    Hey All,

    So I upgraded my ram and hard drive about a week and a half ago from Newegg Crucial/WD Scorpio Blue. I've always heard subtle clicks but now it seems like it's more prominent. What do you guys think? Is this normal? I got the audio from off my iPhone when I laid it down on my keypad.

    The clicks occur about every 10 seconds when I don't really have anything running.

    in another post i had heard of this an two things that seemed to be a cause other than a bad drive or case. was how it was mounted in, there was bumpers that required a T6 screw driver to be removed and installed. then there was the latest firmware which from what i saw was 1.7. i dont know if this applies or not.

    by the way i have been looking a that drive and how is it? with speed, battery, noise, and vibration. do you like it? why did you pick it? by any chance did you look at the seagate 7200.4 500gb? thanks this would help a lot.
