HDD Making Loud Grinding Noise

My new HDD is making a loud grinding noise on startup, the issue is this the replacement HDD for the one I bought before it. Is it my PC at this point?

My cpu is the Ryzen 7 1700, Ab350m Pro4 is my mobo.

This is the hdd that I'm having issues with. https://www.amazon.com/Performance-Drive-Internal-Drives-WD4004FZWX/dp/B01GWS2ZOC/ref=sr_1_12?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1517628396&sr=1-12&keywords=4tb+internal+hard+drive

  3. Are you sure it's not your psu?
  4. Send this replacement HD back and get another replacement while the warranty covers the replacement.
    And, as the previous poster implied, make sure the power supply wattage is a little more than enough to run all the stuff inside and outside of the computer.

    So when you tested the drive with the WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostic program, what were the results?
