TL;DR sorry if you've already ruled this out but..

Are you running any A/V? perhaps it's at fault.

Athlonite: try any of these https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/24293 or go with the one listed on your mobos website here http://www.gigabyte.co.nz/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3764#dl


Will do, thanks :)

richms: I would just replace motherboard and CPU/ram if it is suspected of corrupting data.

Drivers dont cause it. I have had machines running bog standard windows drivers on a core 2 quad vintage machine that has probably transfered exabytes between drives as I have moved things around. Thats internal sata, esata, USB2.0 and pcie card esata to a storage enclosure. All on a fresh install of 7 with just windows updates and I think the esata PCIe card driver from the silicon image website.

Think I have had a couple of occasions where I have had files corrupt and it was a read error off a HDD that was quickly picked up when I rechecked the torrent files.

For the number of errors you are having, something is wrong. If there is that much reading or writing improperly I would expect frequent bluescreens etc as well.

Bin the hardware, get an equivilant machine ex lease or replace it with current stuff and then problems should stop. Drivers are a red-herring. They may help with performance but there is no way that anyone would ship hardware that corrupts files on a stock installation.


I don't get any blue screens, which I agree is really strange. Motherboard, CPU, and RAM are most of the cost, case, graphics, etc are a small extra really. I could reuse PSU, case, and video, I may do actually.

It could be that my testing methodology is incorrect... given the variety of tests I've used I don't think so though.

I'm running no antivirus on W10, just what's built in. On W7 I installed Avast! I don't think it's that...

Looks like it could be a chipset bug :(

A motherboard replacement seems to have fixed the problem. It probably was the chipset bug I posted a link to above. Solved!
