Is my SATA controller dying? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Like I've said, I've already tested the drives on my laptop. Same errors.

I always keep my drivers updated.

My chipset is Intel X48 so I don't have any 6gbit/s ports.

I also replaced SATA cables, didn't work.

That said, I cannot accept the statement that "The drive has ran its course, and now must die". Especially when my older caviar blues/greens/blacks/raptors/velociraptors are still running fine in other computers, the only problems like this I've ever had was with some external Seagate drives that fell off a shelf. In the past, I've replaced my Quantums, Maxtors, Toshibas, you name it, all simply because their capacity was not enough anymore.

I will be building an X79 system next month and will also be getting a 4TB caviar black to backup all my data and RMA the current ones. If this is the case, I find myself feeling stupid for spending 400 dollars for a drive that will work for only 2 years...

drives die, mechanical failure happens. Parts have wear and tear and break down It is normal. Not 100% of everything is perfect. You can have 1 drive last for 20 years, you can have the one that came after it in manufacturing die in 1 month. It just happens.

$400 on what drive? Sounds like a waste of $. You can get 3TB drives for ~$100 each...I just got two for that.

$450 actually, on a brand new 4TB Caviar Black. Well, this a 3rd world country I live in after all...

Been there, done that - I thought something was buggered as well because I had a few drives fail in succession. Nope. Next lot were fine and still are.

Now - what are your operating conditions like? E.g. temperature, vibration, and potentially anything that may cause any sort of stress on the drives?

I want point to a article posted here not long ago: http://www.overclock.net/t/1442015/et-how-long-do-hard-drives-actually-live-for

It shows the failure rates from 25,000 drives over 4 years with consumer drives. It shows exactly what happens to you. Failures can and will happen everytime even if the operating conditions are perfect for it. The company propably has the best operating conditions possible and they lost still 20% of their drives in the first 4 years.

So your first drive with 3000 hours has a manufacturing defect which shows up in the first year and the other one is like I said the normal wear - out process.

How old are your other drives? Its nice that never before a harddrive failed on you but it happens and it shouldn´t stop you to backup your data or to think all your drives will survive the expected 100,000h mark.

That's what I always say when I don't really know, biggrin.gif

But really -- two different model drives failing so close in time? Unlikely.
