Your problem could be many things, static can affect many of the components in your system.  The odd sound from the HD does not sound good, I am wondering if you have a voltage issue.  Also check to make sure your cables a plugged in properly on both ends.


Can you check the voltage to rule out that possibility?    http://pinouts.ru/Power/BigPower_pinout.shtml

Try testing the HDDs on a spare machine...... Leave the spare machine working for a few hours....

Just do some file manipulation(transfer/copy) on the rma return HDD..

That should prove who creates trouble, your power supply unit+mobo or HDD itself.

FYI: RMA returns are usually once repaired hard disks....
