SSD noise?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Getting tired of my hard old 160gb WD's making noise, do SSD really make any noise at all? I know there's no true moving parts in a SSD, but do you get electrical noise?
post #2 of 19
No there's no noise coming from them, and if there is, then you have a problem

If there is electrical noise, you'd have to pull it several feet away from the rest of the system to even have a chance of hearing it... and that chance wouldn't be there due to other background noise.

When I saw the title I thought you were asking if the noise is ok.
I read the title I was like, "No just NO! this guy needs to back up now"

Nope, not really, although I sometimes hear a small buzz when it's being accessed, like a really faint grinding sound, but my SSD is old and frail

No, they do not make noise, if there is, then something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.
