|A repair isn't the same as a reformat. It *should* be fine but backup beforehand just in case.|
it turns out repairing the disk temporarily solved the problem, but after a week it got worse than it was before. OSX was having kernel panics just by simply unplugging USB drives. Anyhow I ended up doing a full clean install of ML. Wiped the Hard disk of everything and didnt bother carrying over any settings or files from the old installation. Now what could really speed things up is if i can get my hands on a fusion drive. I'm hoping these are standard SATA Drives. I'll probably end up buying one if they get sold as spares for the newer iMacs.
