I've changed the sata cable... aaaand... BF3 hasn't crashed for an hour... I will do more testing when I get home, but now it's time to celebrate Friday. I THINK that this fixed it, but I will post if it didn't. But I think it has... I'm glad it works, but mad at myself for not trying that earlier... I am so... Stupid.
I hope that it works now, I THINK it will... Thank You so much for your help, so, so, so, so much. and sorry for wasting your time, when it seems that the solution was so simple...

Please do us a favor. Keep reporting back on whether the issue continues to be resolved.

The cable that you switched, was it a cable that was previously used for a hdd and you had no issues with it?

The reason why I ask is because a lot of people assume that a Sata cable is a sata cable because the connectors are the same. But a low quality Sata 3gb/s cable may not have enough shielding for the faster signal switching needed for 6gb/s.

I ran into this with a Sata cable bundled with my Asus p55 pro. Worked just fine with a hdd and my Intel x25-m. Bought a c300 and it would fluctuate between 3gb/s and 6gb/s in the Intel RST popup. I racked my brain trying to figure it out because people told me it wasn't the cable. Finally, I switched the cable one day to another 3gb/s cable and the problems went away.

Both of the cables were sata 6gb/s and the one that didn't work I just found in the box where I keep cables and I used it because I couldn't find another one, so I don't know if it was used before. The second one, I remembered that I put in the server, downstairs and it worked for months. That second one came bundled with my mobo.

I will sure report back to you guys. Thank You again for your help smile.gif

Yeah, the cable did fix the issue - it hasn't crashed since smile.gif
The lesson learnt from that would be to not use random cables that you find in your boxes tongue.gif
Thanks so much for your help again, especially E-Peen, thank You! thumb.gif
