Hi everyone!

Quick and probably stupid question, but my HDD light is constantly blinking during games such as BF3. Is this normal behaviour?

Furthermore, even at idle, the HDD is blinking away...

I have a Force 3 60gb corsair(windows 7 installed) and a WD 2TB black (game/music storage).

If you have only one hard drive, it's completely normal. Windows has numerous background tasks that perform I/O to the OS drive on a more-or-less continuous basis. It's not a lot of I/O (i.e., it's a small amount of data), but it is going on all the time.
