    IBM 75GXP - Click of Death - What does it sound like?

    Saw this thread about IBM 75GXP drive failures:-
    http://www.tech-report.com/news_reply.x/2799/1/

    Can anyone describe the sound?

    (or better still does anyone have a link to a URL with the sound on say mp3?)
    Athlon XP 3200+, TT Silent Boost (its rubbish as well as loud) Gigabyte nForce2 mobo (stable but lacks tweaking options), GF4 Ti4200 128mb, Lian-Li V2000

    i've no idea what it sounds like but a clicking hdd is never a good thing, it might make a light 'data-accessing' noise but not a serious tick tick tick noise

    if you do get it them immediately test the hdd with their d/l drive fitness tester.

    not all 75gxps will make that noise - i have heard first hand accounts of catastrophic silent failure of 75gxps that took the motherboard and processor with the it
