  1. Hello. I'm having a problem. My computer freezes when I have a connected HDD or SATA 3 SSD with grinding noise coming out of the speakers. This lasts for a second then the computer unfreezes and the noise stops. This happens once or twice a day. Initially, I had a Seagate Baracuda 1 TB HDD and whenever the problem happened from the HDD came noise, from the case itself. I removed the HDD and ran my windows from a M2 SSD, which is 256 GB, for 3 months. The problem completely disappeared when the HDD was removed. Then, I bought a brand new HDD but the problem appeared again. I changed the SATA cable, which is connected to the PSU in a SATA port, and i changed the SATA 3 cable, which is connected to the motherboard, with new ones. The problem continued. I tried different SATA slots of the PSU and different SATA 3 slots on motherboard but it still continued. I changed the HDD with a brand new SATA 3 SSD but the computer continues freezing a couple of times a day. I reinstalled my PC and tried different stuff on the net but nothing helps. I'm really frustrated. Right now if I want my computer to work without freezing I have to use only my M2 SSD, which is not enough for me. My computer: Mobo: Asus Rog Strix Z370 E-Gaming Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 CPU: Intel Core i7-8700k RAM: 2 sticks x 16 GB Kingston Predator DDR4 3000 MHZ CPU Cooler: Corsair H115i SSD: 256 GB Corsair MP500 (M2) PSU is 1000 WATT - Corsair Platinum HX1000 Thank you in advance for the help.
  2. The hard drive is SATA3 Seagate 1TB. The warranty is still valid. Should I call the guys from whom I bought it and tell them about the problem? I don't have another hard drive to use.
  3. The PSU is 1000 WATT - Corsair Platinum HX1000. It's a pretty good PSU. And I just checked out where the sound is coming from. The sound comes out of the hard drive. I don't have any spare parts to test unfortunately.
  4. Yes, the sound comes from the hard drive! I just restarted the computer a few times with my ear close to the hard drive and it's definitely coming from there. I even placed my finger on the hard drive and when the sound happens I feel a subtle vibration happening from the hard drive.
  5. Hello, everybody. My computer freezes once or twice a day for 2-4 seconds. When that happens a strange noise comes out of the case, not the speakes but the case itself. The sound coming out of the case is similar to a sound of shifting an old car's gears. The computer freezes usually when I do some basic action like opening the File Explorer, closing a tab in Google chrome, creating a new folder. The moment it freezes that strange sound from the case appears. It lasts 2-3 seconds and when it stops the computer unfreezes. I reinstalled the windows and formatted the drives. I am with the latest GPU drivers with the default settings. The GPU has never been oc'ed. The CPU is oc'ed with the preset created by Asus but even when it's not oc'ed this problem still occurs. I am using benchmarking programs to stress test the CPU and GPU. The CPU and GPU handle the benchmarks without a problem. They are hitting 100% utilization in the tab performance tab of the task manager. I'm not getting blue screens. Also, I do 2D and 3D animations and I can leave the computer to render a complex video animation for 5 hours where both the CPU and GPU are being stressed a lot but the computer handles it without a problem. But when I create a folder or close a tab in chrome the computer freezes sometimes. Here are the parts of the computer: Mobo: Asus Rog Strix Z370 E-Gaming Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 CPU: Intel Core i7-8700k RAM: 2 sticks x 16 GB Kingston Predator DDR4 3000 MHZ CPU Cooler: Corsair H115i SSD: 256 GB Corsair MP500 and a 1 TB hard drive I've assembled the computer exactly as shown in the tutorial for the motherboard created by Asus. I clean the dust of the case regularly. The CPU idle temp is around 30 C. The GPU idle temp is 40 C. I've run Bitdefender and Malwarebytes to check out what's going on. There are no viruses or any threats detected. The computer is running smoothly but it's just that once or twice a day it freezes for a few seconds with that strange sound coming out of the case. This sound also comes out of the case when I start the computer after pressing the power button and also when I turn off the computer. I'd like to thank in advance to everyone who replies to my post.
