Question Hard drive screeching noise?

Hi guys, I recently (about a week ago) built a new system (specs below), and my hard drive is making an odd and obnoxious screeching noise when it is being accessed (no noise in BIOS). It is a 1TB Sata III 6.0 GB/s WD Caviar Black. It was not making this noise before about an hour ago. Windows boots fine, there is nothing abnormal in operation, and Crystal Disk Info finds no errors. A YouTube video below has my recording of the noise.

Any idea what it could be, and should I contact WD/Amazon?


Case: CM Storm Enforcer
Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme6
CPU: i5-3570k cooled by an Antec Kuhler H20 920
RAM: 2 x 8 gb G.Skill DDR3-1333 OCed to DDR3-1600
PSU: Corsair CX500 500w 80+ Bronze
No GPU at the moment. Intel HD 4000 is working nicely.
