Isn't this one with the hard drive cable? I'd try replacing it if you haven't already. You may also need to install OSX again after doing so.

Bad HDD cables cause data on a hard drive to become corrupt as they cause read and write errors.

This is not one of the ones with the known HD/IR cable issues. But it's the logical solution!
