    clicking HDD usually means that
    (1) The Hard drive is dead. drive quality control is hard stuff. a lot of drives fail early, within a few months. all other drives should be fine for a long time. Don't blame Toshiba, RMA, and be fine.

    (2) the power cable isn't pushed in firmly enough. Try multiple cables. If you use a modular PSU, check the PSU side too.
