I worked with one of the Intel techs and we were able to reproduce this issue. We also tried using a 530 Series mSATA SSD on a DZ87KLT-75K board and it worked just fine. As well, I use a 525 Series mSATA SSD with my DZ87KLT-75K all the time. Bottom line, this appears to be an issue that is isolated to the DZ87MC Board's BIOS and to 530 Series mSATA SSDs. He has reported the issue to the factory for cause analysis. Stay tuned; hopefully this will result in a BIOS fix.
Note that your issue with Crucial drives failing likely has nothing to do with this issue with Intel 530 Series mSATA SSDs. Regardless, he is asking the factory to look into this as part of their testing of any fix. We'll see whether it (also) fixes that issue...
I'm having the same issue and would like to be informed of any fix please.
I could find no resolution for the DH87MC/SSD conundrum, so I changed boards to a DH87RL (µATX) and everything works just fine now. The tradeoff is basically fewer USB ports, which I can live with.
Good to hear that DH87RL is working fine with your mSATA SSD.
Any additional quesitons or inquiries that could be present, do not hesitate to contact the Intel Communities back.
