Hey guys. I just built a new computer and have some questions about noise. There is the obvious fan noise but there is also a mid/high pitch whine. I think it is the hard drive. The whine will get momentarily louder when i click on something or scroll. The hard drive is a brand new WD caviar blue 320gb. The noise is noticeable and annoying and i do not think that it is normal. Any input is helpful, thank you.

Does the whine go away when you turn off the LCD monitor?
