    SSD Crucial Bx 100 -occasionally ticking noise- vibrating?

    Hello. I have weird issue with my SSD Crucial Bx 100 250 gb. Every hour i can hear ticking noise for 5-10 seconds, coming from my exactly my ssd. I am 99% sure that is coming from ssd because i put my ears close to ssd.
    The most strange thing is that when i touch my case by finger noise is gone.
    So its a kind of vibration but i cant understand because this is ssd without mechanical moving parts. Any ideas what causing this?

    Noise is like ticking watch. < tick tick tick >

    Yes i am sure its coming from ssd because i dont have any fans and hdd installed,only ssd on that part of case. And i put my ears close and its coming exactly from ssd area.

    When i am touching case by my finger that ticking noise coming from ssd is gone. Or opposite. When i am touching my case by finger ticking noise starting.

    Any ideas what it could be?


    My case is Cooler Master Centurion 590. Disk is plugged only by 1 screw.

    then i would fasten it whit one more screw, it can be that a fan if it speeds up it makes some vibration and ssd starts "clapping" towards the bracket and makes the noise.

    My case is Centurion Cooler Master 590.
    I have only SSD plugged Crucial Bx 100 250 GB by 1 screw. But my ssd is mounted here, not directly on drive cage. That does matter? It look like this:


    I dont have any hdds installed to pc. Only that ssd.

    And listen.

    This is not my video but it shows exactly the same situation noise with my ssd, look:


    I know in video there are HDDs Seagate , but this is exactly situation with my ssd. When i am touching case that rattle noise coming from ssd dissapearing. In that area in case i have only ssd installed without hdds. Even case fan is unplugged, so only ssd is left.
    Ssd is plugged only by 1 screw to my case.
    Any ideas why my ssd ( not have mechanical moving parts like hdd ) making that rattle noise occasionally? ( especially after 5 minutes after quitting games on idle )

    When it starting to rattle there are 2 fans active on my case. One case fan on front and cpu fan thats all. GPU fans are off , and PSU Corsair 750 RM fan is off on idle.
    So what is causing that rattle?

    do you have some other fans that you can test for example?

    Hi,
    Make sure you put all the screws in tightly for SSD to the SSD cage.
    You also try to move the SSD down one cage.
