*UPDATED* 4 HDDs In 1 Month?? - Page 3

post #21 of 38
Do you have another PSU you can test it out with?
I had similar problems and it turned out to be the psu.

i would of RMA'ed the HDD's tbh..

if you think the cage is magnetic, get a compass and give it a try.
(if your wondering who uses one, then you rely on a SatNav too much.)

if so, remove and bang it. loses magnetism.

I've got a computer right now that I'm trying to get working right now, but it's being a royal pain. Through two drives, RAM is memtested fine, everything worked before and now two weeks later it's throwing errors and blue screens left and right.

My point is that it could really be anything. RMAing the mobo and drives should hopefully fix it. I'd use new SATA cables as well.
Thanks for the tip. I'll pick up some new cables as well.

I was originally planning to just RMA the HDDs but decided to also RMA the mobo since my system was going to be down anyway.


I don't have another PSU to test. The closest thing I have wouldn't even power my CPU.

If I am having the same problems with my new stuff, I will definately look further into the PSU.

Is your PCI-Express frequency at stock? I know that increasing the PCI-E freq. too much can cause HD errors, and in extreme situations, HD failure--but to be honest, I've never experienced that. What's your PCI-E freq. at?

Have you set your hard drive(s) to run fast in Device Manager? If yes, maybe set to default before installing Windows.

Because you need a <$200 RAID controller to see acceptabe performance.

The second set of HDDs never even had windows installed on them. Even so I've never used that option in the past.

My PCI-E frequency is 100MHz I believe. I've never touched that. What would PCI-E frequency have to do with SATA anyway?

On a lot of chipsets (don't know them off the top of my head), the PCI-E and SATA buses are linked, so increasing the PCI-E frequency by default increases the SATA bus too (AFAIK there's no way to un-link them).

Same thing with the IDE bus and PCI bus, but you can lock the PCI bus down to 33.33MHz on most good motherboards.

Thanks for the info.

I've never changed those settings so I doubt that has anything to do with this. Thanks for the suggestion though.
