Default Hard drive ???

My 300gb hard drive always clicked when i played counter strike or any game and the computer stopped reading the hard drive for a couple seconds. While it stopped reading it my computer froze till it read it again.

I got a 200gb hard drive tonight and my computer is going faster now.

My 300gb hard drive that clicked was very hott when i got it out so i wondered if i need more fans or something.

Let the hard drive rest for awhile.

I don't know the solution to your problem, i still have my old 40GB hard drive sitting around because it did the same thing.

so if i let it rest for a few years will that do the trick?

I did that to a 40gb hard drive a long time ago and that did the trick.

I was just thinking if i had a hard drive cooler that wouldn't happen but i don't know.

imo, I doubt that a fans would help it much. But let it cool off for a bit and see it starting it up again does the trick. Even if it dosen't click for 2 minutes, you would know it must be an overheat issue. And then buying a Hard Drive cooler would be worth it.
Current Build (Hope to finish by late spring):
Intel Q6600 g0
Asus Maximus Formula
geIL Evo 2GB (2x1gb) DDR2
ATI HD3870 X2 or Nvidia 9800 X2?
2x 150gb RaptorX (Have it)
Thermaltake Toughpower 750w PSU (Have it)
Antec P182 Case
HP w2207 22" Monitor (Have it)
