To start off, my guitar has a Floyd, and I have been breaking a lot of high e strings. I was wondering if this is because of too much tension on it. I can raise my whammy bar completely and when the other strings are completely slack, the e string still has a pitch and some tension. Is this the source of my problem? If not, what might it be? If so, how can I fix it without monkeying around with my action?

The Truth: True. God is the CEO and Jesus does QC at Mesa...yup.

Maybe the saddle or other part touching the high e string has a burr that is 1) holding it in its place when you dive and 2) causing the strings to snap?. Just throwing it out there im not actually sure of your problem.
