let me clarify something the clicking is NOT constant but random and usually stops even if data is being read or written to it. Let me also say that the last time i hear it click was on Monday and it started again about an hour ago.
If it were about to fail the clicking would be constant, i would also experience system freezing, data erros and a whole host of other things.
No it wouldnt, not every time, you're assuming to much. What you can assume is in order for their to be sounds, there has
to be movement. Only a few things move inside a computer, fans, HDD, and optical drives. If it was clicking, and you replaced/moved a couple things, it is more likely that they were rubbing against a fan.
Before you go thinking "click is gone, no more problems" run HDTune's error check.
Oh, and there is no such thing as a 4-pin SATA molex, at least any more. Its one or the other.
