Well, my Hard drive is only about 3 months old and everytime its on full load or if im even scrolling throgh my stuff it makes a high-pitch noise. It sounds like its coming from the CPU, but its just the way my case is seted up.
Only sometimes it will do it, mostly when the CPU is on full-load. When im playing F.E.A.R its only getting about 12 to 20 frames when usealy i get 35 to 70 FPS, when its making the noise.

Why is it doing this?

It may be that the thing is ever so slightly loose and is rubbing something metal during heavy use. Other than that, its either how the drive is, or a sign of impending failure.
