My Pc is making some weird noise.

So, my pc is making a weird noise but I don't know what it is i have a recording of it but you cant really hear it that good because of my loud fans but I think it has something to do with my hard drive but everything looks fine on my hard drive everything is tighten and secure and my hard drive works perfectly fine. I've had no random

or crashes nothing of that.

Sounds like a fan hitting something or it is the HDD.

PM or DM me if you have any questions about audio or about your PC.

But it could be a fan,the quality of the audio is not enough,nor the longevity of the clip.

It does sound normal. But it does sound like something a little old.. 500gb for a HDD nowadays is not that much. If you want something silent, get SSD or get a newer much less noisy drive.

Is the drive at 100% usage? (not capacity)

Hard drive might be on it's way out, download Seatools and see if it passes the tests (That's an app for testing Seagate drives)

Hard drives can be very noisy when at 100% usage,so it might be just normal activity noise.

Yeah could be, and windows 10 likes to hammer single hard drives. Seatools is free though so couldn;t hurt to run the tests.
