I'm really not being sarcastic here, I'm just trying to better understand the sound so I can help you.
Could it possibly be a random wire too close to a fan? Have you tried opening up the case while it's running to better isolate where the sound is coming from exactly?
Ahh, thats a good idea.
Well its hard to explain but its loud for .45 of a second, a deep clamp noise, then loud for the other .45 of the second. Iv opened the case and made sure the cables arent to close to the fan before. Its a loud clampy cutting noise =/
Anyways, the noise if coming from the Hard Drive. So its either my cables (which work fine with my other HD), the HD (which was brand new from NCIX, tried 2 of them and both the same noise) or the Power. Could it be the power?
Dont really wanna take it to a shop, theyll charge like $60 to just look at it. But seems i gotta.
Anyone got ne ideas?
