Vista hangs then HDD clicks and Vista resumes.

Hi there! I just last week upgraded my build and installed Vista (32bit Home Premium). Since the first time I logged in, I would get these random 3 second or so hangs, then the my hard drive would click and everything would be fine. This seem to happens randomly, when there's alot of HD activity and when I'm just on facebook.

I haven't ran any tests yet. I plan on running spinrite and chkdsk and maybe defrag. But I was wondering before I did all these tests if anyone had any advice on a fix for this? I'm just hoping its not my new motherboard -.- I don't wanna deal with the whole RMA crap.
