Like a fan or something. I checked it. I stopped all fans (cpu, video, psu) and the noise was still there.
I read online that it might be a motor or something. I have put a great deal of effort making my pc quiet. Installed a quiet psu and cpu fan, reduced the fan speed of my video card, bought a ssd... But my drive for data makes this noise. I would never have expected that.
Do all hard disks make this kind of noise? I guess most people won't notice it because of the other fans they have in the system, I however can hear it quite clearly because all my other fans are almost silent.
So should i get a new one or should i just live with it, considering that i might end up with a drive that also makes this noise.
