Re: [Help] Clicking sound...Possibly from Hard Drive?

Can you please install HD Tune Pro (trial version is fine; do not use the free version) and provide screenshots of the Health tab for each hard disk in your computer?

There are presently many models of hard disks which will make this "clicking" noise under normal operation. I can explain it in further detail if needed, but let's start with the above.

As far as "could it be something else" -- absolutely. It could be any number of fans in your system (CPU fan, case fans, GPU fans), or it could be something like your system heating up or cooling down causing the underlying metal and/or plastic to "click" briefly. And on some PSUs there is sometimes power-related circuitry that can make a clicking noise (I believe it's some kind of encapsulated mechanical switch inside of some component; not sure what).

Thank you.

OK Koitsu,

I've installed HD Tune Pro....Which tests did you want me to run and what screen captures did you need from me?

Thanks.

It's in my post, first line. You do not need to run any tests.
