1. Did you update your marvell driver?
2. Did you set your Sata port (connected to the SSD) to ACHI or Raid in your BIOS?
3. Is the SSD properly connected to your Sata Cable and Power cord?
4. Have you checked Mushkin's website to see if others are having the same problem, or if there's a fix?
Like direraptor22 said earlier. HDTune is reading the temperature wrong. You're SSD isn't that hot, so don't worry about it.
Typically, you can't crash an SSD with a benchmark. I've never seen it happen. Normally, when I see a screen lockup with no BSoD or Black screen, it's typically a graphics issue, but that's if your playing a PC Game or program that utilizes the gpus. When does your screen lockup? What are you doing just when it's about to lock up?
