Hi, I have a build i put together a year ago.
Delidded Intel I5 8600k
Gigabyte Z390I MotherBoard
2xCorsair 8GB 3000MHz DDR4 ram
I have a 1 year old Seagate Barracuda 3TB HDD in my pc that keeps getting corrupted files. Its not instant, but if i keep files on there for a month or so theres a small chance of them corrupting. I have reinstalled the OS, ran chkdsk, antivirus, checked temps, checked my other drives and everything seems ok.
Things keep on corrupting tho, and i cant seem to figure out why.
Could me delidding the CPU be a reason for data corruption? I was extremely careful with it and covered exposed testpoints on it.
I have had some bad experience with Gigabyte in terms of OC'ing where it whould crash if i even turned the clock up to 4.0GHz (+0.2 GHz (With a 850W PSU)), and where the rgb software was absolute garbage...
So if Gigabyte is just a bad producer and could be a reason for data corruption?
I have absolutley no idea why images keep getting invalid, videos keep getting "deepfried", and some of my folders on the harddrive becoming infinetly recursive (and when attempting to delete them they apperantley dont exist)
I have no idea where to even begin troubleshooting.
