SATA 6 port that's plugged into my PCI-E 2.0.
Thanks to all who helped and hopefully my situation will help others.
