Hi guys
So i wanted to ask what can i do with my HDD cuz i am out of ideas.
When i want to play some games that are demanding a lot of cpu and gpu power (i think XD) after an hour of me playing this game my pc suddenly freezes and the only thing i have to do is restart it. I used HD tune pro to see if any of the sectors are bad and they were all good but when i looked at the health site it said (C7) interface crc error 94
so after seeing this message i pulled up crystaldiskinfo and it said that everything's ok so i really don't know who should i trust.
Also today i saw a post that said it can only be a SATA cabel so i really don't know what to do. (Btw my pc is around 10 years old so i know that i should expect these kinds of errors but i didn't have any problem with this before i got a upgrade from FX-6100 to FX-8350)

I am really loosing my mind with this shiz so thanks in advance to those that will reply. ( Also if i posted this in the wrong section dw u can give me some hate)

Just a quick idea. couldn't also be my gpu or it's drivers cuz i had this same problem when i was trying out valorant in closed beta. But this problem went away after i updated the drivers for it (my gpu is ASUS STRIX 1060 6gb)

Cyclic Redundancy Check Failures are usually caused by the computer not being able to to communicate with the HDD. You should switch the Data Cable from the HDD to the Motherboard. Use a different Power Plug from the PSU. Even try a different SATA port on the motherboard. If all fails the controller board on the Drive may be failing.
You should consult with our resident Hard Drive Specialist fzabkar who should have a better answer for you.
