I bought a pre-built desktop a few months back, and have been having the issue for quite some time now, and it has been acknowledged by the company I purchased the computer from. For the past several times I have brought it in for stress tests and for them to duplicate the issue, they have been able to, but they believe it to be the HDD, and have replaced it three times now. I disconnected the Optane module for a week to test out my theory, and no sound. Today, I reconnected it, and the sound began again. I also see it is common for other users, so I wanted to know how I could go about resolving the issue, or perhaps replacing the module.
Sorry, I guess I should have been a bit clearer. I understand the module has no moving parts, and therefore, it technically cannot be making a noise, but I do believe it is causing other components (perhaps the HDD) to make noises that it should otherwise not be making.
