Could the HDD be causing it?

Okay, so... A few days ago I got myself a new HDD, Seagate ST1000DM003, as my previous one died. All was fine and well, until I noticed a loud whirring sound, fan-like, could even be classified as a car engine sound. Sometimes even going faster and louder and then slow down an get quieter for a bit. It's mostly present while playing a game. So my question is... can it be the HDD? And is it perfectly normal? All the temperatures are always within their normal range.

By new do you mean brand new or do you mean second hand.If its new try it in another machine if possible,if it's second hand you could have bought a pup.

The old one was still within its warranty so I simply brought it to the place where I bought it, waited a couple of days and got a new one.

So basically, yes ( forgot to say this.... it happens... )
