I recently got an ORICO enclosure since I ran out of space in my case and after a browse around the forums it seems to be a brand that's recommended.


Been using it for about 2 days now and everything works fine, transfer speeds are good (~140MB/s) but quite often it'll make a sound, not quite a "beep" but a low pitched noise. Is this normal?


Just wanted to be sure I didn't get a dud or anything. If this is the normal operating noise I'll have to find a way to move it further away or something so it's not as noticeable.

Mine doesnt make any noise


More likely it's the disks - seagate by chance?

WD Red 4TB actually. I have some other WD Red 3TB and 6TB disks that don't make the noise... Or possibly they do but I never heard them through the Fractal Design case

Yeah, I've heard reports of WD Reds making this "chirping" sound.  


And this would most likely be the disk, especially if it's happening during disk access.


And IIRC, this is normal.
