Hey i just ordered a new computer, and all the parts are working great except my harddrive is extremely loud. I have a Seagate Barraacuda 7200 250gig, and reading the reviews on newegg.com most of them say its almost silent. It sounds like an incredibly loud scratching sound when its read/writing, a lot like the older harddrives sound. Its noise level is way above my 5 fans on their highest RPM (hopefully that helps give you an idea). This is my first seagate/SATA, so im not sure if it has to do with being one of those 2, or if it has to do with being brand new. Does anyone else have this harddrive that can comment on its noise level? The harddrive seems to be running great. Thank you EDIT: Im also hearing this faint ticking sound once every 5 min or so, it kinda sounds like the mob's speaker but quieter, and its coming from the harddrive.
