Tags: Gaming Storage Hard Drives Last response: July 30, 2013 11:18 AM in Storage Share Nwg442 July 30, 2013 7:54:07 AM So basically I just built a new gaming PC yesterday and i could really use some help. Every time i load a program or game, its making this hard to describe clicking sound. I recorded it three times so you can hear it. Loudest: http://youtu.be/RRRcC5Dy1Jg Quieter: http://youtu.be/jE9GIidpO3c Edit: you will have to turn up your volume to hear it, the mic wasn't picking up that well Silent: (just smooth, no sound) I took the rear panel off and listened for noise, it souds like it's coming directly from the Hard Drive. I checked for wires hitting fans and everything, but i don't know why this noise is happening. So basically I don't know if I should return this hard drive for a better one, maybe return it and get SSD instead, or just keep it if this noise is normal.

Though it not clear enough. But I never heard a HDD making such noise.
