Hello I just bought a WD Gold 18TB (WD181KRYZ) and it produces a whistle that I can also hear at a distance of 4-5 meters with closed computer case. It’s an annoying sound. I’ve a lot of other WD gold 12TB and 14TB and no one produces such a noise. I recorded two sounds, one recorded with x3 WD Gold 14TB (open computer case) and another recording with x1 WD Gold 18TB (open computer case).
If this is normal, can you tell me if the WD Gold 16TB (WD161KRYZ) has this sound too?
