    ok so here's the symptoms
    bsod x1 (today)
    VERY slow getting into the windows 8.1 login screen (though after that usually it's fine)
    it's been doing that for awhile now
    and random lock ups and freezes
    and to be honest... i'm not even sure it's my HDD but i don't know what else could be causing this
    but for reference.. my build:
    Windows 8.1 x64
    Gigabyte Motherboard
    AMD radeon 7870 2gb vram
    corsair vengence ram 16gb
    amd 6-core cpu (don't know the GHZ off hand)
    750w psu single rail
    1x 149GB HDD (os drive)
    1x 3TB HDD (storage)
    1x 1TB HDD (game drive)

    i think that covers it
    i'm thinking of going to an ssd anyway, BUT i'm TRYING to save for an AMD R9 290 GPU
    but if i have to hold off on that to replace a drive that's dying i will cause that'll take precedence
    also is there a program that could CHECK my drives to see if there's something possibly wrong with them?
    a 100% free one would be nice
    (not free to scan then pay to fix kinda crap lol)
    thanks for any and all help in advance!

    HD Tune 5 Trial. Check it.

    If you can, mirror OS to faster drive. I had before OS on 160GB and now on 1TB. 3x speed increase.

    i ran a couple tests...
    damn thing is fine....
    i don't know what else could be the culprit
    *sigh* maybe it's just a random occurrence I don't know

    If the drive is older than 3 years, just replace it already

    could be dying? Sure it could be.

    can you paste/screen shot your smart info?

    edit: did you try another sata cable and sata port on the board?

    The problem may not be related to your HD. But a reformat should help diagnose the problem. If it were me I would just replace the drive as its got some age.

    Install Update1 for 8.1 if you don't have it. If it doesn't help, install windows 7. I had same problems with 8/8.1 without update1. After u1 this system is stable enough to use. Disk looks supringisly good.

    Like @freaksavior said, one of the easiest things you can do is switch the cable to see if there is any difference.. Cables go bad, and interrupt the signals they are supposed to send. Anyway, that's what I would do before I reformatted.

    BTW, for having 34,000 hours, your SMART characteristics look good. I see the spinup time value is erratic, and has been getting low, and that could be part of the problem, but that's expected after that many hours.

    thanks for the suggestions guys!
    i haven't had a chance to try the cable swap due to work but will do it when i can and post results
    in the mean time i bought myself a 256gb ssd drive as not only will it have more room... it'll be way faster
    just needs to arrive lol
    EDIT: oh i almost forgot...
    i have the 8.1 update 1
    have had it for awhile...
    and it's not helping lol

    im not sure if you can get hdd regenerator as a trial any more. but thats what i use "full version" i buy ide drives in bulk for xbox mods. and have to test them all. hdd regen lets me see if sectors have been re allocated. delay sectors bad sectors and so on and can let me repair them (if i tell it to repair then i scan again) if any re appear or new ones re appear then its no good.
    smart data also gets monitored. but the actuall scanning will usually pick up errors that would not have been mentioned by smart.
    i think spin rite also offers similar features.

    Have you tried the generic and standard AHCI drivers bundled with Windows (installing them manually via the device manager) instead of the ones installed yes or yes by the installer of Radeon drivers? According to certain people, system is more responsive when generic AHCI drivers handles the SATA ports.

    And for privacy reasons you should remove the serial numbers of hard disks posted in that log.

    acutally the ahci drivers were already handling it
    but i acutally went out and bought a ssd so it's no issue anymore
    and the serial numbers to the drives? ok yeah i prolly should remove them lol, thanks for that
