I recently upgraded my pc. I use it primarily for gaming and some light editing.
Asus maximus v formula
intel 520 series 240gb ssd (windows and apps)
WD Green 2TB (for games and light storage)
The issue i am having is that my hdd makes a pretty quite but audible clicking sound quite often. I have been reading up on it and I suspect it could perhaps be related to the WD green drives "parking" or something along those lines.
I am not quite knowledgeable with hard drives sorry.
The hard drive performs fine, it is NOT DYING! it is not THAT type of full grinding noise.
Large HDDs are less reliable IMO. I would run a checkdisk on that drive.
If it is a hardware issue (sounds like it) there is nothing you can do about that. If the drive is still in warranty you could return it for another one or a refund. Make sure you do a backup of your data and a full wipe if you plan to return it.
