You have a FAILING (not yet dead) hard drive....

I've had this problem before, multiple times, always the same stuttering / locking / freezing issue right before the death of my HDD...

Two weeks later and still not tried a temporary different drive?
Ok, there's a chance it might not be the drive but surely common sense dictates that you run the system without the most likely defect until it runs OK.

I haven't had the chance, been really busy and dont have any spare HDDs lying about.

Anyway, I've purchased a new WD Green Line hard drive. Hopefully this will solve the problem - if not, im wondering if its my controller

I noticed there was a hdtune post earlier, I personally like speedfan's online smart status best. Either way, if your SMART status isn't reporting a high error count/bad sector count I would say your looking in the wrong direction. Generally it's pretty good at giving you an indicator of the drive being bad. I'd assume it's not if you get a fairly positive read out.

Really your just worried about Read Error Rate, Reallocated Sector Count, Seek Error Rate. Uncorrectable Sector Count can also help, as it tells you what sectors are permanently bad. The SMART status could be wrong, as software can always fail, but it's generally a good indicator.

[edit] My 160G that I'm currently using as my Linux OS is 4.5yrs old (uptime), reported from my SMART status. Crazyness!
