No noise. Usually any electrical noise you hear from components is due to capacitors or coils. AFAIK no SSD has coils and few have capacitors (SF1500?).

Have you tried turning off your speakers? Some sound cards are susceptible to electronic "noise" which typically happens during drive or mouse activity.

I had a kingston 64gb ssdnow Vseries in my laptop and it does sort of make a very quiet "buzzing" noise. I could only hear it when it's being accessed and if I put my ear right up to the palm rest. With a regular desktop case though I doubt you would hear anything at all.

Odd...

My SSDNow doesn't make a sound.


When I put it in I realized that my old 7200.3 was the loudest part in my laptop.

It may have been something else in the laptop I was hearing. When I had my 7200rpm seagate momentus drive in there was audible seeking noise like a regular hdd, but I had never heard this buzzing noise.

As soon as I put the ssd in I could tell when it was being accessed by the buzz noise and hdd led flashing. The room would have to be pretty much silent and you would have to be right up close to hear it. This was in a dell xps m1530 where the hdd is right under the left side of the palm rest with only a very thin case covering it.

EDIT: I have the same experience as OP in this thread:

yeah, my agility 60 gig makes a buzz noise during loading.

but that is in a whisper quiet laptop, so it could be some capacitor squeel or something else. but it is coming from that general direction.

So much people telling you about special cases that the SSD is broken, or about the distance between you and the PC, When the answer is simple: SSDs doesnt make any noise at all, they based on Flash/DRAM memory, there no mechanical parts and those who say they have some strange buzz must behaving bad to their drive

Also SSD contain small amounts of storage, another option is to get normal HDD

No, and no heat- one of the many advantages of SSDs!
