Why is my HDD corrupting? - Page 2

post #11 of 30
If you're overclocking with the bclk, make sure to lock the pci-e at 100MHz. SATA (runs on the pci-e lane) is intolerant to frequency changes. Changes from stock can lead to data corruption.

Have you verified your pci-e speed at all?

The OP changed it back to 100, and corruption still occured. This is likely unstable/faulty ram corrupting data. I've had it happen before on an AMD rig since the Deneb IMC didn't like 1T timing it was trashing my drive constantly.

I noticed that, but it could have suffered data corruption before setting the bclk back to stock, and only manifested later.

OP, I would test the system (with a freshly formatted drive) at stock for a period of time, then with an OC using only the CPU multiplier, and then by setting the bclk back to what you had it at during your regular OC. I'd be willing to bet that the first two cases don't result in a HDD problem.

Schmuckley! Hey Man.

I was running a 102 bclk when the first one went.. Ive seen some thread saying it possible.. But the majority of the people on the thread I saw said that unles your running a bclk of higher than 107 there shouldnt be a problem.. Regardless.. After the first one went I dropped the bclk to 100.. and Ive been having problems.

It manly happens while watching video on windows media.. The first time (on the new hdd) my computer almost crashed (I was folding as well) the sounds got distorted and then files on the "E" drive which is the HDD couldnt be found, the drive was even gone from my computer, but came back after a reboot.. I then switched out the cable, did a CMOS reset, and I am running default default settings.. While only watching a video last night the sound started distorted again and the computer seemed glitchy.. So I am assuming the problem still exists..

Im thinking its the recently RMA'd mobo they just sent me.. But there trying to blame the power supply.. Its a Corsair AX850 psu and the SDD is on the same power line so if it wasnt supplying enough Amps.. The whole computer would crash.. not just anything on my "e" drive..

I have to boot in Ubuntu and try to run memtests.. where is that located on ubuntu? Never memtest with ubuntu before..

Other than it being RAM.. I hope to get my hands on a 680 video card tomorrow or friday and then after that do a full system reformat and dl all new drivers.. That should eliminate most of the possible problems.

guyladouche: Theres a possibily theres corruption on my sdd I guess even tho cmd prompt chkdsk is showing 0 kb damage.. I guess I dont really know.. But right now the "e" drive is reformated and I am running 100% stock and while watching a torrented video the sound started distorting and the computer began to lag and after I stopped the video, utorrent reported the file I JUST downloaded to be missing.. I dont know how to explain that.. It came back with a reboot and I finished watching it.

Oh man, even bone stock? I see. In that case, I would agree it's probably the motherboard. frown.gif Any chance of RMA for a second time? You sure they didn't bamboozle you, and send back the exact same board you sent in?

I can't imagine it's the PSU and ONLY causing problems with the drives. Have you stress-tested the CPU + RAM? I'd be willing to bet if you don't see issues at stock load, then it's not a PSU issue.

Asus has advance RMA. So they sent me a new board first and I sent the other one back..

Ive been able to run Prime 95 without problems, I didnt do 12+, but I didnt have a problem in the first hour of it being OC'd or stock.. And I think I even did 4hrs when I first got the new mobo and I didnt have a problem.. I even ran Hyper Pi last night for alittle.. Yea my computer would bugging on 32M but it was passing.. just running really slow..

Asus said if I send the board in to them they will repair it.. Yet they say they "check" the board before sending it ot. So if they missed it then, I doubt there is anything to "repair" this time.. That and I wont have a mobo for 2-3 weeks.. I am asking for them to give me another advance RMA, but they said I only get one and sadly none of the reps are willing to help and their supervisior is always busy.. I am hoping he will call me today..

I just dont see why I cant get an exception then the sent me the board, and ive tried my best to troubleshoot and I think its the mobo.. I mean I already lost one HDD (luckily i had a MC warranty).. Or it would of cost me $150 or I would of had to RMA with western digital for another one and lets not talk about how I lost all the data on it.. Which could of been bad..

Memtest86 will be one of the options when you start a bootable Ubuntu disk. You should be able to select it before loading the OS. I suppose that the mobo could be causing the problem, bad sata port or controller.

:/ "Repair." Laughable. Too bad they only do one advance RMA.

I am trying to get them to give me another advance, but there being ridiculous about it. I cant see why not when they sent me faulty product.. One even gave me an attitude and I hung up on him (not my best moment) and I think he noted that I hung up on him... So everyone is giving me a hard time.. But he didnt note how he was giving me **** on the phone..

Its not just youtube videos.. I was using Windows Media Player.. would that have a hardware acceleration too? But I mean that wasnt a problem before why would it be a problem now?

Is there an Asus rep in this forum I could try to contact? Think that could help at all?
