Default How can I make a HDD fail?

not exactley as it sounds....

I got a 500GB HDD, my first seagate...

and on system start up it clicks like mad and grinds a little bit.... also happens whenever it is forced to seek...

I ran the HDtune test and it found 0 bad sectors....

if this HDD is going to fail I want it to fail within my 30 day warranty with NCIX so I get a new one and not a refurb

any ideas on how I can force it to fail?
