Default Q about Seagate 300GB drive

Hey all

My Seagate 300GB sata 2 drive is making some quiet clicking sounds during loads, i have it paired with an Epox board. Is this normal behavior or should i rma it for a new one? S.M.A.R.T says drive is alright but the clicking is getting on my nerves, i've had drives click but they were usually over a year old at the very least.

If anyone who has owned this drive can tell me anything or any seagate drive i'd be grateful.

if it's really loud, get it replaced.

Softer tick could be the driveheads flicking around, and that is normal behaviour. Seagates that I know are among the most silent drives around, but I haven't used the latest revision.
