I just got my raptor in today and i was happy. I finally got my new system up and running but i am hearing weird grinding noises from the drive. I know this is not normal for 7200 drives, is this normal for this one?

Thanks

If you just got it from ZZF, then call them for a replacement. I never have to return for a replacement from ZZF so i don't know how long it takes.

well thats why i RMA mine from Western Digital themselves. I selected the Advance RMA which require me to enter my CC number. They ship first, i ship back later (30 Days).

Mine`s noiseless. The cooler on it is louder than the drive, and the cooler you can barely hear. RMA your WD.

i dunno guys, when I am doing stuff like virus scan or installing an OS my Raptor X will make a kind of grinding noise but its not like the sound a dying hard drive makes. Grinding isn't really the best word to describe the sound but it is the only word I can think of.

I have RMA two drivers this is my third. They all make the same noise. You just have to live with it.

You have RMA'd 2 Raptors because of grinding noises?
Sounds to me like your mounting method, maybe a vibration you're hearing.
My Raptors may hum or whirr but never make grinding sounds.
