strange random clicking noise from case?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sometimes I hear a light "click" from my case kind of like a single tap on a keyboard I can't really tell what it is..and it's extremely hard to pin point since it happens so randomly. I doubt it's the fans since the click is so random and I'm pretty sure my wires are out of all my fans ways.

I did some research, and read that it might be my HDD pre-failing? I hope this isnt the case since my F3 is only a week old. Any good free HDD diagnostic tools that I can check if my HDD is in ok condition?

Any other ideas what the random clicking noise might be?

It could be your harddrive. Years ago, i had a western digital harddrive present the same problem. It died about 2 months later.

If you're certain it's not a fan issue, its likely that your HDD is making the noise.
