    Check for temperatures since you didn't specify what type of noise... sounds like your fans are going into overdrive

    Ah yes, WoW and lag spikes. after so many years they still plaque us. You can try a defrag if you haven't in a while. you have a huge drive and maybe it was looking for a file that was someplace far away. :)

    Notice any "hard drive noise" or lags with other games or programs?
