My System Specs

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?
If it's clicking and grinding, send in a ticket or get them to call you. I'd be asking for an RMA based solely on that without waiting for a bad sector.
