Sometimes when this drive is idling or just web browsing it will make this kinda loud noise around every 3-6 seconds and no it isn't a clicking noise. It is a different noise from when the drive is actually seeking. It doesn't always happen when idling and web browsing though. Is this just how the drive is?

If it's not a click, then what kind of sound is it?

Is there any noise on this planet that is similar to the sound you're hearing? Is it absolutely nothing like a "click" whatsoever?

Oh you mean the sound the drive makes when it's reading/writing?
I dunno exactly what you call it,but yes it is a bit more noisy with the Caviar Black drives than some others.
The sound is noticeable with a WD Caviar Black in my HAF 922, but it doesn't seem to bother me.

Mine's quieter than the fans on my rad, and that's all that matters.
