I've found the culprit, it is my Samsung 500GB hard drive. I recall it making alot of weird noises during benchmarking and I can now put my finger on it; I usually hear very light clicking accompanying the hiss or squeel. No question it is the harddrive. It is the newest component in my PC at less than 3 months old...

but it is one my Anteic Tricool fans
Another bad Antec fan not suprising, its why I give away the stock fans I get with all my cases.

Good luck with Samsung, hopefully you'll be able to get the RMA from them.

Haha, this Samsung is my backup for my much older Seagate drives in my PC. It is 95% empty atleast. Do I wait until it fails or try to get an RMA on it now?

Thanks,

- Jesse
