Mini freezes (spinning pinwheel) after FusionDrive upgrade

Hey guys!

I just recently installed a Kingston SSDNow V200 128GB with the iFixit dual hard drive kit, set up a core storag logical volume in terminal. Since then the mac freezes after about 5-10min of usage. The spinning rainbow wheel pops up and I have to hard reset the mac. Does this have something to do with the data chunks which have to be moved? I already tried splitting up the drive, format and reinstall. No luck...

Try to move the SSD in the lower of MacMini and the HDD in upper.

I have a MacMini late 2012 and seems that the iFixit cable has problems with SATA3 6Gb, in fact if you put the SSD on the original MacMini cable the problem does not occur.
