Hello there. I got this drive two weeks ago and I’d like to confirm with the community if this level of noise is normal. I’ve never heard anything like it coming from an internal drive, and in theory the Gold brand should be quieter than the rest. Please note this is its IDLE state:
The drive is louder than anything else in my computer, including fans running on load. Even a NAS server sitting next to the PC with 4 10TB Reds is quieter.
The exact model of the drive is WD102KRYZ. Any comments? Is this kind of noise to be expected in these drives? Many thanks in advance!
